How can physiotherapy help manage back pain?

If you see a physiotherapist quickly, this can not only speed up recovery but also prevent the problem happening again.

Physiotherapy can help you to reduce your pain, improve your flexibility and strength.

Physiotherapists use hands on physiotherapy treatments including; massage, mobilisation, manipulation, myofascial release, neural release, combined with stretching, core stability and strengthening exercises to help you get back to normal.

Physiotherapists can give you advice, exercises and treatment to reduce the risk of your symptoms returning again in the future.

Physios are the third largest health profession after doctors and nurses.

Getting a good nights sleep with back pain

It is better to lie on your side or your back. Lying on your front is not advised as you have to turn to breathe which then this twists your spine from the neck down.

If lying on your side use 2 pillows to fill the gap between your neck and shoulder to keep your head in a neutral position. Also a pillow between your knees can help to keep your spine level.

If you are lying on your back a pillow under your knees can help to take off the tension from your back too.
