5 Myths of Back Pain
Presented by: Physiotherapist, Gill Bechard

Thursday | 30th September, 2021 | 7:30pm AEST

Back pain is a huge problem in Australia - it affects 80% of us at some stage in our lifetime! Back pain can then inhibit muscle activation and cause us to modify our movement patterns and posture to avoid painful positions. This causes the important stabilising muscles to begin to weaken and atrophy, which can lead to back spasms and pain. It is this weakness that leaves us more susceptible to suffering recurring episodes of back pain and eventually chronic pain in what is known as the "cycle of deconditioning". It can be hard to know the right way to manage back pain with all of the options and opinions available out there. Where to even begin?! If you've got back pain, or want to avoid back pain, then this presentation is for you.
