Lower Back Pain treatment Bondi
Causes of Low back pain
A lot has been said about low back pain already and it is, together with neck problems, the most common problem or issue we see at Physio K.
The low back is a complex structure consisting of vertebrae, intervertebral joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves and discs. Most people with low back pain will have an issue with a few different structures together (e.g. tight muscle and a joint not moving well, or a disc issue with a muscle spasm).
In younger people, it is more common to have a joint that’s ‘stuck’ (meaning, not moving anymore) and muscle or fascia tightness. More progressed back issues will involve the discs and sometimes some nerve irritation as well.

Physiotherapy can help with movement related issues in the low back. It can help reduce your pain and get you back to normal mobility.
Early intervention will significantly reduce the length of treatment necessary to relieve your symptoms. If your problem is chronic: don’t worry, physiotherapy can still help. You will just require longer and different treatment.
In most cases, you do not need surgery! A combination of manual therapy, exercise prescription, dry needling and or visceral manipulation can ease your back pain and can get you back to your normal activities.
