Back Pain & Injury Treatment

Back pain is a pervasive issue that can affect your ability to perform daily tasks, enjoy leisure activities, and even impact your mood and mental health. At Leap Physiotherapy, we are dedicated to understanding the specific causes of your back pain and providing targeted treatments to alleviate pain, restore function, and improve your overall quality of life.

UNDERSTANDING BACK PAIN:

Back pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including muscle or ligament strain, disc herniation, arthritis, poor posture, or an underlying health condition. Symptoms often include persistent aching or stiffness, sharp localized pain, radiating pain, or muscle spasms. Recognizing these symptoms early and seeking professional care is key to effective treatment.
