Back Pain Diagnosis

The NHS estimate that 8 out of 10 people suffer back pain at some time. There are various types of back pain: 

Lower Back (Lumbar Spine)

Non- Specific Low Back Pain
Lower back pain is felt in the area between the bottom of the ribcage and the top of the legs. It’s the most common type of back pain. Symptoms range from tension and stiffness to pain and soreness. Non-specific low back pain includes most conditions affecting the facet joints of the spine, muscular spasm, aches and pain, muscular weakness and

General Exercise and painkillers are recommended for Non-specific Low Back Pain once the acute pain has settled a few days after the initial injury. When general exercise is not helping, a specific exercise programme designed by a physiotherapist can be more effective. And a Clinical Pilates programme can be an effective long-term solution to maintain good back health.

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy also includes other treatments that can reduce pain and speed up recovery including soft tissue therapy, joint mobilisations and electrotherapy.

Sciatica is pain caused by irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in your body, and runs from the back of your pelvis, through your buttocks and down both legs, ending at your feet.

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy including acupuncture and manual therapy can help to reduce pain and promote recovery of range of movement.

Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD)
This condition affects the disc that sits between the spinal bones. It occurs when the amount fluid in the disc is reduced, making the disc less supple than it used to be. Chemicals within the disc can be released and stimulate the nerve endings which send signals up to the brain that promotes a painful response in the back. Most forms of Degenerative Disc Disease are normal age-related changes and can be self-managed with a treatment programme.

Other physical treatments that can help pain from disc degeneration include Interferential Therapy and Laser Therapy.

In the case of back pain that doesn’t settle with conservative treatment, injections from a consultant spinal doctor can help in certain cases.

Slipped Disc / Discogenic Pain
Discogenic Pain occurs when the thick fluid-filled centre of the intervertebral disc presses out towards the back of the stiff, outer rings of the disc. Pain is present when chemicals from inflammation stimulate the nerve endings that pass up to the brain, producing a painful response in the lower back, and sometimes into the legs.

In severe cases, the disc can press on nerves that pass into the legs and may cause pain, pins and needles, numbness or weakness into the leg.

Physiotherapy, Pilates and Acupuncture can help to relieve pain, improve movement and regain function. 

c physio Thoracic Joint MobilisationsMid Back (Thoracic Spine) 

Upper and middle back pain (Thoracic Spine)
The upper and middle back is the section of the back between the base of the neck and the bottom of the ribcage. Pain in this area is less common than neck or lower back pain. Like many other types of back pain, upper and middle back pain can range from aching and stiffness to a sharp or burning sensation.
