What are the Common Causes of Back Pain?
With most people having experienced it at least once in their life, back pain is one of the most widespread, most recurring conditions. It can affect people of any age for many different reasons. Some of the most common causes are:
- Muscle or ligament strains and tears
- Bulging or ruptured disks
- Scoliosis – unnatural curvature of the spine
- Sciatica – damage or compression to the sciatic nerve
Regardless of the cause, physiotherapy can help alleviate the symptoms and eventually eliminate back pain.
Many treatments involve muscle-release techniques and applying heat, ice and electrical stimulation to alleviate pain. As your pain lessens, we introduce some posture correction, flexibility and strength exercises for the back and abdominal muscles.
At Central Brunswick Physiotherapy, we encourage our customers to practise the techniques regularly even after the pain has gone to prevent recurrence. If the pain does return, we are always happy to help you through it.

How will Physiotherapy Solve my Back Issues?
Early treatment of back pain is essential if you want to get back to your everyday life. If you come to see us at Central Brunswick Physiotherapy at the first sign of pain, therapy is very effective. The longer you wait, the more difficult it is to treat.
Once the cause of your pain is identified, we will tailor your treatment to your specific problem. Our treatments focus on exercise, mechanics and posture to improve your symptoms and lessen the chances of relapse.
Your treatment plan will be comprised of one or more of the following options:
1) Manual therapy where we use precise hands-on techniques to relieve stiffness and improve movement of spine joints and muscles
2) Movement exercises to restore motion and decrease radiating or referred pain
If you suffer from chronic pain, physiotherapy can still help! Along with the first two options, chronic back pain is best managed with:
3)Progressive strengthening exercises that focus on core stability and endurance
It is also essential to stay active and avoid bed rest for as long as possible.
You may be wondering why you should bother with treatment instead of just waiting it out. While your symptoms may ease over time, they will never completely disappear and you will get flare-ups. That’s why it is important to be assessed by a qualified physiotherapist who will be able to diagnose and treat you properly.
Helping you to help yourself.
You deserve to go back to feeling your best.
While resting and trying to self-medicate are valid options, getting checked out will optimise the recovery process. Contact us today for a consultation!
