About Back Pain
At least 80% of people will suffer from back pain and/or sciatica at some point in their lives, with many of those being recurrent or chronic (long-lasting) problems.
Having back pain alone is challenging enough, especially if it involves stiffness, back spasms and difficulty moving or sleeping.
Often though, people also experience forms of sciatica alongside, which causes additional problems. These include pain down one leg, areas of numbness or pins and needles and loss of strength in the leg.
Several conditions can cause back pain and sciatica so getting to the root cause of yours is key.
Getting an accurate diagnosis is important in order to create a treatment program to successfully manage the condition and reduce pain.
As Physiotherapists, lower back pain is one of the most common things we see in our clinic, so we are well versed in the correct approach to treat any of your conditions.
Causes Of Back Pain
There are a number of problems that cause pain in the back which initiate from your neuro-musculoskeletal system.
- Stiffness in the small joints in your spine.
- Tension in the muscles in the back or bottom - usually from prolonged sitting and poor posture.
- Irritation of nerve pathways in the back which can cause pain in the buttock, leg or foot.
- Problems higher up your spine, e.g. in your neck or mid-back around the shoulder blades.
- Problems around your pelvis or hips.

- Issues in your legs which cause a back problem.
