Solihull back pain specialist discusses tight hamstrings

Back pain specialist in Solihull considers that tight hamstrings are a cause of many back pain problems.  If you have tight or shortened hamstrings you are at risk of overloading your lumbar spine and developing back pain from bulging discs, trapped nerve, muscular strain or spinal ligament sprains.

Solihull physiotherapist and osteopath John Williams has noticed many of his patients who arrive at the Solihull Back Pain Clinic complaining of back pain have shortened hamstrings.

When you forward bend the tight hamstrings will limit your movement and the remainder of the flexion has to be provided by your lower lumbar spine which acts like a pivot.  Much load and stress is put on the lower lumbar discs which can result in a disc bulge or prolapsed disc.  The disc in turn may press against your sciatic nerve giving you trapped nerve symptoms such as sciatica.

A special stretching routine is required to lengthen your hamstrings as many people will testify they have stretched for years with little effect.  Developmental progressive stretches are required which can be demonstrated at the Atlas Pain Relief Centre clinic in Solihull.

Neck pain treatment in Solihull at Solihull Back Pain Clinic

Neck pain treated at Solihull Back Pain Clinic by neck pain specialist practitioners.  Stiff neck, cricked neck and trapped nerves in the neck will all cause restricted neck movement and pain in the neck.

Often tingling in the fingers or pins and needles can be felt  if you have a trapped nerve in the neck.

Arthritis and wear and tear are often offered as a diagnosis with little help regarding treatment unless its medication.  Often an elderly person with arthritis does not want a spinal neck manipulation as it could be dangerous.

It might be better to look for more conservative treatment from an osteopath or physiotherapist who can mobilise your neck gently and massage the muscles and soft tissues allowing you to restore lost movement.

As an alternative to Solihull Chiropractor treatment the Atlas Pain Relief Centre has physiotherapists, osteopaths, acupuncture practitioners and massage therapists to treat stiff painful neck symptoms.  The Atlas team are experienced at working with the spine and degenerative discs.
