We have had a request from one of our facebook followers who has asked for some advice on how to avoid getting lower back pain.
It is a problem that affects many people at some point in their life and we’ve all heard horror stories of people with crippling issues. However, let’s stop the fear right there – most issues can be treated conservatively with physiotherapy – it is extremely rare that further intervention (such as surgery) is required and even if it is, the techniques are very successful now. Half the battle is knowing what is causing the pain so if you are concerned about any pain you are getting, pop in to see us and we will be able to diagnose the cause of the pain and the best course of action. This usually involves some simple exercises that do not take very long, alongside hands-on treatment to help get rid of the symptoms quickly. Some simple advice on how to make sure the pain doesn’t return is also given.
If you have any questions for our physios, please do not hesitate in getting in touch either by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, calling us on 020 8940 3074 or you can like us on facebook and post your questions there.
