Sporting Edge Physiotherapy Back Pain Treatment in Thornhill – Our Approach
We would use a combination of hands treatment to help restore joint range of motion, muscle function, nerve mobility and to reduce pain. Treatment techniques may include joint mobilization or manipulation and soft tissue mobilization techniques. A comprehensive manual physiotherapy approach always involves biomechanical analysis and exercise prescription to augment/maintain the gains made in treatment. The exercise prescription for the treatment of low back pain would focus on building the foundation or core musculature. This is only the beginning, as we would progress to building your strength for activities of daily living through gentle body weight and ball strengthening activities, and then finally progress to more difficult plyometric exercises to get you back to your sport or activity of choice.
The goal is not to give you the back you had before that caused you to get into this pain situation but to make you healthier and stronger so this does not happen again.
