What are the consequences of poor lifting technique?


Back pain and sciatica

 

We have all been told over and over that we should always bend at the knees and keep a straight back when lifting.  What happens if you don’t do this? CASE STUDY:

20 year old male patient, that began experiencing lower back pain and morning stiffness, which has steadily worsened to the point where he is now in constant pain and finds it difficult to work.

At the base of the spine, it was identified that the last vertebral disc had become greatly reduced compared to the other disc spaces in his spine.

This is a degenerative process that greatly accelerates if the back joints are readily subjected to high levels of strain during lifting.

Bending at the knees and keeping a straight back when we lift keeps this strain to a minimum. This is otherwise known as keeping  a natural spine!

Although Osteopathic treatment may help relieve the pain and stiffness that occurs in a case like this, the real cure is to make sure that you look after your lower back in the first place

Sciatica


Sciatica

The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in your body, running from your lower back, through your pelvis and buttocks and all the way down both legs, to your feet. Any pain caused by irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve is often referred to as Sciatica. The pain caused radiates out from your lower back down to your calf; this pain ranges from mild to very painful.

Causes of sciatica

The most common cause of Sciatica is disc injuries (mentioned in a previous blog here by Dynamic Osteopaths) and is often referred to as a ‘slipped disc’. Other common causes can involve lumbar spinal stenosis (spinal foramen narrowing), degenerative disc disease (arthritis / spondylosis) and pregnancy. Less common causes include injuries, infections, or growth in the spine.

Symptoms of sciatica

If you are suffering from Sciatica you will experience at least one of the following symptoms;

1) Constant dull pain in one side of your buttocks or leg.

2) Felling of burning or tingling down your leg.

3) Numbness and difficulty when moving your leg or foot.

4) When you stand or walk you experience difficulty due to a sharp pain.

5) When sitting the pain worsens.

Treatment of Sciatica

Acute sciatica may pass without the need for actual treatment, however it is always important to get it checked by your osteopath. Meanwhile to help relieve the symptoms you can take over the counter painkillers, apply hot or cold packs to the area and perform light exercise. In more chronic case of sciatica when pain is persistent, here at Dynamic Osteopaths we provide light manual therapy along side a structured exercise programme under supervision to help ease your symptoms and provide a better recovery. Failing all means of conservative treatment by your osteopath an epidural steroid injections can also be delivered at the source of the inflamed sciatic nerve root to help alleviate the pain. If the pain has not been relieved with manual or medical treatments as stated above then surgery may be needed, but this is very uncommon.

Prevention of Sciatica

To help prevent sciatica there are some measures you can put in place to minimise your risk of a back injury or ‘slipped disc’ that could lead to sciatica. Firstly, you need to ensure you have a good posture and if you are required to lift heavy objects at work you need to ensure your lifting technique is suitable to stop injury. Secondly, before you participate in any form of exercise ensure you stretch and when you have finished the exercise session stretch again. Lastly, there are some very simple and regular exercise that you should perform to help improve your flexibility to minimise the risk of a back injury.

Pain Relief and Osteopathy


Osteopaths spend most of their time working with people who are dealing from pain – whether it occurs at a young age from sport or in the older generation from arthritis. Osteopaths roles are to alleviate pain, to improve mobility and to make patients’ live more comfortable.  

What is pain?  Pain is a warning signal that something is wrong. If is one of the body’s natural defence mechanisms to alert you to a problem but it is there to stop you from further damage.  

Osteopaths diagnose the cause of pain and can often do a great deal to help reduce the level of your pain and suffering. But what directly causes pain? Often, it is the result of localised inflammation for injured tissues which created pressure on nerves.  

Your pain

The osteopath will look at how your whole body functions and be able to reduce strain on the painful areas caused by mechanical problems elsewhere.  

There are times when it is wise for you to take medication in addition to osteopathic treatment. Osteopaths frequently work in close cooperation with your GP.

Why an osteopath?

Osteopaths help to reduce tissue inflammation by a number of methods ranging from muscular treatment to spinal manipulation and joint rehabilitation.

This process will help to reduce muscular spasms and increase mobility, helping to create healthier state in which damaged tissues can heal.

Much long-term, recurrent pain is caused by degenerative changes to the body’s framework. Nobody can reverse the process of ages, unfortunately! However, osteopathic treatment using manual and physical therapy in addition to medical acupuncture can often ease pain, reduce swelling and improve the mobility and range of motion at a joint. Pain control is an important part is the treatment and osteopaths give guidance on simple method to carry out at home.

Visiting your osteopath

When you visit your osteopath of the first time a case history will be taken and you will be given a physical examination in regards to your complaints.
You will normally be asked to remove relevant areas of clothing and perform a simple series of movements. The osteopath will then use their examination to identify any points of dysfunction or excessive strain throughout certain structures.
The osteopath may need additional investigations such as x-rays or blood tests. This will allow a full diagnosis and suitable treatment plans to be developed with you. Osteopathy is a patient centred approach which means the treatment is geared to you as an individual.

Osteopathic fees

Most people consults their osteopath privately. However, and increasing number of patients work with GP practices so that it may be possible for your doctor to refer you to an osteopath on the NHS.
Most private health care insurance schemes give benefit for osteopathic treatment. Some companies Will reimburse the total fee that you have paid to the osteopath, some only a percentage. Most companies require a GP or specialist referral. All insurance companies have helplines to explain your actual benefits and methods of claiming.

Osteopathy and patient protection

Osteopaths are highly trained to recognise and treat many causes of pain. Osteopathy is an established system of diagnosis and manual treatment which is recognised by the British Medical Association as a discrete clinical discipline.

For the last 60 years, osteopaths have worked within a system of voluntary regulation that sets standards of training and practice. In 1993, osteopathy became the first major complimentary healthcare profession to be accorded statutory regulation under the 1993 Osteopaths act. This has been culminated in the opening of the statutory register of osteopaths by the general osteopathic Council in May 1998. Only those practitioners able to show that they have been in safe and competent practice of osteopathy will you be allowed to gain entry onto the register and in the future all osteopaths will be trained to the same high rigourous standards. All osteopaths will have medical malpractice insurance and to follow a strict code of conduct. Patients will have the same safeguards as when currently they consult a doctor or dentist.
