Understanding Low Back Pain

Low back pain is a common symptom that often improves with simple measures such as staying active, basic exercises, and over-the-counter medication. While the causes of low back pain can sometimes be unclear, research shows that it typically resolves within a few days to a few weeks, and in a small number of cases even further. If pain does persist, there are many options available to provide relief and support. What we do know is that addressing factors such as disturbed sleep, low mood, and avoiding enjoyable activities or work is crucial, as these can all contribute to prolonging recovery.

While low back pain is rarely serious, seeking advice from a healthcare professional can be helpful if symptoms are highly bothersome or if you’re concerned about your recovery. Quality-assured advice from reputable sources, such as NHS websites, can provide valuable information.

If self-management strategies and pharmacy or GP-prescribed pain relief are not effective, seeking assistance from our team at AECC UC is a reasonable next step. Our team will conduct a thorough assessment, provide tailored advice, and develop a rehabilitation programme to help you achieve your goals. Whether you require 1:1 support, group sessions, scans, or gym-based exercises, we’re here to support you on your journey to recovery.

Common conditions

If you do need professional help we offer comprehensive care for a variety of conditions. Whether you’re dealing with acute lower back pain, sciatica, herniated discs, or muscle strains, we have the expertise and resources to help you on your journey to recovery.

Please find below some examples of conditions we see in clinic and some accompanying information:

Strains and sprains in the lower back often occur due to sudden movements, lifting heavy objects incorrectly, or overexertion during physical activities. These injuries can cause pain, stiffness, and limited mobility, making everyday tasks challenging. Our team specialises in treating strains and sprains with a combination of therapies and exercises tailored to promote healing and restore function. By addressing the root cause of your discomfort and providing supportive guidance, we’re here to help you recover and prevent future injuries.

Chronic low back pain is a persistent condition lasting for 12 weeks or longer, often resulting from injury, degenerative changes, or underlying health conditions. This ongoing discomfort can impact daily activities, mood, and overall quality of life. Our compassionate team understands the challenges of living with chronic pain and is dedicated to providing comprehensive care tailored to your individual needs. Through a combination of evidence-based therapies, lifestyle modifications, and educational support, we’re committed to helping you manage pain and regain control of your life.

Scoliosis is a condition characterised by an abnormal curvature of the spine. While mild cases may not cause significant symptoms, severe curvature can lead to pain, discomfort, and postural changes. Our knowledgeable team is experienced in managing scoliosis through a variety of treatments, including specialised exercises, manual therapies, and postural corrections. By addressing the unique needs of each patient, we aim to improve spinal alignment, reduce pain, and enhance overall well-being.

Lower back pain and sciatica is slightly different in that the sciatica involves a nerve as well as the joints and tissues in the back. This can result in symptoms such as shooting pain, numbness, or tingling sensations that radiate down the leg. Our team is well-equipped to address these issues effectively, and many of the measures used to help low back pain will also help sciatica. We offer a range of treatments tailored to alleviate sciatic symptoms and promote healing. From targeted therapies to rehabilitative exercises, our experienced professionals and student clinics can provide the support and expertise you need to find relief.

A herniated disc, or slipped disc occurs when the soft gel-like material inside the spinal disc protrudes outwards, often causing pressure on nearby nerves and resulting in pain, numbness, or weakness. This condition can be triggered by injury, ageing, or repetitive stress on the spine. Our experienced team offers specialised care for herniated discs, including targeted therapies, spinal decompression techniques, and rehabilitation exercises designed to alleviate symptoms and promote healing. With our comprehensive approach to treatment, we’re here to guide you on the path to recovery and improved spinal health.

Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the spinal canal, which can compress the spinal cord and nerves, leading to pain, numbness, and weakness in the back and legs. This narrowing can be caused by age-related changes, such as arthritis, or by structural abnormalities. Our dedicated team is experienced in diagnosing and managing spinal stenosis, offering a range of interventions to relieve symptoms and improve function. Through personalised treatment plans, patient education, and ongoing support, we’re committed to helping you live your life with greater comfort and mobility.
