Lower Back Pain and Physiotherapy Singapore

For appointments/enquiries, please SMS/Call/WhatsApp xx

Lower Back pain can be aggravated and/or caused by problems at the discs, joints, muscles and ligaments or most commonly with a combination of those.

Most of the time, it is caused by the result of acute trauma/injury or poor postural habits and the accumulation of stress on the spine. On that note, there are other rarer and more serious causes of lower back pain that can result in progressive inflammatory processes that affects our bones and joints.

Lower Back Pain Symptoms

For most people, lower back pain is commonly experienced as a pain or discomfort located between the lower ribs and butt with or without the addition of leg pain. As I personally have experience and still have recurring low back pain/discomfort, I understand how it is =(

Symptoms range from muscle ache to shooting/sharp/stabbing pain, decreased movement/stiffness, difficulty walking and standing straight. If sciatica happens along with the back problem, nerve pressure is experienced as pain that radiates down the leg and possibly into the ankle or foot and often times patients can experience pins and needles and numbness too.

Acute low back pain usually lasts for a couple of days to weeks and is usually caused by trauma or arthritis. Lower back pain that persists for longer than 3 months is considered chronic.

Lower Back Pain Physiotherapy Treatments

As lower back pain is often multifactorial in nature, our Specialist Physiotherapists are highly experienced and trained to diagnose problems in the joints and soft tissues of the body.

They will carry out a comprehensive assessment and treatment plan to help successfully manage your particular back and neck problem.

Manual therapy such as spinal manipulation and mobilization as well as soft tissue techniques such as massage are often used to provide relief and manage symptoms and condition in the acute stage. You should also expect a simple customized home exercise program to help restore muscular strength and re-educate accurate movement patterns between physiotherapy sessions.

Your physiotherapist may advise other activities such as pilates or yoga to help with the long term care of your back.

Our Physiotherapists and Certified Acupuncturists may also help to relieve your back pain through the use of acupuncture or dry needling. For more information please see our pages on acupuncture or dry needling.

Our Expertise

Our Specialist Physiotherapists are carefully selected based on their clinical expertise, experience and passion in the treatment of back pain and back injuries. Lower back pain can be caused due to a number of different reasons so our Specialist Physiotherapists will assess your condition and find the most appropriate treatment for your pain.

Although many different structures  and factors can cause pain in the back such as the disc, ligament, muscles and nerve tissue our physiotherapist will endeavor to find the underlying reason why that structure was damaged in the first place, allowing you to address the root cause rather than just treat the symptoms.
