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

It can start as a minor discomfort, gradually worsen, or suddenly appear, causing an array of restrictions in your life.

Sometimes your back pain can be due to any number of reasons, which aren’t actually specifically located in your back.

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

Lower back pain is an extremely common condition with up to 80% of the population experiencing back pain at some time during the lives. Although the underlying pathology of low back pain is usually not serious, it is an important cause of pain in the community and has considerable impact on the economy due to time taken off work. Whilst the vast majority of patients with back pain will recover within 6 weeks, a small number will go on to develop  chronic back pain and a gradual deterioration of functionality. 

Causes of Back Pain

The majority of causes of back pain result from irritation or poor function of the bones, joints, ligaments, or muscles in your back. Such irritation may be caused by Vertebral dysfunction, a prevalent condition that arises when the spinal vertebrae compress or irritate the sensitive nerve structures in your lower back. 

Lower back pain can also be caused by inflammatory arthritis (such as ankylosing spondylitis and rheumatoid arthritis), as well as fractures resulting from osteoporosis. Moreover, back pain may be referred from another part of the body. 

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

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 physiotherapy treatment of low back pain concentrates on restoring function to spinal joints that are moving poorly, as well as reducing muscle tension and increasing muscle strength. As a result, there is improved movement, reduced pain, and decreased nerve irritation. 

Treatments are tailored to each individual case and typically involve spinal and soft tissue mobilisation, advice on core stabilisation, strengthening exercises, stretching, and heat/cold therapy.
