Back Pain or Injury

 

Are you currently in pain?

The earlier you seek treatment, the sooner you’ll feel better and the lower your risk of recurrent back pain. Our physiotherapists use a combination of hands-on treatment and exercise prescription to give you immediate pain relief and long term solutions.

Did you know that once you’ve had even one episode of back pain, some muscle weakness occurs? A real time ultrasound assessment will help us determine if you are using your core muscles and pelvic floor correctly, to support your back.

Whether your back pain is recent, or long-standing, our physiotherapists can help. Please call us on 9399 7399.

 

I have had recurrent back pain for years. What can I do?

Recurrent episodes of back pain mean some compensatory weakness has not allowed your back pain to resolve. You may have received a diagnosis of a disc problem, sciatica or a muscle strain – we are able to treat all of these conditions. Treatment usually includes massage, exercise and a real time ultrasound assessment. Using real time ultrasound, we can determine which muscles are weak and identify which exercises will be most appropriate for you. We may recommend you exercise in our gym, under the supervision of a physiotherapist.

 

Our goal is to minimise the amount of time you require 1:1 physiotherapy treatment, and increase your knowledge of exercises, so that your back pain does not return.

 

No matter how complex or longstanding you problem is, we will work with you to determine an appropriate exercise solution. Please call us on 9399 7399 to find out who is the most suitable physiotherapist for you.
