Back and Neck Care
Physiotherapists are highly skilled at treating spinal disorders. We can treat many of the causes of spinal pain through the use of:
- Joint mobilisation and manipulation
- Mobility exercises
- Postural strengthening exercises
- Massage and dry needling
Physiotherapists also use heat, cold and local electrotherapy modalities as an adjunct to treatment and these can be very effective to reduce spinal pain and disability.
A large focus of the treatment we offer for spinal pain is retraining our clients posture. This involves education on the appropriate spinal posture for an individual client and then prescription of exercises to strengthen the muscles that facilitate this posture so that it becomes second nature. This can then result in appropriate loading of the spine ensuing less injury.
This service is offered at all Active Group Centres.
