Prizorgo will conduct an examination and assessment and will determine if there are any joint limitations or muscle weakness as well as pinpointing the pain distribution in your treatment for back pain and or sciatica pain.
Heat therapy and massage, as well as ultrasound, may be used to ease back pain. In the past, these types of treatments, which demanded little from the patient, and soothed the pain were used as the mainstay of treatment.
Unfortunately, while these “modalities,” as they are called by therapists, feel good at the time, the pain relief produced by sports injury massage and ultrasound treatments are often only temporary.
More recently therapists have demanded physical activity from their patients, which may cause minor pain at the beginning of the course of treatment, but has longer lasting therapeutic effects: strengthening the back and relieving pain in the long run.
Some therapists that treat patients with mobilisation techniques, movement, exercise, strengthening and conditioning, encouraging a gradual increase in activity, are usually the most successful.
