Understanding the Causes of Back Pain & Lower Back Pain

Back pain, including lower back pain and conditions like sciatica, can stem from various factors. 

Poor posture, repetitive movements, sports injuries, and even stress can contribute to the development of these painful conditions. 

Additionally, issues such as misaligned vertebrae, muscle imbalances, and herniated discs may exacerbate discomfort and limit your ability to engage in everyday activities.

Why Choose a Chiropractor for Back Pain and Lower Back Pain?

When seeking relief from back pain, choosing the right healthcare provider is crucial. 

Chiropractors specialise in addressing musculoskeletal issues, including those related to the spine and nervous system. Chiropractic care offers a holistic approach to pain management, focusing on natural, non-invasive techniques to promote healing from within.

By targeting the root cause of your back pain, rather than merely masking symptoms, chiropractic adjustments and therapies aim to restore proper alignment, alleviate pressure on nerves, and enhance overall function. 

This approach not only provides relief from pain but also supports long-term wellness and prevents future injuries.

Types of Back Pain

Acute or Chronic

Around 80% of the general adult population will experience low back pain at some time during their life. The spine is made up of a complex system of bones, joints, muscles and ligaments, and any of these structures can be the cause of your pain. The most important step in addressing your low back pain is getting the correct diagnosis, so the appropriate treatment can give you the fastest possible relief. Often there is more than one issue at play and your chiropractor will be able to assess your condition effectively to advise you towards the most applicable treatment option available.

Disc Injury

An injury to one of your discs is the most common cause of low back pain. The disc may have a small tear, or it may bulge or protrude into the canal that contains your spinal cord, and the existing nerves.

Facet Joint Sprain

Pain due to facet joints often comes on suddenly after a simple movement, and often has associated muscle spasm. Our treatment will aim to settle the initial inflammatory reaction, and get you back moving normally as soon as possible.

Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction

Sacroiliac joints are in the back of the pelvis, and regularly are the cause of low back pain. These joints are often injured during lifting activities.

"Muscular" Low Back pain

Often when someone is told the problem "is only muscular", they are suffering with Non-specific mechanical low back pain. This is a term used when it is difficult to determine exactly which structure is causing the pain, or when multiple structures are contributing to the pain felt. This usually results from poor postural control of the spine, and exercises may be required to improve muscle control and resolve the pain.


Sciatica is a term used to describe leg pain caused by irritation of the sciatic nerve. There is often low back pain associated with sciatica.
The sciatic nerve begins in your low back and passes through your buttock and down the back of your leg. There are multiple structures that can irritate the sciatic nerve and lead to sciatica.
