In today’s age, spinal pain related to the back and neck and fairly prevalent. These issues may arise from postural problems, mechanics, inactivity, accidents and event stress.
At Physio Focus, we hear about these issues amongst our clients frequently.
What is Spinal Physiotherapy?
Spinal Physiotherapy is a large sub-category of musculoskeletal physiotherapy dedicated to managing disorders and conditions that are related to the spine.
Physiotherapists are experts in many different aspects of the spine, and in non-surgical treatments for spinal pain. Whether it is rehabilitating patients with spinal cord injuries to treating conditions such as lower back and neck pain, our physiotherapists can help.
Common Conditions We Treat with Spinal Physiotherapy
- Lower back pain
- Sciatica or nerve pain in the legs and feet
- Migraines & headaches
- Neck pain
- Workplace-related and Postural related injuries to the back or neck
- Sports-related injuries
- Car accidents / whiplash
- Poor postural alignment and control
- Shoulder and arm pain, referred from the neck
- Stiffness and pain of the thoracic spine
Considering all of the above, it is understandable that occasionally pain or dysfunction occurs. One of the reasons why spinal conditions often require physiotherapy help to resolve them is that the body will allow for other levels of the spine to compensate and does not give the injured structure the opportunity to return to normal function.
Our physiotherapists use a wide variety of treatment modalities, such as manual therapy, specific or general exercise (to name a few) to ensure the most effective, evidence-based treatments for these spinal conditions possible.
Additionally, your physiotherapist will also teach you how to manage the injuries beyond our clinic, and how prevent the injury from recurring. We believe that educating our clients on their conditions and how to prevent it, is a vital part of taking control of their own health and well-being.
