Low back pain is the most common condition effecting people today. 90% of low back pain is diagnosed as ‘non-specific low back pain’ and it can be a result of several different reasons which vary from person to person. This can depend on your previous injuries, the job you do, muscle weakness and lifestyle factors.
We have seen several different causes from hip injuries, old ankle injuries and grinding teeth to affect the muscle in your back.
95% of low back pain is not caused by a serious pathology but it is a condition that can really affect people’s lives and stop them from doing the things they enjoy.
Unfortunately, there’s an abundance of misinformation and misdiagnosis in the medical world when it comes to low back pain. This can lead to an ongoing fear and avoidance of activities.
People often go from one health professional to another or try to find an answer in a scan.
We have helped hundreds of people who have been unable to do the normal things in life like exercise, work or enjoy time with family and friends to get free from back pain even if they have had it for years (click here to see reviews).
Our practice is evidence based. We use a biopsychosocial healthcare model which is the most up to date best practise for persistent low back pain (and any other persistent pain conditions).
Specifics of what we do fall into the categories below:
• Pain Education
• Movement and Exercise Prescription
