Back and neck pain are the most common conditions that are seen at Limp in Leap out Physiotherapy in Belfield.
The lower back supports the weight of the upper body and provides support for everyday activities. Much of the injuries to the lower back can occur due an problems associated with joints, muscles or nerve (for more information on nerve injuries see Nerve Injuries). Being a complex and well-designed structure, it leaves the lower back susceptible to injury and pain.
Common reasons for lower back pain include
Bending to pick up an object from the floor with straight knees and a bent back
Twisting your body to place an object beside you while standing
Prolonged sitting with no change in position
Prolonged standing in the same position
Lack of deep muscle activation in the lower back
Lack of abdominal / core strength
The neck supports the weight of the head. When the weight of the head has been measured close to 30 kgs, this can be straining on the surrounding structures. Like the lower back, you can feel a dull achy pain, muscle spasms, tightness, difficulty actively moving your neck or back, and difficulty holding positions for an extended period.
Treatment for the lower back can include joint mobilisations, soft tissue therapy, traction therapy, nerve gliding, deep muscle strengthening and more.
