Back Pain Health Clinic
Back pain is a common complaint. Most people in Ireland will experience low back pain at least once during their lives. Back pain is one of the most common reasons people go to the doctor or miss work.
On the bright side, you can take measures to prevent or lessen most back pain episodes. If prevention fails, simple home treatment and proper body mechanics will often heal your back within a few weeks and keep it functional for the long haul.
Symptoms of back pain may include muscle ache, shooting or stabbing pain, pain that radiates down your leg, limited flexibility or range of motion of your back and an inability to stand straight. Back pain that lasts from a few days to a few weeks is considered acute. Pain lasting for three months or longer is considered chronic. A health clinic is a valuable place to begin when managing back pain.
