Some statistics show that 80% of adults will experience lower back pain at some stage in their lives. It is one of the most common complaints our remedial massage therapists are treating in our Melbourne office.
The good news is lower back pain is something that can be prevented with some simple exercises, stretches and if necessary treatment.
Why Do I Have Lower Back Pain?
Acute lower back pain can result from a disk bulge, strained or sprained muscles and/or inflammation. You can also suffer lower back pain associated with systemic conditions such as fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis.
As the reasons for back pain vary from person to person, the cause of the pain is specific to you. Our remedial massage therapists are able to assess your pain and decide on the best course of treatment to reduce the symptom and show you stretches and exercises to minimise the chances of the pain recurring.
Our remedial massage therapists aim to not only assist you with the symptoms you are experiencing but also help you with self management and prevention techniques you can use at home. This usually includes a detailed assessment to determine risk factors such and muscle weakness, inflexibility, excessively tight or unstable joints and lifestyle factors.
