Lower Back Pain
Symptoms and Treatment of Lower Back Pain
Lower back pain will affect up to 80% of us at some stage in our lives, and takes up a lot of my daily work in my own physiotherapy practice.
Generally, treating lower back pain is quite straightforward in theory: it requires elimination of the cause, followed by strengthening exercises that reduce the risk of re-occurrence. However, in practice, each case has to be examined on an individual basis - correct initial diagnosis is key.
