Possible physiotherapy diagnosis of your lower back pain and relevant treatments:
Back pain is suffered by 80% of people at some point in their life and it is the most common reason behind work absenteeism. Often the back pain is recurring and, without physiotherapy diagnosis and intervention, 80% of sufferers will have multiple episodes.
Due to the complex nature of the back and the proximity of it’s structures there are many different possibilities for where your pain originates. Back muscle injuries are the most common form of back injury. Muscle fatigue, excessive loads or poor lifting postures are the most common problems. Inefficient back muscles can lead to poor joint stabilisation and subsequent injury.
