Causes of low back pain:
  • Muscle strain from sporting activities like heavy lifting or incorrect posture
  • Disc degeneration and facet joint arthritis
  • Annular tears or slipped discs
  • “Slipped bone” (spondylolisthesis)
  • Fractures in the spine from falls or accidents
  • Spinal tumours
  • Spinal infections
  • Inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis

Prior to recommending treatment options for low back pain, a proper clinical evaluation is done by the doctor.

Imaging modalities such as X-rays and/or MRI may subsequently be done depending on the clinical history and examination by the doctor. Once a diagnosis is established, treatment options can then be suggested.

Treatment options:
  • Physiotherapy
  • Anti-inflammatory medication & muscle relaxants
  • Keyhole, minimally-invasive surgery

Low back pain can be treated safely and effectively with Dr Mash. Treatment is personalised to provide patient with quick and effective form of recovery.
