Back and neck pain are the second most common causes for visiting the doctor behind colds/flu. Eighty percent of people will suffer from back pain during their lifetime. Some people can develop chronic or reoccurring back pain that can have a negative effect on their work, social and leisure activities. Back pain can originate from the lower back, mid back or neck.
The most common causes of back pain are posture, weak core muscles, car accidents, repetitive movements or decreased flexibility. Back pain can be treated highly effectively with physiotherapy, including conditions such as low back pain, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, whiplash, ‘slipped discs’, mechanical back pain, facet joint syndrome and arthritis.
At ReBalance Physiotherapy we will conduct a thorough assessment of your back pain (both current and previous bouts) and will include a full medical history. A diagnosis will be provided with a specific individualised treatment plan to get you pain free and prevent reoccurrence.
