Lumbar Spine and SIJ
Prolapsed intervertebral disc, degenerative disc disease and Sacroiliac joint dysfunction.
Lower back pain is experienced by 9 out of 10 people at any point in their lives. Pain can arise from the spinal joints, the discs between the vertebrae, irritation of the nerves or due to muscle spasm. In severe cases pain can spread into the leg. Some of the more common diagnoses include prolapsed disc (bulging disc), degenerative spinal disease (wear and tear of the spinal discs and joints) and sacroiliac joint dysfunction (strain on the sacroiliac joint). Treatment of back pain includes manual therapy (hands on techniques), postural changes, specific exercises, acupuncture and life style changes. Injection therapy and surgery are other options.
