When you see a physiotherapist at Remedy Wellness Centre, you can expect an in depth assessment to find the root cause of your back and neck pain. Your physiotherapist may use techniques to mobilize your spinal joints, and will give you advice on how to best maintain your thoracic mobility, essential for a healthy low back and neck. The thoracic spine (mid back) can often become immobile, which can cause compensatory hypermobility and strain in the lower back and neck. Back pain can be driven by tight hamstrings, underactive or tight quads, poor core engagement, unstable SI joints and a long list of other things. We have the tools to figure out where it's coming from so we can fix it and teach you how to take better care of yourself. No need to waste time doing stretches and exercises that aren't really helping you.
Using manual therapy and other treatment techniques like myofascial release, IMS, and MET, your physiotherapist will help you to regain lost mobility, provide you with instructions on how to achieve ideal postural alignment, and prescribe therapeutic exercises that will support your spine. Patient education is very important to us and we like to empower our patients to take part in the treatment process by prescribing exercises and stretches to be done at home.
