At Vitalis Physiotherapy, we specialise in back pain treatment and target issues with:
The term back pain refers to any pain felt in the lower or upper back. The causes can be numerous and are sometimes difficult to pinpoint since the ache can gradually develop over time only to culminate in unbearable pain and limited movement. Vitalis Physiotherapy takes a strategic approach to back pain treatment and we tailor the healing process based on the specifics of your case.
Some of the conditions that are most commonly associated with back pain include muscle or ligament strain, arthritis, osteoporosis, and bulging or ruptured disks.
However, back pain can also occur as a consequence of poor posture while standing or sitting, after a physical strain or difficult exercise, uncomfortable sleeping position, etc. In such cases, the pain develops slowly over time and is as such quite difficult to determine precisely.
Lower back pain has not been without reason categorised among the new-age diseases. In addition to injuries, fractures, spine cancer, and muscle strains, lower back pain can be caused by a ruptured or herniated disk and sciatica, both which may happen as a result of a sedentary lifestyle. What also contributes to lower back pain is genetics, spinal stenosis, and spine curvatures.
To determine with greater certainty the cause of the problem and be able to design a proper lower back treatment, we perform a detailed examination and propose an X-ray or MRI scan.
Upper and middle back pain can appear after a muscle strain and overuse, ligament injury, disc rupture, or because of the poor posture in general. If the pain worsens or turns into chronic, we advise you to contact us. The best upper back pain treatment involves exercises designed to relieve from pain and resting.
You should not worry every time you experience pain in your back. Nonetheless, you might require chronic back pain treatment if the pain and discomfort:
- Persist for more than 6 weeks
- Keep getting worse
- Are so severe that you are unable to perform everyday activities
You should also refer to a professional if the back pain is accompanied by high fever, weight loss, numbness or tingling in the legs, or any other more serious symptom. In case you are unsure whether what you are experiencing should worry you, feel free to get in touch with Vitalis Physiotherapy and consult with our back pain specialist in Brisbane.
