Lower Back Pain
LOWER BACK PAIN
One in every three people will experience debilitation back pain at one point in their life. In fact, it’s one of the most common reasons for missing work. Rest assured, though, there is a cure for it.
WHAT CAUSES IT
Pain is an alarm system for your body. Muscles spasms are only a symptom of pain from the nervous system protecting your back.
HOW WE ASSESS YOUR PAIN
Thousands of research papers have been published detailing how best to treat low back pain. From this research has come very effective techniques and strategies to help people recover from back pain and return to the activities they love. We keep up on the latest evidence for treating back pain, ensuring you’re always in good hands with us.
At Stepaside Physiotherapy, we examine you to pinpoint which joint(s) or muscle(s) are in “protection mode”. We then release these muscles to teach your nervous system to relax through a variety of gentle movements to restore confidence in your back. This allows you to move freely and help reduce or even eliminate your back pain.
HOW YOU CAN TREAT IT
Gone are the days where you must hold your back straight in order to protect it. This is actually the worst thing you can do. We encourage only performing light duties. The most effective at-home pain relief strategy is to make sure you breathe and move and also relax as you move.
