Four out of five of us will experience back pain at some stage in our lives - and anyone who has knows just what a pain it is. So what can you do about it? Physiotherapist Tony Ashcroft says if you have persistent back pain you need it checked so an accurate diagnosis can be made and a treatment plan devised. In most cases, your first port of call may be your GP or physiotherapist. Depending on the problem, they may also work in with one of a number of other healthcare providers. You can attend physio- therapy without a referral. The physiotherapist usually works by design- ing a series of physical exercises and/or using techniques such as manipulation, mobilis- ation, massage and stretching to aid their patients. Part of the treatment plan may include suggestions to prevent injuries from recurring as well as looking at ways to move so the injury is not worsened. Tony says one of the most important ways to treat back pain is to make sure you stay active - but it's crucial to ensure the exercise you're doing suits you and your condition. Acupuncture can also be a useful adjunct to a back pain treatment plan. Other kinds of treatment include: Osteopathy which aims to strength the body's musculoskeletal system and, by doing so improve the body's ner- vous, circulatory and lymphatic systems. It uses a range of man- ual techniques such as soft tissue stretching, deep tactile pressure and mobilisation or manipu- lation of joints. Osteopa- thy is based on the belief that if one area of the body is restricted, this will affect the rest of the body causing pain, infla- mmation and other health conditions. Chiropractic treat- ments also involve man- ual therapies, including spinal manipulation, and focuses on how the relationship between your spine and nervous system impacts on your body and health. If your back pain is caused by a condition that needs surgery, your treatment provider will most likely refer you to an orthopaedic surgeon for specialist treatment. In the majority of cases lower back pain can be managed conservatively.
