How can physiotherapy help with back pain?

Back pain is one of the most common complaints that people have and it can be caused by a variety of things. Physiotherapy can help relieve back pain by improving strength, flexibility and range of motion. Massage can also help relax the muscles and relieve tension in the back. Surgery is sometimes necessary for more severe cases of back pain. If surgery is necessary, your back pain physio will be helping you recover from the surgery in a safe and fast way.

The back pain physiotherapist will use some of the following during their session for a successful outcome:

  • Back muscle strengthening: The goal of back-strengthening exercises is to help muscles support the spine better and resist tension, which can help relieve back and neck pain. Most back-strengthening exercises target the core muscles, including the abs, glutes and hip muscles, in addition to the muscles of the spine. All core muscles are necessary to reduce stress on the spine and provide support.
  • Back muscle stretching: Stretching is a simple yet effective way to reduce muscle tensions and reduce discomfort. Stretching targeting the hamstrings, pelvis and hip flexors will reduce your lower back pain. Stretching targeting, trapezes, neck, back muscle and shoulders will reduce the pain in your upper back.  A good back stretching session can bring significant relief to many low back pain sufferers.
  • Range of motion and flexibility of your back: As every other joint in your body, it is really important to work on the flexibility and range of motion of your spine. If your spine as a good range of motion and is flexible, you will have less chance to develop back pain and you will be able to move more freely. That is why a big part of your back rehabilitation with your physio will be to regain movement and range of motion.
  • Reducing the pain in your back: Your physiotherapist will advise you to use either a hot pack or a cold pack on painful the area of the back for 20 to 30 mins. The use of hot or cold depends of the type of back pain. Generally, if your back pain is due to inflammation, the use of cold will be advised – if your back pain is due to muscle contractions, the use of hot will be advised.
