Causes of back pain

There are many factors that can contribute to spinal pain, however in the absence of trauma or injury, sedentary lifestyle and poor posture are certainly big players in the game. With desk-based jobs increasing in our technology-focused times, people are spending up to 10 hours per day sitting and staring at a screen. As humans, are bodies are designed to be moving throughout the day.

Our body responds and adapts on a daily basis to stresses we are exposed to, most of this happens without us even noticing it. But if something does not work the way it should we suddenly get a wakeup call.

Are you suffering from back pain? You’re not alone. 8 out of every 10 people will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. In fact, it’s the number one cause of days taken off work in the UK. And, if you’re suffering from back pain, you’ll be trying to fight it with pain relief and getting nowhere fast.

It doesn’t have to be like this and you don’t have to live through the pain. For centuries chiropractors have been treating back pain and caring for people’s spines and nervous systems. Here’s how it works…


Back pain can be debilitating and emotionally distressing, but with the help of your chiropractor this can be addressed naturally and effectively.

At Putney Chiropractic we will listen to your concerns, perform a thorough examination possibly take a spinal X-ray all to find the cause of your back pain. Once a cause has been established we will outline a course of action, bespoke to you. Like at any chiropractor we perform specific spinal adjustments which manipulate the spine back to its normal level of movement and function.

Managing stresses to the spine and body is also very important – including the physical (falls, overtraining, no movement), emotional (stress, depression etc) and chemical (bad diet and products we use). Movement is also super important. We have a great series of exercises to help take your spine through its full range of movement everyday.
