Treatment of Back Pain, Bondi Junction

80% of our population are affected by back pain at some stage of their lives. The pain can interfere with work and lifestyle and result in reduced general activity.

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

Many structures can be responsible:

  • Joints
  • Discs
  • Ligaments
  • Muscle spasm
  • Core muscle weakness
  • Brain responses & Thought processes

We can enhance your recovery by:

  • Carefully analysing & explaining your back injury to you
  • We construct a pathway for restoring confident use of your back
  • Helping you understand the relevance of imaging findings and your potential for good recovery even with structural changes seen on imaging
  • Guiding you with strategies to relieve irritation of tissue such as pinched nerves
  • Using hands on techniques including stretching, massage and mobilisation to improve your spine mobility & to reduce pain
  • Measuring strength of your spinal muscles and teaching methods of effective exercise to increase support and restore confidence in loading your lower back again
