A common but treatable complaint
Studies show most people will suffer with back pain at some point in their lives. Back pain can be chronic or acute in nature, affecting our work and social lives. However, most back pain is treatable through correct diagnosis. There are many symptoms associated with back pain depending on its origin. Lower back pain can manifest itself across the base of the spine and sometimes refer into the buttock or leg. Sciatica is a classic example of this causing a feeling of pins and needles or numbness into the leg. This occurs when the sciatic nerve is being impinged somewhere along its pathway. Upper back and neck pain can refer pain into the head, shoulders and arms. Poor posture, whiplash,scoliosis and sporting injuries are commonly associated with upper back pain.Your physiotherapist may also use some techniques similar to that of a chiropractor. These techniques are optional and can be performed if required to realign your spine or pelvis.
How can Physiotherapy help?
Addressing muscle imbalances and improving joint mobility is the first step towards a pain free back. Improving core stability and strength through a program to suit your needs will prevent recurrence.
