Low Back Pain

low-back-painBack pain can affect many people over their lifetime and is one of the most common conditions that we see at Whittlesea Physiotherapy.  It can range from being severe and debilitating to a simple awareness that interferes with your everyday activities. Back pain can often be caused by poor posture, an injury or overuse, inflammation, arthritis, stress, stiffness and muscular imbalances.

At Whittlesea Physiotherapy, our experienced physiotherapists perform a comprehensive assessment to help identify the true underlying cause of your pain, rather than simply focusing on the symptoms.   An individual treatment plan is then developed to help alleviate your symptoms and assist you with your rehabilitation and prevention of further episodes, as we know how disruptive low back pain can be to your lifestyle. This plan is tailor made so the best possible outcome can be reached for each individual. We have a variety of treatment techniques available to relieve symptoms, restore movement and get the optimal result for you. These include:

  • Joint mobilisation
  • Soft tissue mobilisation
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Dry needling
  • Ergonomic advice
  • Posture education
  • Comprehensive exercise program
  • Taping
  • Electrotherapy
  • McKenzie method
  • Muscle Energy Technique

To ensure the highest level of care for each of our patient’s, the physiotherapists will keep your referring practitioner (eg. GP)  informed of your progress and discuss the need for further investigation if necessary.

Most back problems respond well with physiotherapy, allowing you to return to your usual activities as soon as possible. Don’t put up with back pain any longer, call our clinic for an assessment with one of our experienced practitioners today.
