Preventing Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain is one of the most common complaints amongst adults today. This ailment accounts for more lost working hours than that of any other type of occupational injury. This is where sports therapy/sports massage helps.

Causes and Prevention

Many problems caused in this region included structural abnormalities, some disease, accidents, inappropriate lifting. It is more often caused by ‘repetitive micro trauma’. This is when an individual repeats an inappropriate movement, or uses poor posture over a long period of time. The key here is to minimise risk. Massage, Exercise such as Pilates (click on Pilates for the link and more information) and Corrective Lifting Techniques are but a few ways in order to prevent or keep at bay lower back/back pain.

Quality of Life

To improve our quality of life we need to make changes, and sometimes gradually. The overall goal for many people is to be able to participate and enjoy life to the full. For a lot of us, this will include Health, Fitness and Performance goals. Starting and emphasizing with the health goal, the rest follows on naturally. We have to get into the mind set of making sure we are, and always will stay healthy, which means looking after ourselves from the inside out.

Motivation and Discipline

The following are all encouraged:

  • Individual Attention
  • Realistic Goals
  • Periodic Testing
  • Motivation to carry on
