Do your back hurts?
Back problems affect most people at some point in their lives. In the vast majority of cases, the problems are harmless and transient. There is good scientific evidence that manual treatment, manipulation and training are effective in acute and chronic low back pain. In acute pain, continued normal activity leads to a faster recovery than inactivity and bed rest. Your life situation greatly affects how much you suffer from your back problems. Radiating pain in the leg (sciatica) with or without changes in sensation or weakness in the leg can be a sign of changes in the lumbar spine. These changes are usually benign, but you may still need consultation and treatment by a physiotherapist for help with diagnosis and therapy.
