How You Should Treat Constant Back Pain:

If you have experienced back pain before, you would understand the pulsating pain that would follow along, the pain could be so sudden and unexpected, it will be there ready for your every movement. As you grow older the likelihood of suffering from back pain becomes more common, sometimes it would make you feel a lot older than you are. Nevertheless, this can indicate the rising intensity caused by added pressure which may bring awareness to the pain emitting from your back. As a result, we highly recommend, you consult with a physiotherapist at PhysioFirst to determine the severity of your back pain. 

First of all, what is back pain?

Back pain can be identified within a broad spectrum based around people’s experiences; it may be different for you in comparison to others. After all, your back is the supporting structure of the human body with muscles, bones, and nerves all in place with specific roles to support freedom of movement. It has been testified that 1 in 6 Australians have endured the commonality of back pain. If there are any complications within the structure of your back, even if it’s to the smallest degree, the impact and pain would be definite. 

Once you have suffered from back pain, what is noticeable is not just the physical pain but what is often underappreciated or overlooked is the mental impact. You may be feeling agitated or even frustrated by the mental toll caused by the pain. It may lead to others worrying if the back pain is influencing your recent behaviour and conduct. 

Despite back pain resulting from varied symptoms, the causes can be quite similar depending on the severity of the back pain, for instance:

  • Strained back muscles: resulting from heavy physical activities.

  • Weak & unbalanced posture: resulting from little stretching and slouched sitting positions.

  • Not enough physical exercise: resulting to a rigid back made up of stiffness and little flexibility.

Treatment for Back Pain:

The feeling of back pain can be challenging to go through as it has become a most common experience. An informative dialogue with our physiotherapists can help deal with any difficulties pertaining to treatment.

Here are some recommended suggestions that might help:

  • Physical back pain exercises: Your body was always meant to move, turn, flow, and power through to your heart’s content. Any kind of stretching or exercising guided by our certified physiotherapists can lead to an alleviation of stiffness and better mobility.

  • Avoid awkward positions for long durations: Hunched positions can be quite comfortable as we all do it at some point. Although it does have its pitfalls: Not only does it cause bad posture, but it creates stress and pressure on your back muscles.

  • Change the way you sleep: It’s obvious, sleep has a million benefits that keeps the mind and body healthy. However, your sleeping position can equate to your eventual back pain, depending on the way you sleep. Integrating good sleeping habits into your normal routine can slowly relieve the tension in your back.

  • Stay away from lifting: Carrying heavy objects can put constant strain on your back and lead to further strife if you don’t rest. As an alternative, utilize your legs to move objects.
