Back Pain

If you’re experiencing lower back pain, you are not alone.

Our expert physiotherapists are here to help you feel stronger, better, faster.

Lower back pain can immobilise you. Living with constant pain can cause your muscles to tense up, making the pain worse. Our expert physiotherapists can alleviate your lower back pain to get you moving again.

We know you need treatment - and reassurance.

We find out the cause​

We ask you how your lower back pain happened.

We ascertain the level of your pain​​

We’ll ask you to move and find out the level of pain you experience.

We carefully examine you​

We’ll check the muscles around your pain source as well as the painful area itself.

We start your treatment​

We start the best course of treatment for you.

Our treatment methods depend on what caused your lower back pain.

Pulled muscle or muscle spasm​

This is one of the quickest issues to heal and rehabilitate, and could just require some massage therapy, coupled with some stretching exercises to perform at  home.

Poor posture​

Poor posture when sitting, standing or lifting can cause stress to your spine. Treatment could involve massage or stretching.

Ligament sprains​

These could be treated with ice packs to reduce pain and swelling and some exercises to build up strength.
