Often times we are fearful of injury to bulging discs, pinched nerves, sciatic pain (sciatica) and other conditions such as arthritis seen on imaging (MRI, X-ray, CT scan etc)
Research shows that these types of damage seen on imaging (MRI, X-ray etc) do not match the level of pain and long term function of our lower back
At Active Care Physio we take a modern approach to low back pain.
We understand current research which demonstrates that even with structural changes seen on images we are not destined to be in pain.
With careful guidance, we have the potential to recover remarkably well from the majority of low back pain, aiming to avoid the need for lumbar spine surgery.
We help you to understand how low back pain processes are attempting to protect us.
We also encourage strength training within our clinical treatment sessions and for home use to improve function and restore quality of life for the long term
We use careful analysis and examination to identify patterns to diagnose your condition, and apply a combination of hands on and exercise treatments to help you reclaim your function
Physiotherapy guided exercise is available onsite in our Bondi Junction clinic to promote preventative strategies to assist you in establishing a base of strength allowing you to return to your active lifestyle with confidence. This supervised exercise can be conducted individually or in a group clinic
