In Australia back pain is experienced by 70% of the population at some point in their lives. Back pain can arise from many different sources but the majority of pain is from the lower back known as the lumbar spine. This portion of your back experiences the most load during daily activities and as a result the facet joints, discs and ligaments associated with this area can be vulnerable to injury.
Our Physiotherapists are able to assess and diagnose which structures are causing the pain and give you the appropriate treatment and advice, both in the short term and for ongoing long term management.
During the assessment our Physiotherapists will be able to test for any more serious injury and are able to make the necessary onward referrals to medical professionals or referrals for investigations such as scans or x-rays.
