Low back pain


If your back pain has lasted more than a few weeks, an exercise programme with a physiotherapist can provide relief and get you moving again. Manual therapies such as manipulation and mobilisation have been shown to be helpful too. The pain relief and improvement in functionality you get with physiotherapy can last long enough for you to start getting back to your normal activities. Keeping active is the best thing for back pain. It can get you back to work faster, you’re less likely to have long-term problems, and you’re less likely to get back pain again. 

It’s hard to get good evidence about how well specific exercises work for back pain. It’s not thought that one type of exercise is any better than another. Your physiotherapist will assess what they think will work best for you and your particular problem.
