According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, there are approximately 2.8 million Australians currently living with back pain and disc disorders. That’s a whopping 11.6% of the population… but it gets worse…
Over our lifetimes around 80% of us will have a significant or debilitating episode of back pain at some point!
Low back pain is typically a complex or multifactorial problem that has both mechanical and neurological elements and the evidence would suggest that we get the best treatment results when we address both. A hands on Osteopathic approach to Low Back Pain can do just that, with massage, mobilisation and manipulation of tight or tender tissues, we can work to quieten over-sensitive nerves and improve movement, in all the areas that contribute to your back pain.
This type of treatment can have a profound effect on the way your low back moves, feels and functions, but it can also provide a valuable window of opportunity for us to then focus on rehabilitation and recurrence prevention. Manual Osteopathic techniques are a simple and effective way to remove restrictions and allow better movement and a return to full function.
