80% of adults experience back pain at some point in their lives

Backache is often an indicator that our muscles, joints, ligaments or discs being overstretched or twisted. This may be caused by an injury or medical conditions such as slipped disc or scoliosis. For some, back pain is a recurring or chronic issue due to poor posture or lifestyle habits.

It is easy to dismiss back pain as a common ailment that poses minor inconvenience and put off treatment. However, delaying treatment for back pain can lead to chronic pain or complications such as pinched nerves, alignment problems and/or fixed vertebrae, which may require more complex, invasive and costly medical intervention down the road.

Say goodbye to back pain without surgery

A common misconception many people have is that the only solution to back pain is surgeries. However, there are a number of non-invasive solutions that can help us heal and prevent chronic pain and complications if we seek treatment early.

Rest prevents further strain on the back and is one of the most important factors in recovery. However, if the pain does not subside, seek professional treatment.

Using a combination of heat, traction, manual treatment, movement and exercise, physiotherapy can help to ease pain and stiffness and prevent future injuries or pain attacks by strengthening the back. If stepping out of home for regular physiotherapy sessions sound like a hassle, there are many home physiotherapy providers that allow you to access the care you need without the discomfort of travelling and long waits at the clinics. For some people, medication may be prescribed to reduce inflammation or for pain relief.

Meet Our Physiotherapists

Hello, I’m Alvin, a physiotherapist since 1993.

My passion is in the areas of geriatric and stroke rehabilitation. The joy of my profession comes from helping seniors to walk again.

I have worked also with national sportsmen and women during my various stints with hospitals and the Singapore Sports Council. Presently, I am a full-time home physiotherapist helping those who find it hard to get to rehab clinics. Being there to modify their home environment can help the seniors to adhere to the prescribed exercises. I also talk to them in a familiar language or dialects such as Hokkien and Teochew so that they feel comfortable during the therapy visits.

I believe in empowering patients who are undergoing this process of rehabilitating and encourage caregivers to be a part of this process so as to help their loved ones recover faster.
