Back Pain

Back pain that arises from the muscles, joints, discs and tendons of the lower back is widely referred to as ‘mechanical back pain’. This differentiates it from pain coming from other structures such as the organs, from an immune system reaction or from an infection. Mechanical back pain is extremely common and reportedly affects around 80% of us at some point in our lives. It commonly causes pain when moving in a certain way or when we adopt certain postures/positions. Most patients experience it as either an acute episode or as an ongoing re-occurring problem. The good news is that there are lots of things that can be done to relieve the symptoms, and more importantly, to improve our ‘back health’ and thus prevent the issues coming back. Our physiotherapists are specialists in the diagnosing of this problem (including ruling out other causes and including GP/specialists where needed) and also in the treating of back pain, whether that be through manual ‘hands on’ therapy or through a tailored exercise regime.
