According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare 70-90% of Australians will suffer backpain during their life. Luckily, most backpain is preventable and treatable with life-style modification and osteopathic medicine.
Mechanical backpain is common and usually feels like an ache with varying degrees of intensity and 'sharpness' that varies with movement and is worse in certain positions. Backpain is often worst after periods of inactivity, such as after waking and after sitting, and may ease of when muscles and joints warm up. Often, backpain is caused by strained or overworked muscles and can persist even after massaging the area of pain. In this case, it is often necessary to address other pactors such as muscle trigger points, joint mis-alignment or nerve impingements.
