Lower back pain is a common and recurring issue affecting both older and younger individuals. Physiotherapy is an exceptionally effective solution in such cases. Why? We will explain it in detail later.
The lumbar spine is one of the five sections of the spine, consisting of 5 vertebrae. It is the most susceptible to strain. Let's start by identifying the source of this pain. This pain often results from prolonged strain on the muscles or other tissues that stabilize the spine. It can also be a result from more serious issues like disc damage or bone fractures. It often occurs in people who work in a seated position or those who avoid physical activity.
To learn more about anatomy of lumbar spine:
Lower back pain may spontaneously subside, but unfortunately, it is characterized by frequent recurrences. In some situations, patients experience pain radiating down the lower limb, a feeling of stiffness, and tingling.
Can physiotherapy help in such a situation? YES, YES, and yes again.
Medical guidelines recommend physiotherapy over pharmacological treatments. The most common exercises performed are core-strengthening exercises, targeting the muscles in the abdominal and spinal areas. Physiotherapists also introduce aerobic training, which enhances overall body fitness and contributes to pain reduction. For patients dealing with long-term pain, spine massages and laser therapies are recommended as effective methods to support the rehabilitation process.
After consulting with a physiotherapist, you may experience immediate relief in the lumbar region and throughout the spine. Regular physiotherapy sessions help establish healthy exercise habits that help prevent pain recurrences.
