We can help with these types of back pain

Common types of back pain

Many people experience lower back pain (LBP), which can be brought on by bad posture, an injury, or an illness.

Chronic low back pain can be effectively managed and treated with physiotherapy, athletic therapy, and massage.

It can ease back pain and stiffness, as well as improve mobility and range of motion.

In Victoria, you may find some of the top physiotherapists, massage therapists, and athletic therapists for lower back discomfort. These specialists are skilled at determining the source of the pain and how to treat it.

Physiotherapy helps reduce inflammation, improves blood flow to the area, eases muscle spasms, makes muscles around the spine more flexible, and strengthens weak muscles.

It also teaches patients proper posture to avoid future episodes of back pain.

Chronic Back Pain

Are you unsure where your chronic back pain came from? We can help release the tension that’s on your back, give you relief with your tight hips, and allow you to do things that your back is holding you from


Sciatica is a term that describes symptoms of pain, numbness, and/or weakness that radiate along the sciatic nerve from the lower back to the buttocks and leg. The medical term for sciatica is lumbar radiculopathy.

Sprains and Strains

Low back muscle strains and sprains are a common causes of low back pain. While not serious in nature, they can cause terrible pain and fear of moving. The QLis the most common muscle that is irritated for this, it’s typically felt on either side of the spine, one side or both

Disc Bulges and Herniations

A herniated disc (also called bulged, slipped or ruptured – PS it’s a terrible name and not accurate) is a portion of the inside of the disc is pushed out of the annulus, into the spinal canal through a tear or rupture in the annulus


Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis and Ankylosing spondylitis seem to be the most common types of Arthritis that we see in our clinic

Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disk disease, or DDD, occurs when regular changes in your spinal disks start to “wear down”. Spinal disks are your shock absorbers, the jelly donuts if you will, between the bones of your spine. As we get older, they start to show signs of wear and tear and this may or may not cause pain.

Our Athletic Therapist Can Help You With

Lower back pain is a common complaint among many people, affecting their ability to perform everyday activities.

The right physiotherapy can be incredibly beneficial in relieving lower back pain and helping individuals return to their normal life. Victoria is home to some of the best physiotherapists specializing in treating lower back pain.

In this article, we will provide an overview of the causes and treatments available for those suffering from lower back pain in Victoria.

This can be from “poor” posture, “poor” core control, or the “tight” muscles. While you’ve probably heard “poor posture is the cause of your back pain”, we don’t fully believe this to be true. The Strains and sprains to the joint mostly occur when we engage in tasks that our body is not used to, or in an accident. Bending down and twisting, reaching for a sock, or stretching past your limit are common causes of strains and sprains on your back. Though, not dangerous in nature, they can be extremely painful.

Our gut bacteria play a large role in our overall health – cardiovascular, mental health, and even pain. A study in 2019, found for the first time that gut bacteria is associated with chronic pain. There’s also research showing that back pain symptoms may be reduced by antibiotics. This isn’t something we suggest but the evidence is starting to mount for bacteria.

Everything is connected and we’re still learning “how” but we know that it plays a role – sometimes small, sometimes big. Constipation, IBS, and bloating have been found to be contributors to back pain. When you are experiencing stress in one of your digestive organs, that organ will send a message back to the spinal cord via the same nerve that goes to a corresponding muscle. As a result, the corresponding muscle will become tense, contracted and painful. A massage or chiropractor adjustment may be why you feel good after a few days but your pain eventually comes back. Without working on that organ, that pain will eventually come back.

Anxiety, depression, stress sensitivity, and sleep problems affect people of all incomes equally, increasing their risk of developing back pain. This doesn’t mean your pain is “in your head” – because it’s definitely real. It means that if you only address the structures without address elsewhere, you’ll never find the full relief that you’re looking for.

Atherosclerosis and high cholesterol have been associated with low back pain, commonly degenerative disc disease, lumbar pain, and sciatica. Arthritis can also be a contributor to back pain. Most inflammatory back pain is can be caused by certain autoimmune conditions. An autoimmune condition can occur when the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks healthy body tissue. Most known are ankylosing spondylitis or psoriatic arthritis. Even Thyroid conditions are associated with back pain
