  • An Aching, throbbing or sharp pain in your back is not something to ignore.
  • There are many causes of low back pain.
  • If your back pain causes a loss of bowel or bladder function, or tingling/numbness in the genital area, go straight to A&E.
  • Seeing an Osteopath can help with low back pain.

While back pain is something many people suffer from, there’s never a good reason to be complacent. In nearly all cases, there is something wrong structurally that is causing the pain you feel.


If your pain is debilitating and you are unable to move, immediate medical care is best. And, for those struggling with an ache or constant level of pain, it’s best to get it checked out.


Back Pain treatment is not a one-size-fits-all cure. Every case of back pain is unique and part of the treatment at Wrexham Osteopath includes assessment of the symptoms, complaints and diagnostic findings to find the root cause of your back pain and formulate a bespoke plan to treat it effectively.


Back pain is complicated, and back pain can be one of the most difficult things to figure out, so it requires a good diagnosis. Every consultation at Wrexham Osteopath starts with a full, detailed case history, where we listen to everything you have to say. We then assess your spine and how it effects the rest of your body.


Our treatment objectives are keeping you active, mobile, independent and doing the things you love as well as how best to ease your back pain. Treatment is included in the first consultation.

Why Does My Back Hurt?

Back pain is common because the back is a complex area of the body with multiple large and small muscles, bones, ligaments and tendons running throughout it. Each one of them is near nerves that send a message to your brain when something is wrong.


Some causes of back pain are relatively simple – you may have twisted or turned in the wrong direction, straining a muscle. In other cases, your back pain may be due to poor posture, sitting at your desk for too long, straining to lift something, sports injuries, overuse or years of wear and tear. It could also be due to an injury or an illness. Due to the potential complexity of back pain, you should not ignore it and instead have it looked at by a professional.

How Long Does Back Pain Last?

Some people experience low back pain as a minor nuisance that lasts for a few days or weeks that resolves on its own. Unfortunately for some people, back pain is a chronic problem that limits mobility and diminishes quality of life for an extended period. In most cases, back pain does not require urgent care, but when the back pain does not improve after a few days, that is often when treatment is recommended.


Wrexham Osteopath can help to diagnose your back pain, find the root cause and treat it appropriately to the best of our ability with the objective of reducing your pain and preventing it from returning, whilst allowing you to carry on doing the things you love and caring for your family and keeping active. Health is the most important thing for your and your loved ones, and at Wrexham Osteopath we can help!

Is Back Pain A Sign of Getting Old?

Many people do not seek out medical care for back pain because they think they can just deal with it, or that it is a common problem that many people have. However, when there are pain signals being sent to your brain like this, there is a reason. You don’t have to live with back pain whether it is acute and severe or mild and chronic.


Back pain is one of the most common reasons why people visit Wrexham Osteopath. Our objective is to reduce your back pain as much as possible and to reduce the likelihood of it returning.
