What About Lower Back Pain?
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)
