    Treatment Options

    Low back pain can significantly impact daily life, but with proper understanding and targeted treatment, individuals can find relief and improve their overall well-being. Identifying the type and cause of low back pain is crucial in determining the most suitable treatment approach. Whether it's physiotherapy, osteopathy, or chiropractic care, seeking professional guidance can pave the way for a healthier and pain-free back.

    Physiotherapy is a holistic approach that combines various techniques to improve strength, flexibility, posture, and overall well-being. It encompasses a range of interventions, including exercises, stretching, manual therapy, and education. Physiotherapists may utilize different modalities as part of the treatment plan, such as shockwave therapy, matrix therapy, PEMF therapy, spinal decompression system, IFT, and ultrasound therapy. These modalities can help in reducing pain, promoting tissue healing, and improving mobility.

    Osteopathic treatment focuses on optimizing musculoskeletal health through manual techniques, including manipulation, mobilization, and soft tissue therapy. It aims to restore balance and alleviate low back pain.

    Chiropractors use spinal adjustments and manipulations to improve alignment, relieve pressure on nerves, and promote healing. They may also incorporate other therapies like exercises and lifestyle modifications.
