What’s causing my back pain?

Your spine is a wonderful but complex instrument relying on the interplay of many joints, muscles, discs and nerves to allow great flexibility but also strength to absorb load and give stability. All these structures are possible sources of pain.

Our physiotherapists are skilled at identifying where the pain is coming from. It may be your disc, your facet joints or a muscle strain or knot. You may have pressure on one of your nerves. Close assessment will identify the likely problem area and guide your treatment plan.

Our physiotherapists are skilled at recognizing what is causing the problem. Is there inflammation? Is it due to repeated overstrain? Is it due to muscle weakness? Once they find the cause they will help you fix it.

Manual, hands on therapy helps!

Hands on treatment will help settle flare ups of new or recurrent back pain.

Your physiotherapist will use hands on manual techniques to loosen stiff and restricted joints and to soften tight painful muscles. They will identify the stiff and tender segments of your spinal joints and muscles and apply localized mobilizing techniques to help restore normal movement and reduce pain. Generally you will need a few sessions over 1-2 weeks to get optimal results and have you back on track

Our physiotherapists will stretch it, loosen it, needle it and soften it. Whatever is needed to safely get your spine moving again.
