Back pain affects up to 90% of us at some stage of our life, with nearly 4 million Australians suffering from this every year. There are many various causes of this and we recommend that this get checked out by your medical doctor. This must be assessed thoroughly, and investigations may be required. As Dr Justin Lim has worked in the Emergency Departments in major Australian and European Hospitals he understands the importance of ensuring that this is not caused by a major critical condition such as a Myocardial infarction (MI) or an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA). Only after assessing the cause, we can then consider the optimal treatment program for you.
