Today, back pain is the single most common complaint made by patients to doctors. Estimates say 80 per cent of Australians suffer from back pain at some point in their lives.
Physical therapy has been identified as one of the best ways to both provide pain relief and prevent the common causes of back pain. It involves a range of different techniques including exercises, joint mobilisation, stretching, massage and dry needling.
It is also well known for improving posture and mobility as well as reducing reliance on pain relief and anti-inflammatory medication.
