Eighty percent of people suffer from back pain at some point in their lives.

Back pain is the second most common reason for visits to the doctor’s office, outnumbered only by upper-respiratory infections.

Back pain is a symptom that has many causes including muscle or ligament strain, slipped or herniated disc, sciatica, spinal stenosis, and spondylosis.

Back pain, slipped/herniated disc and degenerative disc disease can arise due to sub-optimal joint movement. Optimal spinal joint motion is important for disk and joint health, as movement encourages the exchange of fluids, nutrients and waste. Without good joint movement, discs and joints may degenerate at a faster-than-usual rate.

Trigonal can help patients with back pain by identifying the underlying cause for the back pain or condition, the lifestyle factors which are likely to make it worse and the likely rate of progression of the condition. From this point a sound treatment plan can be implemented.
