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)

My husband (big fan of hockey) found this physio by Googling and booked for Ian (His profile shows Ian used to be a physical therapy consultant to the Edmonton Oilers!). I had a major accident last year. I can walk on my own again without any devices because of Ian’s help and guidance. He is indeed honest, compassionate, knowledgeable, helpful, and has a good sense of humour. He sends me follow up emails to ensure that I don’t forget my training menu at home. I have never seen such a dedicated therapist in my life. The physio office is always really clean and all the receptionists are helpful. Thank you.read more

Colleen Davies is the best! I put my back out, summer 2019 and tried everything for 3 weeks until I found out about Colleen and her magic IMS needles. I was walking again the next day😀. I have been back for 2 maintenance sessions since then and my back is great!I am looking forward to some relief with my "tennis elbow" next😅All the sporty, fun, crazy activities of youth catching up! Thank you 💛read more

I cannot say enough about Paul, Lauren and the entire crew at Broadmead Orthopaedic Physio! I found Paul 20 years ago when I had unsuccessfully tried 4 other physiotherapists, and my GP recommended Paul. Paul had me fixed after 3 sessions, when all others failed! His knowledge of the entire human body system is utterly thorough! More recently, Lauren treated me for severe vertigo, fixed completely in one session ! They are the best of the best !read more
