Lumbar Pain


Expert Spinal Physiotherapy Melbourne

Low back pain (LBP) is one of the most common conditions that we treat here at Keilor Road Physiotherapy and it affects many individuals, with over 80% of the population having experienced an episode of LBP at some point in their lives. Fortunately, for most it is caused by musculoskeletal conditions and can be readily treated with great success, with the majority of those experiencing low back pain improving their symptoms within the first 6 weeks. Because it is so common and it’s understanding so poor, we’ve added a Blog post about it, ironing out some of the misconceptions associated with low back pain, ‘The Facts About Lower Back Pain’.
