Most people will suffer back pain at some stage of their life

There are many situations that can lead to back pain from accidents to bad posture, sudden movement or illness.

Back pain is very common and affects a wide variety of people of all ages.

Symptoms may include:

  • aching, stabbing and burning pain
  • stiffness
  • muscle spasms
  • lack of mobility
  • strong tension in the back
  • leg pain
  • numbness
  • tingling
  • buttock pain
  • weakness in the groin area

If left untreated, back pain can cause a cascade of health issues including sleepless nights, fatigue, inability to concentrate, depressed mood, and trouble completing normal duties at work.

Early intervention is important to avoid heightened pain that can become debilitating whilst also causing damage to other areas of the body as muscles try to compensate for the lack of mobility and protect the injured area.

Extra attention should be given when the symptoms of back pain are accompanied by fever, or increased pain when coughing, sneezing or bending forward.

It’s important to treat the source of back pain. Here’s the 5 best exercises for your low back pain.

As physiotherapists we have a number of non-invasive interventions we can use to help you recover from your back pain and improve your overall sense of wellbeing so that you can get back to normal and feel like yourself again.

The first step in any change is always the hardest. If you’re suffering from back pain, let us help you. To make a change and improve your quality of life, contact us.

Covid-19/Coronavirus update

 

With the Covid-19 / Coronavirus pandemic the world is facing an uncertain and challenging time. As your healthcare partner, we understand and share the concern and anxiety you may feel about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Bunbury, WA, Australia and globally.

At Aspire Physiotherapy Bunbury the health and wellbeing of our clients and staff is always our highest priority.

To ensure we can continue to offer the high-quality physiotherapy service our clients have become accustomed to, we are taking additional infection control measures to mitigate the risk of infection. The systems we have put in place are guided by the Australian Physiotherapy Association (our professional body) and the Department of Health, and will be monitored and updated accordingly as the pandemic evolves inline with their recommendations.

As a relatively small practice, the number of people we interact with is limited and considered low-volume. We have cancelled our group rehabilitation and pilates sessions and have spread out our appointment times to minimise the congregation of people and allow for our disinfection procedures between appointments. Clients have the option to wait in their car and be notified once the physiotherapist is available (simply phone us upon arrival).

As part of our infection control system we ask our clients to contact us by phone / email to reschedule their appointment if any of the following apply:

  • Symptoms including fever, flu-like symptoms such as coughing, sore throat and fatigue and/or shortness of breath.
  • Recent travel (within 14 days of the scheduled appointment). 
  • Been in contact with person with confirmed Coronavirus in the last 14 days.

Please be vigilant, and if unsure please contact us before attending your appointment.

Thank you for your trust and support as we continue to keep our focus on the health and wellbeing of you and your family.
