Spinal injuries and degenerative[ageing] changes
80% of the population will get a back issue.Most of these are minor and will, with Physiotherapy,recover in 1-4 weeks. All of us will have areas of our backs that wear out yet we may only get pain occasionally. This is due to postural issues whether standing or sitting,loss of core strength, losing general flexibility or just from unexpected demands. Renovating, moving house, lifting children, playing golf or tennis when unprepared, excessive gardening and long car drives are examples of things that can stir up or inflame old worn areas that normally behave well. Some advice, reassurance and treatment is all that’s needed.
