Lower back pain can be debilitating, especially when left untreated. For so many of our clients, physiotherapy is one of the first protocols that are recommended for the treatment of lower back pain, and with good reason. The reason why most types of lower back pain are referred to physio as their primary line of treatment is because it includes guided therapeutic exercises. These exercises are intended to help strengthen your lower back muscles and to help condition the spinal tissue and joints.
These physio exercises are also designed to provide overall strength training and increase your flexibility. The key here is support and training for the entire kinetic chain, which includes body segment groups, muscles, and joints, all working together in order to perform various bodily movements. A lack of support and training can increase the risk of deterioration and, in extreme cases, physical disability.
