Here at Perth Sports Physiotherapy we treat all general spinal conditions and reducing the pain and discomfort associated with injuries both acute and chronic.
Having clinicians with post graduate Manipulative Masters level training gives us an extra edge of expertise for accurate diagnosis and treatment of the spine. We have 22 years of experience in working on necks and backs.
Injury can be caused by a one off incident or from a repeated overload in poor posture.
We use evidence based practice to treat acute episodes of neck and back pain and expect to improve clients within 3 -4 days.
In some cases, more severe soft tissue and ligamentous damage may take up to 6 weeks to heal. It is important to get the initial diagnosis right so that the correct course of treatment is prescribed for you. In these cases, we may use a team of consultant experts in our network to help you.
Physiotherapy Treatment may include:
- Manual therapy
- Mobilisation & manipulation of joints
- Biomechanical assessments
- Dry needling & acupuncture
- Video motion analysis
We will give you evidence based strengthening and exercise programs to help you manage your neck or back pain so that it does not keep repeating. We use video based exercises on an App to your phone to make this easier for you.
In some cases, pain can start without a clear cause. The central nervous system and spinal nerves and tissues can be wound up or ‘sensitised’. This means that specific tissue damage is not likely the cause of your pain. In these cases we need to address the underlying causes that are the drivers of this pain to help you with management strategies to get better.
