Back Pain Physiotherapy

Lower back pain is a common complaint from many people. But managing your lower back pain may not be that simple. You’ll need to contact a physiotherapist to have your condition assessed before you can be prescribed the appropriate treatment. Here’s a look into what back pain physiotherapy may involve.

Back pain physiotherapy

Physiotherapy for back pain may initially involve restoring range of motion and relieving the pain. Your Sydney physio will help you get back to performing your daily routine as quickly as possible, enabling you to carry out your usual work activities and sleep without disturbances. We may use a combination of hands-on physiotherapy with prescribed exercises to release tight muscles and restore mobility.

Your Sports Focus physiotherapist will educate you on what you can and can’t do if you want your back pain to settle as quickly as possible. Keeping active will help you return to your normal activities sooner and is the best way to help resolve your back pain.

Exercises for back pain

Once your back pain has resolved, your physio can take you through some exercises to ensure you’re moving correctly, restore your strength and get you confident about returning to your usual sporting activities. A supervised exercise program is great for those who have had several episodes of pain or lack the confidence to return to regular exercise activities.

If you’re experiencing lower back pain, try to avoid too much bedrest, stay active within comfort and return to your usual activity as soon as you safely can. This has been found to be the best way to successfully recover from back pain. Your Sydney physio will give you more information on this, use hands-on physiotherapy techniques and provide you with a personalised exercise plan to help you recover as fast as possible.
