Back injuries can happen when you do something new, different or strenuous, such as lifting heavy items or playing a new sport. The pain may also occur because of repeated stress on the back that gradually turns into an injury.

Common causes of back pain

  • Trauma (fall, car accident, lifting)
  • Muscle imbalances (postural issues)
  • Existing medical conditions
  • Osteoarthritis & rheumatological conditions
  • Cumulative stress such as the frequency of bending in life.

Our physiotherapists use a number of strategies to assess and treat spine and back pain including, clinical Pilates and core strengthening, McKenzie method, trigger point dry needling, DorsaVi analysis, mobilisation, and massage.
