Back Pain Bridgnorth

Is your back pain affecting many aspects of your life, your sleep, the activities that you love to do? 

What is Back Pain?

Among the many reasons why people come to our clinic, back pain is one of the most common. 

At times, it begins as a niggle, intensifies over time, or suddenly arises, causing all sorts of restrictions in your life. 

We use a unique combination of manual therapies and the core control program to treat back pain at our clinic. Our approach ensures that your back is strong enough to handle the demands of daily life. 

Occasionally, your back pain may be caused by several factors that are not specifically located in your back. Our responsibility is to identify these factors and develop a treatment plan suitable for your condition, allowing you to do the things you want to do without pain.

Midlands Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Clinic provides physio care for lower back pain and proudly services the local Bridgnorth community.

As many as 80% of people experience lower back pain at some point in their lives, making it an extremely common condition. Although the underlying pathology of low back pain is typically not severe, it is a significant source of pain in the community and has a considerable impact on the economy due to work absenteeism. Although the majority of patients recover from back pain within six weeks, a small percentage may develop chronic back pain and a gradual decline in function. 

Causes of Back Pain

Most back pain is caused by irritation or poor function of the bones, joints, ligaments, or muscles in your back. Vertebral dysfunction, a prevalent condition that arises when the spinal vertebrae compress or irritate the sensitive nerve structures in your lower back, may be the root cause of such irritation. 

Inflammatory arthritis (e.g., ankylosing spondylitis, rheumatoid arthritis), as well as fractures caused by osteoporosis, are other common causes of lower back pain. Additionally, back pain may be “referred” from another location. 

Low back pain caused by cancer (usually originating from another source such as the prostate or lung), severe infections, and compression of the spinal cord are less frequent occurrences.

Assessment of Back Pain

To identify the precise cause of your lower back pain, your physiotherapist will conduct a comprehensive examination of your history, orthopaedic, neurological, and spinal functions. Additional evaluations, such as x-rays and digital scans, may also be advised. 

Treatment for Back Pain

The focus of physiotherapy treatment for low back pain is to restore function to spinal joints that are moving poorly, as well as to reduce muscle tension and increase muscle strength. This leads to improved movement, reduced pain, and decreased nerve irritation. 

Treatments are tailored to the individual case usually consisting of spinal and soft tissue mobilisation, core stabilisation advice, strengthening exercises, stretching and heat/cold therapy.
