In my work as a Chartered Physiotherapist one of the most common conditions I treat is low back pain.
Sometimes there is a history of injury leading to the onset of the pain but commonly the pain can come on quite suddenly with no obvious cause. The treatment of a patient’s back pain will depend on the severity of the symptoms and the root cause.
However in most cases I will recommend a programme of exercises to help the patient to recover from their symptoms and also to prevent further episodes of back pain. In the video below I demonstrate a typical exercise programme for someone suffering from low back pain.
