My mother is suffering from severe back pain for the past six months. I have read that people suffering from most types of low back pain are often referred for physiotherapy for at least four weeks as an initial treatment option before considering other treatments including back surgery.
One of my friends also recommends about this. She suggested consulting one of the physiotherapists( dynamicphysiotherapy.ca ) and get more information regarding this.
Does anyone here have any idea regarding this? If yes, please do share your experience.
Hi, yes many GPS refer for physiotherapy. It can make a huge difference as many people do not exercise their muscles enough and it can cause huge problems. It takes time and effort on the part of the patient and It won't be successful unless they put this in. However, if it works, it will set your mum up for life as she will have strategies to use to ease the pain. It is well worth a try. Also, an X-ray could help with diagnosis and help give some answers as it's very upsetting not knowing and understanding what is wrong with you. I hope you manage to get some answers for your mum and that her pain is eased. Wishing you well.
