Back pain can be very disruptive to our lives. It is one of the leading causes of absenteeism from the workplace. Approximately 1 in 6 Australians will suffer back pain in a year. It may impact our ability to walk, sit, lay down, sleep, not to mention our ability to function optimally at work and at home.
Back Pain may be caused by insufficient strength in the spine due to impaired core strength, excess weight, poor posture, sitting for long periods of time, lack of physical activity, poor mobility, hereditary conditions or diseases, injury or inflammation due to a number of reasons including diet and stressors.
Medications and some treatments may provide a temporary relief whilst surgery is a drastic option. However a prescribed treatment program incorporating exercise, stretching and correct body mechanics, will help provide long term relief from pain, quickly improving your quality of life.
