Our Effective Back Pain Treatment Approach.

Due to the advanced skill set of our physios at Broadmead Physiotherapy, we are able to take a multi-faceted approach to your treatment. This means even if you have tried treatment unsuccessfully before for your back pain, chances are we can help you!

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)

I was referred to Paul Macintyre by an awesome ER Dr who also saw Paul. That in itself was good enough. In fact she gave me one of his appointments because it was pretty difficult to get in.Paul's experience is validated by not only his thorough and accredited knowledge of athletic physiology, but by also carrying around a pretty beaten up one of his own. More validation.Expect a friendly (like walking into someone's living room kinda feel) atmosphere and also the satisfaction that you're working with the most up to date equipment.Nothing but great things to say about this physiotherapist.Office staff are pretty cool too. There. 🏋️‍♀️read more

I went to Broadmead Physio after struggling to get back on the bike after a severe round of patella/knee pain. Jacob identified the root cause and worked with me to design a strengthening program to treat the underlying issue and not just the symptoms. I went from a fully locked up knee and limping around to back on the bike and being active withing a few weeks. Great service at Broadmead, and I highly recommend them.read more
