Feeling like its time you to see a Osteopath or physiotherapist for your back ache.
Sports professionals and enthusiasts find it necessary for them to visit a physiotherapist during a period of injury, since the physiotherapist can help increase range of movement and increase healing time with specific treatments.
Physiotherapists can also advise on certain exercise techniques which will increase the performance of the recovering sports person if they feel certain muscle groups have become in balanced through injury.
