Back Pain Physiotherapy Treatment



Physiotherapy for back pain varies from patients to patients.

Statistically, 7 in 10 adults has had back and/or neck pain at some point in their lives...and of that 7 patients, 3 of them their back pain becomes chronic (long term).

Now, as every patient's back pain is unique to them and have varying/different causal/aggravation factors eg

  • some are caused by poor postural habits (hunching/slouch etc)
  • some are more pre-disposed to back pains
  • some are caused by accidents eg falls, sports, car accidents etc

some symptoms of back pain

Some of the symptoms of back pain includes one or more of the following symptoms:

  • painful back that can be throbbing, sharp, shooting etc
  • joints and muscles stiffness
  • the back pain may travel up or down the body
  • difficulty moving from resting state eg sit to stand or lying down to sit/stand
  • the back may also become more stiff to guard/protect the back
  • and more

back pain physiotherapy

Physiotherapy for back pain usually starts with a combination of gentle heat treatment to first decrease pain experienced as well as to loosen the stiff joints, muscles and back. This too will decrease the risk of pain during the session.

Once the muscles and joints are warmed up, we will perform some mild gentle soft tissue mobilization to glide the soft tissues that may have become rigid, before working on the deeper structures and joints to increase the range of motion (ROM), this will further decrease pain and improve movement without pain.

Then we will get you to participle in gentle and active range of motion (AROM) so that your body and affected joints get accustomed to movement and it sustains the range and movement.

We may also use modalities such as INDIBA and/or ultrasound to accelerate the healing of the soft tissues of the back and around it.

follow up physiotherapy for back pain

Usually it's the early stage (acute stage) of the back pain that is very intense and sharp pain, as our senior spine physiotherapists treat you, the pain will lessen and we will start to focus on strengthening and exercise physiotherapy to strengthen the affected weakened muscles.

As back pain decreases, then we need to strengthen the back and front muscles, to form a natural protective girdle around the back - this will help to prevent recurrence of the back pain.
