Common Causes Of Back Pain

back pain west rydeThe Australian Institute of Health and Welfare estimates that 1 in 6 Australians suffered from back problems in 2017-18. That’s more than 3 million people.

Back pain can have a significant impact on day-to-day life. It can stop you from doing the things you want to do, like exercise and recreation. And it can affect your family life too. Not just because you’re less mobile and can’t, say, pick up your children, but also because of the more subtle effects. Living with pain can affect your mood. It can make you less tolerant of others. Things you may have thought amusing before back pain may be less funny now. And those around you, especially your children, may not understand what’s changed.

Your back is a complex structure made of 33 vertebrae and 23 discs, held together by ligaments and connected to many muscles. Together, they provide support to your body and protection for your spinal cord. When you consider the sheer number of working parts and connections, it’s easy to understand why back pain is so common.

The causes of back pain vary significantly. It can occur as a result of posture or injury but also be caused by disease. And the chance of suffering from it increases as you age, if you’re overweight or if you smoke.

If you are suffering from back pain, you should consider a visit to a physiotherapist. Physiotherapists have an in-depth knowledge of anatomy and will always look to find the root cause of a problem rather than just treat the symptoms.

A physio at Northern Districts Physiotherapy & Sports Clinic in West Ryde can treat back pain as well as a range of other disorders. Their focus will be on your whole body, not just your back. Once they’ve made a full medical assessment to identify the root cause of the problem, they will use a number of hands-on methods—and their gentle approach makes it suitable for a wide range of people and conditions.
