Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain is the most common form of musculoskeletal pain. Every movement we make has an effect on our lower back as it is our centre of gravity. The main causes of lower back pain are heavy lifting, poor posture when sitting at a desk and poor technique during exercise whether you’re cycling , running or lifting weights. If lower back pain is not treated immediately, it may become chronic and can cause other debilitating injuries such as a disc herniation. In addition, lower back pain could lead to discomfort or pain in the hips, knees, ankles and feet.

Other reasons for hip, knee, ankle and foot pain are injuries such as ligament sprains, tendonitis, muscle strains, fascia inflammation and nerve impingemnts. These injuries are mostly caused from hiking and other sports such as soccer, snow boarding, cycling, running and weightlifting.

Shoulder Injuries

Injurying a shoulder can be extremely painful and debilitating. Men and women who lift weights tend to be the most common candidates. In addition to this sports such as golf, tennis, racketball, baseball and snow boarding can also cause shoulder injuries.

Other common reasons for shoulder pain is bad posture when using a computer, tablet or phone. If a shoulder injury is not treated, pain can move down the arm to the elbow, wrist and hand creating a repetitive strain injury (RSI).

RSI can be muscle, tendon and nerve pain. Typically, RSI results from overuse of the wrist, fingers and elbow when typing or using a mouse. This can effect your ability to work, play sport or compete as an athlete. Prevent this from happening by seeking treatment. Let our experts help alleviate your pain now.
