At some point throughout our life most of us will experience back pain, which can be as a result of poor posture, muscle imbalance, injury or simply degeneration from inactivity or as we age.
Most people with back pain describe an ache across the low back which can radiate into the buttocks or legs. It often causes pain on bending forwards or backwards, and can lead to stiffness of movement. In some cases, you may experience pins and needles or numbness into the lower limbs.
An assessment of the back will include observing range of movement in the spine, testing muscles around the back and pelvis to check for weakness or tightness, and if appropriate, assessing the nerves of the lower limbs.
