Back Pain & Headaches

Back Pain

Back Pain will affect up to 90% of the population at some stage throughout their lives.  Back pain is often left untreated and without appropriate assessment and diagnosis can often become chronic or recurring.

At mudgeephysio. we are committed to providing accurate diagnosis of both your condition and the underlying causes of your back pain.  Our highly trained Physiotherapists use researched and proven hands on  treatment techniques and provide you with advice, education and a tailored exercise program to help you comprehensively manage your pain.

Common back injuries and conditions we treat include:

  • Lumbar disc prolapse (disc bulge)
  • Posture induced low back pain
  • Nerve Root Irritation/ Impingement
  • Stress Fractures
  • Post-operative (spinal fusion, disectomy, laminectomy/laminotomy)
  • Scoliosis
  • Arthritis of the spinal joints and disc space narrowing

Headaches

Headaches that are caused by the neck and upper back muscles and joints, (also know as cervicogenic headaches) are very common and treatable.

These headaches often come on with prolonged positioning, poor posture, deep neck muscle weakness and even poor sleep position.  Often these headaches are associated with day-to-day behavioural patterns that you may be unaware of.

Our physios can help by diagnosing the source of your pain and likely causes.  They will help you to develop a management program to allieviate your headaches and prevent them from recurring.
