Back Pain

Back pain is the most costly medical problem in Australia. It is estimated that 70-90% people having back pain at some point in their life. With medical treatment and time off work, it can be a huge burden on society.

On a personal level, it can limit your quality of life, disrupt your daily living, cause relationship breakdowns, and the inability to go to work.

Back pain can start from an incident such as heavy lifting or more often, for no apparent reason at all. It is therefore essential that you seek the appropriate treatment so that it will have minimal impact on your life.

Treatment has come along way with ongoing research particularly in the prevention and evidence based practice.
