Prompt physiotherapy assessment, diagnosis and treatment of low back pain will have you feeling and moving better more quickly. Back pain can also refer into the hip and leg. It is important to quickly determine the underlying cause to get fast relief. Once the underlying cause of the acute or chronic low back pain is determined treatment may include hands on manual therapy techniques, soft tissue releases, massage, taping, stretches, electrical stimulation, traction, core muscle strengthening, home exercises, and postural correction.

Self-management techniques such as advice on recommended exercises, positions, and postures at home and during work will not only help to more quickly resolve back pain but help prevent it from recurring again. Staying active is important and a gentle tailored exercise program which is gradually progressed will help you return to normal function as soon as possible.
