What About Lower Back Pain?

The skilled physiotherapists at Broadmead Physiotherapy first treat back pain through education. We want you to understand WHY you’re experiencing lower back pain, and HOW we can prevent it from re-occurring. Ensuring that you understand what’s wrong with your lower back is the key to getting better. Most importantly, we’ll make sure that you know how we’re going to help you get back to normal. To do this, we use a variety of techniques. 

Here are some of the treatment modalities we may use:

Manual therapy: mobilization of the joints to stretch them out to restore range of motion and to relax tight muscles

Manipulation: This is where we apply a quick stretch the joint to cause a “cracking” sound to relax muscles and restore range of motion

IMS (Intramuscular Stimulation): we use acupuncture needles to relax tight muscles caused by nerve irritation which in turn can take some pressure off the irritated nerve

Soft Tissue Mobilization: trigger point pressure to release tight muscles

Traction or Decompression: we use a machine to gently stretch your spine

Electrical modalities: to reduce inflammation, decrease pain and relax tight muscles

Stretches: to lengthen tight muscles

Home exercises: to strengthen muscles including the core

Education: so that you understand your injury fully

Referral: we will contact your GP or specialist if we feel you may require further testing (x-ray, CT, MRI, etc) or evaluation (specialist)
