Understanding Back Pain
Experiencing back pain can be more than just a physical discomfort; it can affect your overall quality of life, your emotional well-being, and your ability to participate in everyday activities. Back pain is a common complaint among adults, often caused by injury like muscle/ligament strain, bulging discs, poor posture, chronic conditions such as scoliosis or kyphosis, or simply the stresses of daily life. Here at Curv, we want to reassure you: back pain may be common, but it’s not something you have to live with.
Our Approach to Back pain
At Curv, our approach to tackling back pain is comprehensive and patient-centered. Your journey with us begins with a thorough evaluation, where we listen to your history, understand your symptoms, and conduct a physical examination. This allows us to identify the cause of your pain and tailor a unique treatment plan to suit your needs.
Our treatment strategies might include:
Posture correction exercises: Poor posture is a common cause of back pain. We'll guide you through exercises that strengthen the muscles that support your spine, improving your posture and alleviating your discomfort.
Pain management strategies: We equip you with practical techniques to manage and reduce your pain levels.
Lifestyle advice: We help you make positive changes in your lifestyle that can prevent back pain. This can include advice on ergonomics, the right sleeping positions, maintaining a healthy weight, and incorporating regular physical activity into your life.
Therapeutic exercises: We'll introduce you to specific exercises, like the Schroth method, that strengthen and align your body, improving the condition of your back.
Manual therapy: As needed, our therapists will perform hands-on treatment to mobilise stiff joints, release muscle tension and reduce pain.
