Best Physiotherapy for Chronic Lower Back Pain – Causes – Symptoms & Therapy
According to a survey, 85 percent of working people will have back pain at some point in their lives, Low back pain is a common musculoskeletal symptom that may be either acute or chronic. It may be caused by a variety of diseases and disorders that affect the lumbar spine. Low back pain is commonly accompanied by sciatica, which is pain that involves the sciatic nerve and is felt in the lower back, the buttocks, and the backs of the thighs.
Common Causes of Lower Back Pain
- Back pain can be caused by a wide range of factors. Even seemingly insignificant movements can result in severe agony.
- Muscle/ligament strain, disc herniations, and osteoarthritis are all common causes of back discomfort.
- A muscle or ligament strain is by far the most prevalent injury in younger people. Lifting a big object, lifting an object incorrectly, a rapid twist, or another sudden movement are all common causes of strain.
- Microtears in the muscle or ligament can occur as a result of these activities, and these tears can be painful.
- Injuries like these are prevalent in sports.
- A herniated disc in the spine is a common cause of chronic back pain. Whether it’s from a car accident or bending over to tie your shoes, many factors, including degenerative disc disease, accumulate over time until an event or action causes the vulnerable disc to herniate and cause discomfort.
- Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disorder that is one of the most common causes of chronic back pain in middle-aged and older persons. Osteoarthritis is caused by the slow disintegration of articular cartilage, which is the protective coating that covers the ends of all bones.
Symptoms of Chronic Lower Back Pain
- When handled or physically manipulated, the region becomes tender.
- Achy, throbbing chronic pain that comes and goes in waves of varying degrees of severity.
- Back flexibility has improved significantly. Bending in any direction can be unpleasant and stiffen the body over time.
- Tightness and discomfort in the lower back muscles on both sides
- Pain that is more obvious in the morning and evening, but seems to improve during the day.
- Pain and stiffness are noticeable while shifting from sitting to standing, and when standing for an extended period.
- Walking is more comfortable, but running can be painful.
- Osteoarthritis changes can irritate nearby nerves, resulting in neuropathic pain (nerve pain). Neuropathic pain can radiate into the buttocks, leg, and foot, and it can be throbbing, searing, or achy, and it can come in waves of varying severity.

Our physiotherapists begin by performing a thorough examination of your complaints.

We also perform a thorough movement examination of your spine, focusing on the trouble areas. We also look at other body systems throughout this assessment to make sure they aren’t contributing to the pain.
