Unfortunately regardless of age and gender, approximately 80% of the population will experience back pain at some point in their lives. Back pain can be caused by, but certainly not limited to:
Prior back injury
Long periods of sitting or standing
Ankle, foot, knee or hip problems…
And many more
The early signs you may have troubles with your back can include: stiffness upon waking in the morning, sharp sudden pain after lifting or moving, pain with specific movements (bending and twisting), pain that travels from your back into your legs (Sciatica) or a constant dull ache.
The practitioners at Equilibrium Sports and Spinal Clinic are highly trained to identify the main cause of your back pain and implement a safe and effective treatment programme – or refer when the issue is beyond their scope. Back pain left untreated may result in chronic issues for years to come. The quicker your problem is identified the quicker you can return to a healthy lifestyle equipped with the tools, knowledge and strategies to self manage your condition. Our staff use safe and gentle techniques when treating you.
