Physiotherapy is particularly effective in treatment of spinal pain. Back pain affects up to 80% of the population and may include radiating pain and/or numbness into the legs, pins and needles, burning sensation, cramping and in severe cases can cause muscular dysfunction.
Our Physiotherapists can accurately assess and diagnose the cause of your pain and dysfunction and, if required, organise for appropriate x-ray, MRI, or other investigations to support the diagnosis.
Treatment techniques can include spinal mobilisations and manipulations, spinal traction, electrotherapy modalities including therapeutic ultrasound and interferential stimulation, exercise, soft tissue massage, trigger point therapy and dry needling to relieve pain and restore movement. Appropriate rehabilitation exercises to facilitate a rapid return to full, pain free function and preventative strategies are utilised.
