Back pain is a pervasive issue that can be both physically and emotionally debilitating, making everyday activities seem like monumental challenges. Whether the result of a sudden injury, a chronic condition, or poor posture and lifestyle choices, back pain is a concern that affects individuals of all ages. At Physio Active, we recognize the toll back pain can take on your life. Our dedicated physiotherapists are here to offer you the relief you seek and help you regain your quality of life.


Unpacking the complexity of back pain

Back pain is a multifaceted condition with origins in various structures within the spine and its surroundings. It can be categorized based on its duration:

Acute back pain: Typically lasting for a few days to a few weeks, acute back pain is often linked to sudden injuries or strains.

Subacute back pain: This category covers pain persisting for six weeks to three months and can result in untreated acute pain or ongoing issues.

Chronic back pain: Extending beyond three months, chronic back pain may be due to underlying medical conditions, previous injuries, or long-term poor posture.


The causes of back pain are diverse and can include:

Muscle strains: Overexertion, improper lifting techniques, or sudden movements can lead to muscle strains in the back.

Herniated discs: They occur when the cushions between the vertebrae bulge or rupture, resulting in nerve compression and pain.

Arthritis: Conditions such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis can affect the spine.

Spinal stenosis: The narrowing of the spinal canal can exert pressure on the spinal cord and nerves.

Posture and lifestyle: Poor posture, prolonged periods of sitting, and a lack of physical activity can develop and exacerbate back pain.


The comprehensive Physio Active approach to back pain treatment

At Physio Active, we adopt a holistic and patient-centric approach to addressing back pain. Our goal extends beyond immediate pain relief; we aim to delve into the root causes and enhance your overall spinal health.


Comprehensive assessment

Your journey to a pain-free back commences with a meticulous assessment by our experienced physiotherapists. They will delve into your medical history, conduct a thorough physical examination, and, when needed, recommend imaging tests such as X-rays or MRI scans. These diagnostic measures identify the source and extent of your back pain, forming the foundation of your personalized treatment plan.


Pain management

For individuals experiencing acute pain, our initial priority is to provide relief. We employ a combination of modalities, including heat and cold therapy, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation, to alleviate pain and reduce inflammation. Our primary aim is to enhance your comfort and mobility.

This knowledge empowers you to maintain a healthy spine and reduce the risk of future episodes of back pain.
