If your back hurts, don't ignore the pain. Did you know that over 80% of Australians suffer from back pain at some time in their lives? For rapid recovery, see our physiotherapists early. Everyday activities can trigger back pain.
The Physiotherapists at Marina Crichton Physiotherapy have the training to correctly assess your pain. Causes of back pain are many and can include postural stress, muscle strains, joint strains, ligament sprains, disc problems or arthritis. We skillfully diagnose back pain arising from a musculoskeletal disorder and provide safe and effective treatments.
Our Physiotherapists treat back pain in a variety of ways. Recent research indicates that one of the most important treatments for low back pain is that the patient be encouraged to move and exercise.
Back pain tends to fall into a few key categories:
Acute – Sudden onset, usually a sharp or strong ache
Chronic – Pain that has come on gradually or due to an incident some months or years ago.
Current evidence supports general exercise programs result in reduced disability, reduced absenteeism and faster return to work rate. At Marina Crichton Physiotherapy we offer BOUNCE Back rehabilitation exercise programs as part of our back care services.
