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
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.
