Categories of lower back pain
There are three different categories of back pain, acute (lasting less than 6 weeks), subacute (lasting 6 to 12 weeks) and chronic (lasting more than 12 weeks). Your treatment plan depends on the type of category you’re experiencing. It’s always best to make an appointment with an osteopath or back physio in Melton within that early 6-week window because the faster your treatment begins, the better the opportunity for success.
How do we diagnose your back pain?
To enable a diagnosis, your physio or osteopath may view recent x-rays and MRIs or request that these are performed. They will also ask about any injuries and discuss your medical history. Back pain is one of the most common conditions treated at our Melton Clinic. If you’ve been suffering pain in your back for more than a week, an appointment with our back physio or osteopath can be life-changing! Book Now

Treatments used by our osteopath in Melton
Whilst the Western Region Health physios and osteopaths can treat your back pain, there’s a difference in their approach. That’s because an osteopath focuses more on manual adjustments (joint manipulation, taping, dry needling, massage and stretching), whereas a physio focuses more on exercise therapy.
