Back pain is a common condition that affects millions of people worldwide, and it can have a significant impact on an individual’s quality of life. Fortunately, physiotherapists play a crucial role in the treatment and rehabilitation of back pain.
At Backspace, our approach is highly personalised, and we take the time to thoroughly assess each patient’s condition goals, and needs. From there, we develop a customised treatment plan that is tailored to each person’s unique presentation.
One of the primary ways that physiotherapy can help patients with low back pain and neck pain is by using exercise therapy. This can include exercise to improve posture, strength, flexibility and range of motion. By doing so, patients can reduce pain and stiffness, improve their overall function, and prevent future injuries. Physiotherapists also use manual therapy, mobilisations and massage to reduce pain and improve range of motion.
Post spinal surgery, physiotherapy plays a crucial role in helping patients recover and regain their function. After surgery, patients may experience pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility, and physiotherapy can help address these issues. We work closely with patients to develop a customised rehabilitation plan tailored to their specific needs and goals.
Perhaps most importantly, we provide patients with education and guidance on how to manage their spinal pain in the long term. This may include teaching proper body mechanics, ergonomics, and movement patterns, as well as strategies for preventing further injuries. By working with a physiotherapist, patients can gain a better understanding of their condition and learn how to manage their symptoms effectively.
In conclusion, if you are dealing with low back pain or neck pain, working with a physiotherapist can be an incredibly effective way to manage your condition and improve your quality of life.
