Is back pain preventing you from doing the activities you love?
The initial causes of back pain vary greatly but regardless of the cause the result is the same – the pain triggers a natural protective response.
The body immediately inhibits the muscles closest to the pain and we modify our movement patterns and posture to avoid painful positions.
In as little as 48 hours these important stabilising muscles begin to weaken and atrophy. It is this weakness that leaves us more susceptible to suffering recurring episodes of pain and eventually chronic pain.
“As a physiotherapist, I see the frustration in clients who seemingly ‘tried everything’ for their back pain,” Torquay physiotherapist Richard Wallace said.
“From massages to braces to creams and heat backs, they all seem to temporarily relieve pain, but the pain tends to reoccur if they don’t address the source, which is often muscular weakness in the supporting muscles of the spine.”
The Kieser method is designed to effectively break the cycle of deconditioning using the clinical reasoning and skills of their team of physiotherapists along with their targeted equipment.
At Kieser, your treatment will begin with their physiotherapists who will address your pain and begin your rehabilitation – preparing you for a long-term strength program.
