Spinal pain can be a debilitating condition. Depending on the location, sufferers may experience difficulty in walking, sleeping, bending or sitting, and can struggle to undertake simple daily activities.
Spinal pain can originate from either joints or muscles, and accurately determining its source is important in creating the optimum treatment plan. With appropriate treatment, spinal pain can be effectively managed and pain substantially reduced.
Some of the treatment options commonly employed by Queensland Physiotherapy in remediating spinal pain include:
- Core exercises
- Joint mobilisations
- Muscular retraining
- Electrotherapy (Ultrasound, TENS etc)
