There are many ways to treat the causes of low back pain, the one we will focus on today is spinal manipulation. This term refers to specific positions and movements applied to the joints of the lower back to create more flexibility and freedom of movement and therefore less pain. Sometimes these manipulations result in clicking noises from the spine but not always – and not having the clicking noise doesn’t mean the treatment hasn’t worked.
Spinal manipulation has been shown to significantly reduce pain in the lower back and can reduce muscle spasm.
All of our physiotherapists are qualified in spinal manipulative techniques. If you would like treatment for low back pain or any other back pain don’t wait – call us today on 01438 317037.
