Are you looking for relief from back pain?

Is back pain preventing you from doing what you want? Have you ever slept poorly because of back pain or straining your back while moving something heavy? Perhaps you hurt your back while playing a sport. Whatever the case may be, you do not have to suffer from back pain. Back pain relief can be found at Vigor Physiotherapy.

Numerous factors could be causing your back pain, but no matter what the cause is, our physical therapists at Vigor Physiotherapy can help you get the back pain relief you’ve been looking for!

What caused my back pain?

There are several causes of back pain, and determining the underlying cause can be difficult. Fortunately, our highly trained physical therapist can assist you in determining all of the factors causing your condition and developing a comprehensive plan to address them all!

Our physical therapists at Vigor Physiotherapy treat all types of back pain. We employ research-backed strategies that have been shown to produce long-term results.

Poor Posture and Prolonged Positions:
Our spines are built to move. Poor posture/prolonged positions are one of the most common causes of back pain. Our modern society is much more sedentary than previous generations, and the prevalence of back pain is increasing. Back pain from poor posture is frequently associated with prolonged activities such as sitting and standing. Maintaining a posture can irritate the tissues in your body, resulting in pain, dysfunction, and, in the long run, inflammation or injury.

Sprain/Strain:
A back sprain occurs when the ligaments in your spine are overstretched, whereas a back strain occurs when your back muscles are overstretched. These injuries are frequently associated with a lifting injury or an accident (i.e., motor vehicle accident, slip, or fall).

Bulging or Herniated Discs.
Discs are specialized tissues that connect two vertebrae (i.e., spine bones). The discs help direct the movement of our spines, absorb forces, and protect the bones from injury. Bending and twisting movements are particularly dangerous to the discs, especially when lifting in these positions. The disc is also vulnerable to prolonged sitting or awkward task postures. Injury to the discs can cause severe back pain and lead to a more serious condition known as radiculopathy (nerve pain) in your thigh, leg, or foot (aka sciatica). The good news is that physical therapy at our Vigor Physiotherapy clinic can help you if you are suffering from back pain caused by disc problems.

Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD)
Another common cause of back pain is degenerative disc disease, which is most commonly associated with ageing. Degenerative changes can also be caused by smoking, certain medications, and injury. Pain from degenerative disc disease frequently manifests as changes in mobility and is commonly felt when initiating movement after a prolonged position (i.e., sitting, standing, or lying). People frequently describe a dull, painful ache in the lower back that worsens with prolonged standing or walking. Whatever the cause of your back pain, our Vigor Physiotherapy physical therapists can help you get to the bottom of it and, more importantly, give you the tools you need to get rid of it!
