Lower Back Pain

back_painLower back pain is a frequently occurring injury. Early treatment can lead to a speedy recovery and prevent it from happening again by establishing the root cause of the problem. Back pain can have several causes such as poor posture, overuse, incorrect lifting techniques, getting jolted in a car, flat feet or even weak core muscles. There are several structures in the back that may cause pain such as discs, ligaments, muscles, joint and nerves. Your Physiotherapist can use many different treatment techniques to alleviate your back pain such as massage, soft tissue work, joint mobilisations, dry needling and exercise.

Physiotherapy will aim to:

  • Reduce pain, inflammation and stiffness
  • Restore full movement
  • Strengthen the core muscles
  • Help you to return to full activities of sports or work
