BACK PAIN TREATMENT
Physiotherapy is scientifically proven to be one of the most effective ways to treat and prevent pain and injury. It strengthens muscles and improves function. It not only reduces or removes pain for a short time, but also reduces the risk for future back-pain re-occurrence. Based on the particular diagnosis, varied methods are practiced by our therapists to treat patients. They may follow a pain management program, which helps get rid of inflammation and swelling for some.
