Neck & Back Pain
Do you have pain radiating down your legs or arms? Pins and needles or loss of sensation. These are serious issues which must be addressed immediately. Or is it simply that you were lifting and you put your back “out”. Is sleeping troubling you?
Neck and back pain is very serious. There are sensitive structures around the spine that need to be taken care of. The three main structures that can be injured around the spine are the intervertebral discs, lumbar facet joints or muscles. Each structure will respond well to different treatments so it is imperative that it is accurately diagnosed from the beginning to give you the best chance of a full recovery.
Our physios are all manual therapists (which mean we use our hands to do the work), we massage, manipulate, mobilise and stretch the soft tissues to improve range of motion of the joints and flexabilty of the muscles. We also load the muscles, joints and discs to build strength and resilience.
With the correct diagnosis, effective treatment and a robust exercise plan there is no reason why a full recovery is not possible. Please book online now or call 07 574 2495 to start you journey.
I went to Family Physio – Papamoa East with a Back injury and got put on to Anton. I was first off very impressed with his knowledge and the plan for recovery he came up with. I’m a person that gets very impatient with injuries and try to do things too soon but with the stretches that I was given and the treatment Anton did on my back, I was still able to work as well as recover to 100%. Very happy with his help thanks again Anton.Josh Powdrell
