Are you suffering from Lower Back Pain?
Low back pain is the leading cause of disability in Australia and a very common complaint seen in our clinic. Acute back pain can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, while chronic back pain is pain that lasts longer than three months. Low back pain is more likely to occur in individuals between the ages of 30-50 years. Most low back pain is the result of an injury, such as muscle sprains or strains due to sudden movements or from lifting heavy objects.
Chronic lower back pain is also associated with a loss of muscle tone, which makes the back more prone to injury. Our osteopaths can prescribe specific back strengthening exercises and also teach you good lifting techniques which are helpful in preventing and managing low back pain.
