Low back pain affects 70%-90% of people in Australia

It has been estimated that low back pain affects 70% – 90% of people in Australia, during their lifetime. As there are a wide variety of reasons as to why pain in the lower back occurs.

At Core Physio we prioritise education and empowering people to be in charge of their own health, and looking after your back is part of that.
We love to see you at our clinics, but are equally thrilled when people use the skills we have shown them to self treat, and self manage where they can.

The McKenzie Method

The McKenzie Method is the basis of our philosophy of treatment for back and neck pain. You can read more about the McKenzie Method here: 

What Is The McKenzie Method?

We would love to help you understand the mechanisms for your injury, and how to treat and prevent it yourself. Remember- it’s your back- It needs to last you a good while, and there’s a lot you can do yourself with the right education, self-treatment and guidance.

Don't Ignore A Sudden Onset Of Pain

When pain is felt in the buttock or leg that originates in the back we call this referred pain.
It is also often called sciatica.
When a back injury or pain occurs, it is most common for the pain to be initially felt in the centre of the back, or generally in the lumbar area.

If the pressure is not relieved at this time, from resting or relieving pressure on the stressed structures is often when we see a progression of pain to one side of the back and down into the buttock and leg.

Hot tip: if you have a sudden onset of back pain don’t just ignore it! – because it can get worse.

Pain referred from the lumbar spine can be referred as far as the toes due to pressure on nerves that run adjacent to the spine and discs.

As Physiotherapists it’s interesting that most of the lower back pain we see doesn’t seem to come from strenuous causes, in fact, most of the back pain we see can be attributed to sedentary lifestyles, prolonged sitting with poor posture – like lots of driving, or often a long period of sitting followed immediately by lifting- the classic is sitting driving for hours then lifting a heavy case out of the car boot.

Frequent and repetitive bending or lifting can also be causative.

If you have any of these conditions our Physios at Core Physio and Pilates can help:

  • Sciatica
  • Arthritic pain or aching in the hips or buttocks,shoulders or arms
  • Pain that starts in the back or neck and seems to spread to the buttocks
  • Intermittent pins and needles or numbness in the feet
  • Aching pain into the leg
