Low Back Pain

Back Pain Treatment

Whether you've been dealing with low back pain for a day, a month or a year - we're here to help. Low back pain, although common can be quite tricky to treat. There are many structures in the low back that can contribute to pain which can include:

  • Spinal joints (facet joints)

  • Instability

  • Intervertebral discs

  • Arthritis of the hip

  • Spondylisthesis (slipped vertebrae) 

  • Trapped Nerve

  • Crush fracture

  • Spinal Stenosis

  • Sacroiliac Joint Injury

  • Pars Fracture

How We Treat

Managing low back pain is a very individualised process. If there is too much movement going through one part of the spine it can lead to repeated stress through one of more of the structures mentioned above. What can happen is the muscles can spasm around the area to reduce the movement and stabilise the area. Initial management is often focused around trying to relax the spasmed muscles while restoring movement to the parts of the body which have caused the injury in the first place. If you've had low back pain for over three months you should read this blog.


Common treatments can include:

  • A whole body assessment to find the root cause of the problem

  • Reducing muscle spasm around the injury

  • A personalised exercise program to strengthen and reduce pain

  • Investigating work or lifestyle factors that may be contributing

  • Restoring good movement through the spine to reduce load on the injury

  • Help you sleep better and get back to a pain free life
