Back Pain

Eighty percent (80%) of people will experience lower back pain at some stage during their lives. 

Causes of Lower Back Pain 

The main causes of lower back pain are usually musculoskeletal in origin and known as non-specific lower back pain. Most commonly back injuries are caused by muscular strains, ligament sprains and joint dysfunction, particularly when pain arises suddenly during or following physical loading of the spine. 

Your physiotherapist is an expert who treats and can help you prevent low back pain. 

Early diagnosis and treatment is the easiest way to recover quickly from lower back pain and to prevent recurrence.
