Back Pain

Back Pain is a common problem that affects people of all ages and can have a significant impact on their quality of life. 

At Martvic Exercise Therapy Centre, we understand how debilitating back pain can be and we offer a range of treatments to help alleviate it. Back pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including poor posture, muscle strain, herniated discs, and spinal stenosis. Symptoms can range from mild discomfort to sharp, shooting pain that radiates down the legs. Back pain can also be accompanied by other symptoms such as numbness, tingling, and weakness in the legs.

Our team of experienced physical therapists works with each patient to develop an individualized treatment plan based on their specific needs and goals. Treatment may include a combination of exercise therapy, manual therapy, and education on proper posture and body mechanics. Exercise therapy is an essential component of back pain treatment. Our physical therapists will
design a customized exercise program to improve strength, flexibility, and range of motion. This program may include stretching exercises, core strengthening exercises, and aerobic exercise to help promote healing and reduce pain.

Manual therapy is another effective treatment for back pain. This type of therapy involves hands-on techniques such as massage, mobilization, and manipulation to help reduce pain, improve flexibility, and promote healing.

In addition to exercise and manual therapy, education on proper posture and body mechanics is crucial in preventing future back pain. Our physical therapists will work with each patient to identify habits or activities that may be contributing to their pain and provide guidance on how to modify these behaviour to prevent further injury. At Martvic Exercise Therapy Centre, we are committed to providing our patients with the highest quality care for back pain. Our goal is to help our patients regain their mobility and function so that they can return to their daily activities with minimal pain and discomfort.
