Back Pain


Low Back Pain - A Common Problem

Low back pain is one of the most common problems seen by physiotherapists. According to research, 4 in 5 people will experience back pain at some point in their life. That sounds like a lot of people but it won’t affect everyone in the same way. For some people, back pain will be a simple ache that corrects itself over time but for others it can cause long-standing pain and disability.

Seeking professional advice and getting the right treatment quickly is essential. It reduces the risk of low back pain lingering, speeds up recovery and reduces its impact on everyday life.

    In the common presentation of acute low back pain, pain develops after movements that involve lifting, twisting, or forward-bending. The symptoms may start soon after the movements or upon waking up the following morning. The description of the symptoms may range from tenderness at a particular point to diffuse pain. It may or may not worsen with certain movements, such as raising a leg, or positions such as sitting or standing. Pain radiating down the legs (known as sciatica) may be present.
