Often back pain is a result of a sudden incident or injury, continued poor postural habits, or can be simply the accumulation of physical stress on the spine. However, there are other causes too, such as inflammatory conditions, or, in rare but more serious cases, problems such as progressive diseases affecting bones and joints.
How can physiotherapy help back pain? It has been widely acknowledged that physiotherapy is a safe and efficient way to treat back pain. We are trained to diagnose the problem by carrying out comprehensive assessments. A recent study showed that patients who underwent early physiotherapy treatment and adhered to it following an onset of acute lower back pain resulted in substantially lower costs and reduced use of health care resources over a two year period.
A personalised treatment plan for your particular problem will be put in place by your physio, which may involve a combination of lifestyle advice and education, a tailored exercise plan, deep tissue massage, dry needling and postural advice, to restore a normal range of motion, strength and full function.
