Chronic low back pain is a chronic or persistent pain is pain that carries on for longer than 12 weeks despite medication or treatment.
Most people get back to normal after pain following an injury or operation. But sometimes the pain carries on for longer or comes on without any history of an injury or operation.
Chronic low back pain is a very common condition in the UK with 4 out of 5 adults suffering from chronic lower back pain at some point during their lives.
When pain prevents you from being able to complete everyday tasks and even the simple task of getting out of bed is a challenge, let alone exercise. Then something needs to be done.
We have found that an effective management option for patients suffering from chronic low back pain is a face to face Physiotherapy assessment and follow up treatments, together with a supervised exercise programme using trained Pilates instructors.
