BACK PAIN TREATMENTS
Are you suffering from back pain? You are not alone. It is one of the most common conditions where people seek medical care every year.
People often seek physio for back pain at our Burnaby Physiotherapy clinic.
Many patients have self-limiting episodes of acute back pain and do not seek medical care. Those who seek back pain treatment often report an improvement in symptoms in the first month (1). But, some may experience ongoing pain and disability. These patients will need more frequent treatments and attentive management. Addressing acute pain and dysfunction early prevents the development of chronic pain.
Using Eastern and Western techniques, our registered Physiotherapists in Burnaby can provide an effective back pain treatment strategy to speed up your recovery.
Causes For Back Pain

Your doctor will prescribe the necessary medications to manage your pain and discomfort. They may also recommend Physiotherapy treatments to help with your recovery and support your return to work
Another cause for upper back pain is poor conditioning of the postural muscles. When the muscles that keep your posture are weak and have poor endurance, it may fail. The stresses placed on the muscles and joints will be too much and pain will result.
Lower Back Pain
There are many different causes for lower back pain. Here are some of the common ones we see in our practice; they may occur on its own or in combination with the others:
