Back Pain

Back Pain

Back pain is a pervasive issue that can be both physically and emotionally debilitating, making everyday activities seem like monumental challenges. Whether it's 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 that back pain can take on your life. Our team of dedicated physiotherapists is 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:


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

  2. Subacute Back Pain: This category covers pain persisting for six weeks to three months and is often the result of untreated acute pain or ongoing issues.

  3. 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:


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

  2. Herniated Discs: These occur when the cushions between the vertebrae bulge or rupture, resulting in nerve compression and pain.

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

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

  5. Posture and Lifestyle: Poor posture, prolonged periods of sitting, and a lack of physical activity can contribute to the development and exacerbation of back pain.
