The location of the pain can also be different, ranging from the Lower Back to the Shoulder. There are several components in the Lumbar Spine (lower back) that can be affected by an injury. The discs between the vertebrae, the Facet joints (joints that tie vertebrae together), and/or the muscles in the lower back are the most common. In certain instances, a mixture of the above would be present.

When you first visit the Physiotherapist, you will be required to conduct a series of motions and tests that will aid the therapist in determining the source of your pain. When the disc is involved, the outer ring, the Annulus Fibrosis, is normally weakened, which can result in a “disc bulge.” In extreme cases, the disc can rupture completely, resulting in a Disc Herniation, also known (but incorrectly) as a “slipped disc.” When the facet joints are involved, the pain is mostly centred on one side of the lower back, with associated movement restrictions.For more information, visit their website at FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers Albuquerque.

When a person’s musculoskeletal system is injured, such as muscle strains, sprains, ligament tears, fractured bones, or dislocations, he must choose between physiotherapy and orthopaedic surgery. In the case of an Anterior Cruciate Injury, for example, the patient must decide if he wants to continue playing sports in the future or whether he wants to retire from it permanently. If he wishes not to participate in sports in the future, he does not need surgery and instead need physiotherapy. If he really wants to participate in sports, he’ll need orthopaedic surgery. The majority of surgeons will advise patients to choose the quickest alternative available, which is surgery. They assume that acting quickly will avoid any long-term complications, such as osteoarthritis or meniscus injury. Some doctors, on the other hand, would prescribe physiotherapy to help patients stand on their own and strengthen the muscles around them.
