Nestled in the vibrant 38 Irrawaddy Road neighborhood of Singapore, you’ll live the life you’ve always dreamed of. However, with the advantages come inevitable disadvantages. For example, the excruciating pain that can disrupt your everyday life. One of the most common and stressful complaints that many suffer from is back pain. Symptoms can range from a dull, persistent ache caused by sitting for long periods of time to a sharp and sudden pain. This shakes the spine when you lift something heavy. The effects of back pain can be debilitating and prevent you from completing your daily tasks with ease.

But don’t be afraid of the Singaporeans! Back pain treatment in Singapore is readily available, and physical therapy (PT) can be an effective way to get you back on your feet (and pain-free!) in no time.

What is physical therapy and how can it help with back pain?

Physical therapy is a form of health care that focuses on restoring and improving your movement and function. PT can help with back pain in several ways:

  • Reduce Pain and Inflammation: PT uses various techniques, such as manual therapy and specific exercises, to target the source of pain and reduce inflammation.
  • Improve flexibility and range of motion: ‍♀️ Stiffness and tension can lead to back pain. PT stretches and exercises can help you move more freely and relieve discomfort.
  • Strengthen core muscles: A strong core supports your spine and helps prevent future injuries and improve long-term back health.
  • Find out about correct posture and ergonomics: PT can teach you strategies to improve your posture and body mechanics, whether at work, at home, or during recreational activities. ️

What to expect during physical therapy for back pain

The first step in your PT journey is an initial assessment. This usually includes a discussion about your medical history, symptoms and lifestyle habits. Your physical therapist may also perform a physical exam to assess your posture, range of motion, and muscle strength.

Based on the assessment, they will develop an individualized treatment plan tailored specifically to your needs. This plan could include:

  • Manual therapy: This includes hands-on techniques such as massage, joint mobilization, and soft tissue mobilization to improve flexibility and reduce pain.
  • Movement therapy: ️‍♀️ The physical therapist will prescribe specific exercises to strengthen core muscles, improve flexibility, and address any underlying imbalances that are contributing to your pain.
  • Education and self-management techniques: Your physical therapist will teach you stretches, exercises, and proper body mechanics that you can practice at home to relieve your pain and prevent future problems. ‍♀️

Benefits of Physiotherapy for Back Pain

Choosing physical therapy to treat back pain offers several benefits:

  • Non-invasive and drug-free: PT offers a safe and effective alternative to medication or surgery and minimizes potential side effects.
  • Long-term pain relief: PT not only treats your current pain, but also equips you with tools to prevent future problems and provide long-term pain relief.
  • Improved function and mobility: By improving your strength, flexibility, and posture, PT allows you to move freely and participate in the activities you enjoy.
  • Reduced Healthcare Costs: By treating your pain conservatively, PT can help reduce the need for costly medical procedures such as surgery or frequent doctor visits.
