Spinal Pain Physiotherapy
Up to 6 out of 10 adults suffer from spinal pain each and every year (spine pain includes neck pains and/or back pains)...and worse still is that out of these 6 adults, 50% of them, their spine pain became long term (chronic pain).
That basically means: 30% of adults have long term back pain or neck pain.
It is both shocking and not shocking, because it has unfortunately become a norm. So spine and back pain can be caused by a variety of reasons or issues, be it due to:
- back and neck discs
- back and neck joints
- back and neck muscles
- back and neck ligaments
...but most of the time it's usually directly linked to
- trauma such as falls, direct blows/hits or motor vehicle accidents
- poor posture / poor postural habits
- repetitive strain injury
Of course, there are other causes of spine pain too, such as
inflammation or sometimes rare but serious medical conditions such as
- arthritis (like juvenile arthritis, spondylosis etc)
- other progressive diseases that can affects bones, muscles and joints of the spine
Spinal Pain Physiotherapy
Back and neck problems can cause sciatica
which basically means that the spine nerve is being compressed somewhere along the spine, and this leads to
Sciatica can be
triggered even by very small "unsuspecting normal everyday activities or movements" such as leaning forward to pick up your toothbrush or bag.
also be caused by a stretch injury. And yes, in some cases, sciatica may happen due to a muscle strangling it (see Piriformis Sciatica) or even
for no obvious reason at all (no obvious reason can mean no real memorable memory of an event that can link to it, but there may be something that happened some time back that we cannot recall).
It usually affects one side of the leg/hamstrings, and patients often report experiencing:
that travels (radiates) down the back of their thigh and sometimes to the front of their shin too.

Spinal Pain Physiotherapy Symptoms

- relieve spinal nerve root compression caused by slipped disc
- treat secondary conditions caused by compression of the sciatic nerve
Other than treating the symptoms of pain, discomfort and nerve symptoms (such as radiating sensation/tingling), we will do our best to ensure that we go through with our patients specific customized and
effective back exercises to strengthen their core and back muscles to build better stable supporting muscles.

most important thing for patients to note is that spine problems can be

If you find that you have any back or neck pain, be it recently or have been experiencing it for some time already; or know someone who does, do consider seeing our specialist spine physiotherapist. You may even prevent the need for back or neck surgery by early spinal physiotherapy intervention.
Do not hesitate or wait for it to go away - pain is a normal response by our bodies to signal to us that there is some issues to resolve, and the earlier it's resolved, the faster it'd be resolved. When/if one delays on it, it may become worsen/progress into something more serious that may take much more time to resolve.
