Conquer Lower Back Pain: How Braybrook Physio & Allied Health Clinic Can Help You Move Freely Again

Lower back pain, a nagging companion to millions, can significantly impact your life. At Braybrook Physio & Allied Health Clinic, we understand the toll it takes on your daily activities and wellbeing. But here’s the good news: you don’t have to suffer in silence. With physiotherapy, you can find lasting relief and rediscover the joy of pain-free movement.

Understanding the Source of Your Pain

Several factors can trigger lower back pain, categorised into two main groups:

Mechanical/Structural Issues

Strains and sprains: Overexertion, improper lifting, or twisting movements can injure muscles, ligaments, or tendons surrounding the spine.
Degenerative disc disease: Age-related wear and tear lead to disc breakdown, impacting spinal stability and causing pain.
Herniated discs: Bulging discs compressing nerves are a common source of sharp, radiating pain.
Spondylolisthesis: Misalignment of spinal vertebrae can contribute to pain and discomfort.
Spinal stenosis: Narrowing of the spinal canal puts pressure on nerves, leading to weakness, numbness, and pain.
Other: Fractures, scoliosis, myofascial pain, and osteoporosis can also play a role.

 

Inflammatory Conditions

Ankylosing spondylitis: Chronic inflammation of the spine can cause stiffness, pain, and even fusion of spinal joints.
Other inflammatory arthritis: Conditions like rheumatoid arthritis can affect the spine, leading to pain and dysfunction.
