Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain is very common; more than 7.5 million working days are lost in the UK alone due to low back pain and is the second highest cause of long-term sickness after stress. However the most shocking statistic is that it is mainly self-induced – caused by poor posture and lifting techniques and lack of understanding of how to look after your back.

What can Petersfield Physio do to help Lower Back Pain?

Education is a big part of our treatment plan with advice on correct sitting positions and lifting techniques. Acupuncture can be very effective in relieving pain and muscle spasm. Mobilisations, massage techniques and specific mobilising, core strengthening and postural exercises such as Pilates can all help to restore full movement and function.
