Singapore is a highly productive country. Us fellow Singaporeans work long hours, tirelessly connecting the world, making important phone calls, conducting international conferences and more. Long hours in office usually can lead to a lot of body aches such as back ache. Back pain is very common. Most people will suffer one or more episodes of back pain during their lives. In many cases, it starts suddenly and gets better quickly, without the need for any treatment.

Types of Back Pain
There are many different types of back pain, with different causes. The key to getting the right treatment is to establish which type of back pain you may be suffering from and to seek advice if it is not improving.
Your spine is one of the strongest parts of your body. It is made of solid blocks of bone known as vertebra, joined together by softer pads or discs which act as shock absorbers and maintain flexibility. Your back is reinforced by strong ligaments, surrounded by powerful muscles for support. It is, in fact, surprisingly difficult to damage your spine. It may take years of bad postures to finally wear down your spine.
The majority of people with back pain are suffering from what is known as ‘simple’ or ‘mechanical’ back pain. This means that the pain is not related to any serious underlying condition and there are no trapped or compressed nerves. We do not always know the exact tissues that are involved in simple back pain. Muscles, joints and ligaments can all be involved. Simple back pain can be caused by poor posture, prolonged sitting in an uncomfortable position, and even muscular tension due emotional or work-related stress, especially in Singapore which highly emphasise in productive, hardworking office culture.
As we get older, wear and tear may contribute to back pain. The shock-absorbing pads or discs between the bones of the back can narrow with age and this can cause stiffness, pain and make it difficult to move.
Simple back pain is relatively common. Less frequently, the nerves of the back can sometimes become irritated, compressed or trapped. Again, there can be many reasons why this happens, but slipped discs or wear and tear can lead to pain spreading down the leg, which is commonly referred to as sciatica. This can be accompanied by pins and needles, tingling, numbness and weakness in all or part of the leg and foot.
Why Do People Get Back Pain
People experience back pain for all sorts of reasons. It might be the way they sit or stand, bad sleeping posture, or because their work or lifestyle causes stress and strain on their back. Bad habit coupling with long hours of same posture create even higher tension in specific body parts. Worry or stress can cause tension in the back muscles, or can delay recovery of existing back pain. Sometimes an old injury, or wear and tear over time, might also cause problems.
However, there is often no obvious reason why back pain develops.
Although it can be very painful, back pain rarely has a serious underlying cause. Seeing a qualified health professional, such as a chiropractor, who is experienced in diagnosing conditions of the back and spine, can help treat back pain, and also identify if a referral or specialist investigations are needed.
Symptoms of Back Pain
Back pain can be very uncomfortable as the tissues and structures of the back are very susceptible to pain.
Back pain can be felt in one or both sides of the back, sometimes between the shoulder blades or from waist level and into the buttocks and down the front or back of the legs. It can be a sharp or dull pain, and can spread into the lower legs and sometimes as far as the feet. In some severe case, you may feel numbness of tingling sensation at parts of your body. E.g. lower arm, palm, fingers etc.
If the pain does not go after a few days, or starts to get worse, it is worth seeking professional advice. Early treatment will help you get better faster.
Chiropractors are best known for manual treatments such as spinal manipulation, where they use their hands to free stiff or restricted joints, or mobilisation, which is the gradual moving of joints.
But they may also use other recommended treatments such as certain types of acupuncture, electrotherapy, stretching exercises and rehabilitation, all of which form part of a chiropractor’s package of care. Your chiropractor may also offer lifestyle advice to help recovery and to prevent repeated episodes of back pain.
If your chiropractor does not think you can be helped by chiropractic treatment, you may be referred back to your GP or to another health professional. Chiropractors do not prescribe medication, so if this is needed, you may be referred back to your GP. As chiropractors support a joined-up approach to care, they may ask if they can send a brief report to your GP.
Many people who suffer long-term back pain benefit from regular, supportive chiropractic care to reduce the risk of recurrent episodes. Try out our trigonal health program, aiming to restore your body to its peak-performing state and reduce stress and strain.

No more Sinus
I used to have very bad sinus problems that caused a lot of inflamation and swelling on my forehead and T-zone. During the worst periods, I usually cannot do anything due to severe migranes and headaches. The only thing I could do was to lie down and wait for it to pass. After just 4 chiropractic sessions (4 months ago), I can sleep well and has zero sinus problems in these 4 months...and counting!

More than health, it's happiness
I have a desk job and I work 8 hours a day and I constantly have back, shoulder and neck ache. Everyday after work I would have no energy and spirit to do anything else. This has created an impact on my family, they have not gotten much of my attention previously. My friend recommend me chiropractic service, I tried it out for the first 10 sessions, the effect was amazing! I slept better, I got more energy, no more soreness and ache, and my happiness just kept pouring out. My children are loving the new me!
Fast and Neat
I always bring my parents and family out for a walk during weekends. Recently my mom kept complaining on the knees and body ache, her movement is slower as well and less interested to go out. I have done chiropractic session before, hence I persuaded her to try. After four sessions, she now automatically reminds me when is her next season!
