Back Pain Management

Back Pain is extremely comm​on -

about four in five people are affected at some point in their lifetime.

It is often very difficult to know exactly what causes back pain, but its usually thought to be related to a strain in one of the interconnecting structures of the back. Back pain caused by a more serious underlying condition is rare but if you have any concerns you should consult your doctor.

If you have low back pain you may have tension, soreness or stiffness in your lower back area. This pain is often referred to as non-specific back pain.

For most people with back pain, there isn't any specific underlying problem or condition that can be identified as the cause of pain. However there are a number of factors that can increase your risk of developing back pain or aggravate it once you have it.

These include:

  • Standing, sitting or bending down for long periods.
  • Lifting, carrying, pushing or pulling too heavy loads
  • Having a trip or a fall
  • Being stressed or anxious
  • Being overweight
  • Having poor posture

If your back pain is non-specific there are a number of things you can do to help relieve low back pain. One of the most important is to stay active and continue your daily activities as normally as you can.

Bed rest may actually make low pain worse
