The lumbar region, or lower back, bears the full weight of the body and is thus subject to significant strain. This area may experience tension from continual pressure or muscle degeneration. Injuries to the lower back can result from damage to tendons or the stretching of ligaments.
Pain originating in the lower back, often referred to as lumbar pain, can extend to the legs, impeding normal movement. Initially, this discomfort may not seem overly concerning, but it has the potential to intensify over time. If not addressed promptly, the ongoing wear and tear on the lower back can escalate into severe and persistent pain, potentially becoming chronic.
Given the intricacies of the back and spine, engaging in activities like sports or heavy lifting can exacerbate the pain. Muscle spasms or sudden, sharp pains can significantly hinder an active lifestyle. Our osteopaths conduct a thorough analysis, incorporating results from various tests, to determine the appropriate treatment based on the severity of the symptoms.
Recognizing that alleviating lower back pain is paramount, our specialists offer low-impact exercises to help the muscles regain strength. The treatment focus extends beyond pain reduction to include building strength in the lumbar region, enabling the body to lead an active and fulfilling life. Dismissing lumbar pain can lead to substantial discomfort and compromise one’s quality of life. Our osteopaths are dedicated to helping you cultivate a robust back, ready to face the physical challenges that life presents.Book Osteopathy Appoinment
