WHAT ARE THE COMMON SYMPTOMS OF BACK PAIN?

Back pain or low back pain is one of the most common conditions that we treat in physiotherapy. Common symptoms include a dull or strong ache in the lower back that gets more painful when you move and prevents you straightening up, central pain or pain either sides of the spine or pain that radiates down into the buttocks, the back of the thigh or even the lower leg (sciatica).

If you experience any of the following symptoms, please get in touch.

What treatments are best for
back pain?

Response physiotherapists use a wide range of treatments and techniques to help with back pain, as well as offering advice on looking after your back. Your physiotherapist may suggest treatments such as hands-on mobilisation and manipulation of the joints, spinal traction, electrotherapy, or K-taping depending on your problem. Back pain treatment is usually most effective when it involves strengthening exercises. Your physiotherapist may prescribe stretches and exercise programs to strengthen the core, improve or restore mobility in the back and address any underlying imbalances or postural problems.

What causes back pain or low back pain?

Back pain is very common, but its exact cause is often unclear. Pain may be a result of damage to a muscle, ligament, spinal disc, nerve or bone, which would have happened following a simple movement like bending or twisting. Back pain may also be a result of degenerative or wear-and-tear changes within the spine, which can worsen over time, causing inflammation and compression within associated nerves and soft tissues.

How can Physiotherapy help back pain?

Our physiotherapist will combine their in-depth knowledge of the body and how it works with specialised hands-on clinical skills. Depending on your condition, the root cause of the pain and goals, your physiotherapist will devise a personalised treatment to help your recovery.
