Lower Back Pain Treatment in Perth: How Physiotherapy can Help

Are you part of the 80% of individuals who will grapple with back pain during their lifetime? Back pain can be a significant hindrance, impeding your ability to carry out even the most mundane tasks. However, there's a silver lining: physiotherapy can be a game-changer. At PhysioLogix, we are adept at diagnosing and addressing back pain, guiding you on your journey back to a life free of discomfort.

Understanding Back Pain

Back pain can stem from various components of your back, such as muscles, nerves, ligaments, discs, and bones. It typically manifests as a profound aching sensation in the lower back, often intensified by movement or sustained positions.

Acute back pain can strike suddenly due to an injury, such as heavy lifting, bending, or twisting in a manner that harms the muscles, ligaments, or joints of the back. Conversely, chronic back pain can gradually develop due to repetitive actions that exert stress on the back.

Typical Back Injuries

Here are some prevalent injuries that can lead to back pain:

  • Muscle strain: This can occur due to improper posture or lifting heavy loads, resulting in muscle fatigue and back pain. PhysioLogix can guide you in identifying the cause of your strain and offer targeted exercises to fortify your muscles and ward off future strains.

  • Poor posture: Extra stress on the various structures of the spine can lead to back pain over time. Our team can evaluate your posture and provide corrective exercises and guidance to help you maintain spinal health.

  • Disc bulge: Disc injuries can arise due to sudden movements or long-term postural stress, leading to inflammation and pain. At PhysioLogix, we can administer treatments to alleviate inflammation and pain, and exercises to strengthen your back and prevent additional disc injuries.

  • Facet joint sprain: These joints can be sprained if you move in an awkward manner, leading to back pain and restricted movements. Our physiotherapists can offer treatments to alleviate inflammation and pain, and exercises to enhance your mobility and prevent future sprains.

  • Sciatica: Compression of the sciatic nerve can cause lower back pain, which may radiate to the leg or buttock, and cause pins and needles, numbness, muscle spasms, reduced flexibility, and weakness. At PhysioLogix, we can administer treatments to relieve your symptoms and exercises to prevent future sciatic nerve complications.
