A lower back pain is a condition of an acute or long-term pain in the lower portion of the back that may be of a prolonged mild ache or a sharp and severe ache. The condition is inevitably the most common problem that has been reported. The condition is generally caused by improper sitting and resting posture or by a pinched nerve, or an injury that results in muscle strain or joint dysfunction when direct loading of the spine takes place. The lower back pain is usually related to musculoskeletal issues, which are also called non-specific low back pain problems. The lower back pain is often followed by a mild pain in either of the two legs, which is referred to a condition of sciatica. The reported cause of this problem is a pinched nerve, which further causes nerve pain. A long-term lower back pain also causes spinal stenosis.

Aims of the Physiotherapy:

Lower Back Pain Physiotherapy we offer:
- Stretching and strengthening exercises- Some specially designed exercises are employed in order to gain back the flexibility of motion and relax the muscles. Except this, certain exercises are taught that are aimed towards the strengthening of the lower back muscles. These exercises should be performed in assistance of the physiotherapist and with proper cushioning support.
- Deep Tissue Massage Treatment- Deep tissue massage treatment is one of the most common treatments employed in which a deep and gentle massage is performed on the area of the pain. This relaxes the muscles and releases the tension between the tissues and in chronic muscles.
- Ultrasound Treatment- In this method, small sound impulses are injected deep into the strained muscles so as to increase the blood circulation and release the muscle tension. The increased flow of blood further oxygenates the tissues and reduces the pain.
- Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation: In this therapy a small electrical device is used, which sends electrical impulses down the skin through the affected muscles. These impulses tend to release the tension generated between the tissues and restore back the flexibility of the muscles.
- Hot and Cold Therapy: This uses the heat energy to relieve the pain and release the tension. In this technique alternation between hot and cold currents is used in order to relax the strained muscles by application of heat and reduce the pain and swelling by application of ice packs. This technique uses the advantage of an increased blood flow through the affected area.
