Is back pain affecting your quality of life, making daily tasks and common movements such as sitting, standing, and bending difficult?
Whether you’re suffering from pain in your upper back (thoracic spine), lower back (lumbar spine) or tailbone (Coccyx), back pain is actually a common condition that will affect 70-90% of people at some point in their lives.
Fortunately, most back pain can be treated with physiotherapy, education, back care strategies, and just the right back exercises.
Our experienced physiotherapists will accurately diagnose the cause of your back pain, provide relief from back pain with targeted back pain physiotherapy, address the issues that contribute to your back pain and equip you with strategies and exercises to avoid further back pain.
