How can a physio help my low back pain?

A physiotherapist can help with low back pain in several ways:

  1. Pain management: A physiotherapist can use techniques such as manual therapy, acupuncture, or electrotherapy to help manage low back pain.
  2. Exercise therapy: A physiotherapist can design a customized exercise program to improve flexibility, strength, and endurance of the muscles in the back and core, which can help to reduce low back pain.
  3. Posture correction: A physiotherapist can help to correct poor posture, which can contribute to low back pain.
  4. Ergonomic advice: A physiotherapist can provide advice on proper ergonomics and body mechanics, including how to sit, stand, and lift objects in a way that reduces the risk of low back pain.
  5. Manual therapy: A physiotherapist can use techniques such as massage, mobilization, or manipulation to improve joint mobility and reduce muscle tension.
  6. Patient education: A physiotherapist can educate patients on how to manage low back pain, including advice on how to stay active, manage stress, and improve sleep quality.
  7. Overall, a physiotherapist can help to address the root causes of low back pain and provide patients with tools and techniques to manage their symptoms and prevent future flare-ups.
