A team of qualified and experienced physiotherapists at The Physio Studio will conduct an in-depth analysis of your problem and recommend an appropriate treatment plan.
Causes Of Lower Back Pain
The spinal column that goes from your neck to the pelvic bone is often referred to as the backbone. It has 24 small bones, called vertebrae, stacked over one another. A flexible disc is between each pair of vertebrae, which allows you to bend and stretch. Ligaments also surround vertebrae and discs and act as support for them. The lumbar spine which consist of 5 vertebrae and 5 discs is often where lower back pain occurs.
You will experience back pain if any one of these lumbar vertebrae, discs, or ligaments is overstretched or twisted because of your bad posture or sudden movement. Usually, the pain subsides after a few hours of rest or 2 to 3 days. Lower back Physiotherapy may be required if the pain persists.
The Physio Studio staff is highly qualified and experienced in using the latest equipment in physiotherapy for lower back pain.
Conditions That Cause Lower Back Pain
1. Slipped Disc
The slipped disc is a condition in which discs between pairs of vertebrae are pushed out, and if it pushes against a nerve, you may experience severe pain in the back or radiating pain that stretched from the lumbar spine to the back of the leg and foot known as sciatica. The main cause of slipped discs is aging. As you age, your disc becomes less elastic and causes wear and tear.
About 90% of slipped disc cases are treated with physiotherapy for back pain and pain medication, but severe conditions require surgery for complete treatment.
2. Spinal Stenosis
Spinal stenosis is the gradual narrowing of the space between the spine. This puts extra pressure on nerves and the spinal cord and you may experience pain, numbness, and weakness in the arms if the stenosis occurs in the neck or legs if stenosis happens in lower back. Physiotherapy can treat spinal stenosis if it is diagnosed at an early stage. However, if left untreated, the condition will get worse and surgery will be needed for treatment.
The Physio Studio offer the best post-surgery therapy programs to help you regain your physical strength.
Arthritis is a condition that causes inflammation in the joints. The lower back is the most common area to develop arthritis. The main symptom of arthritis is stiffness and lower back pain, and it gets worse with age.
As there is no cure for arthritis, physiotherapy is the best treatment for arthritis. It keeps the joint in working condition and limits the pain.
4. Spinal Injury
A blow or trauma to your back or lower back can cause a spinal injury, and you might experience lower back pain because of it. The trauma damages the vertebrae or tissue in the spinal cord, causing inflammation and swelling, and as a result the nerve system is damaged.
Excessive bone growth, fractures, tumours along the spine, and thickened ligaments are some other causes of lower back pain.
At The Physio Studio, we have physiotherapists who are trained in Pilates that help the patient regain their core strength and slow down the recurrence of low back pain.
