Spinal Pain and Dysfunction
Lower back pain and neck pain are common conditions which many people will encounter across their lives. These pains can be broadly classified as spinal pain.
Our team at Goulburn Physiotherapy Centre can assist with recovery from spinal pain however finding the most appropriate treatment strategy is paramount for a good recovery. The best treatment strategy can be guided by taking several factors about your back or neck pain into consideration. This includes how your pain started, how long your pain has been present, what activities aggravate/ease your pain, whether you've had injuries previously and an assessment of how your spine moves completing activities that replicate everyday tasks. Our physiotherapists have many treatment strategies available to treat your back or neck pain. These may include:
- Soft tissue massage to assist with relief from musclar tightness or spasm.
- Spinal joint mobilisation or manipulation techniques to improve motion of specific spinal joints which may be stiff or tight.
- Trigger point dry needling to help treat myofascial trigger points.
- Specific core muscle control exercises to help retrain the core stabilising muscles of the spine.
- Leg and hip strengthening exercises to help address any surrounding muscle imbalances.
- The Get Back spinal rehabilitation program provided at Goulburn Physiotherapy Centre allows for specific strengthening of the deeper spinal muscles which often become deconditioned in cases of persistent spinal pain.
- McKenzie therapy or exercise where specific movements can be completed in a repeated fashion to relieve and assist with recovery from spinal pain.
- Hydrotherapy can be an appropriate form of exercise to assist with recovery by completing stretching and strengthening exercises.
