Back pain is a common problem that most people will experience throughout their lifespan, it’s one of the most common reasons for people to visit a health professional.

Back pain can start as a niggle that builds over time or it can develop suddenly. Some people may experience variations of improvement but often it can resurface and develop with more persistent pain.

Back pain can be localised in one area or broad enough to involve nearby joint structures and muscles. Often more than one area of the body can be involved in people’s presentation of back pain ie. posture changes/compensations due to pain.
