How our specialist back physio Brisbane team can help

We have been been providing diagnosis and effective treatment for acute and chronic back pain in Brisbane for almost thirty years.

Lower back pain is probably the most common cause of patients to visit our Brisbane physiotherapy clinic, often the result of heavy lifting.

Pains and discomfort that we treat include sciatica pain, disc damage, tight muscles, regardless of whether symptoms have come on suddenly or you’ve been experiencing them for long periods of time.

Causes and impact of lower back pain

Our team of expert physiotherapists specialise in diagnosing all forms of acute and chronic lower back pain.

The root cause of back pain and discomfort is often disc damage caused by strain when lifting heavy objects with poor posture.

This can result in nerve tissue in the spine becoming irritated and putting pressure on the lower back. A further consequence can be severe leg pain, commonly known as sciatica.

Effective treatment to alleviate pain

In order to mange lower back problems and create a treatment plan, your physiotherapist will undertake an up to date detailed assessment of your condition.

We will look at lifestyle factors that might be affecting you, your posture, as well as any trauma that might potentially have damaged your spine or back (such as lifting heavy objects) and resulted in pulled muscles and soft tissue injuries, both of which are relatively common conditions.

In addition, we will explore how your pain manifests (e.g., as a dull ache, numbness, weakness in the leg muscles, etc.) and how it is impacting on your life.

Your back physio Brisbane specialist will also look at your range of movement, and propose an appropriate treatment plan for your recovery.

This can include massage, dry needling and exercises designed to provide relief, and restore your flexibility.

Varieties of back pain and pain relief

We work with each patient to help them manage lower back and spine problems by creating a treatment plan based on their particular symptoms, lifestyle and needs.

Chronic Back Pain

Chronic pain is very often the result of poor posture or being on your feet for long periods of time.

It can manifest at first as a dull ache, however over time this becomes a more severe form of lower back pain that can affect all parts of life, from sitting at a desk to lifting or reaching for everyday objects.

The treatment for chronic pain can include tailored treatments such as massage combined with strengthening exercises. We can also provide ergonomic advice for work or home to help prevent injuries form reoccurring.

Acute Back Pain

Acute back pain can come on very suddenly and result in severe, debilitating pain that can affect your ability to live your normal life.

It can be a manifestation of damage to the spine or discs, or poor posture combined with a lack of muscle strength.

The most effective treatment will usually involve a combination of therapies, such as joint mobilisation, dry needling, massage and exercises.
