Back and/or neck pain can be extremely debilitating. They can be caused by a variety of factors including poor posture, repetitive motion, heavy lifting, accidents and even stress. Common types of back and neck injuries include strains, sprains, herniated or protruding discs, and fractures. Symptoms of a back or neck pain may include stiffness, limited mobility, numbness or tingling. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms it is recommended to contact your doctor prior to beginning a physiotherapy treatment plan. Karen will then carry out a comprehensive assessment including questions about your symptoms, lifestyle and physical activity, followed by a mobility and neurological assessment.

Physiotherapy treatment may include strengthening and stretching exercises, manual (or hands-on) therapy, massage, electrotherapy, postural and ergonomic advice. However prevention is key in avoiding back and neck pain/injuries. Regular exercise and physiotherapy can help keep your spine strong and healthy.
