Newcastle Physiotherapist for back pain

Back pain: the role of the physiotherapist Newcastle

If you suffer from low back pain, your doctor will prescribe you, in addition to the drug treatments adapted to your case, sessions with a Newcastle Physiotherapist. The content and number of sessions will depend on the cause of your back pain. To relieve pain in the lumbar region, the healthcare professional will assess your diagnosis (with the order of the attending physician and the health examinations carried out until then) and will conduct a thorough examination of your spine and your lifestyle.

The rehabilitation from a Newcastle Physiotherapist aims to relieve muscle tension and stiffness at first and rebalance and re-educate muscle and joint chains in a second time. The first treatment in physiotherapy is massage, designed to relax muscle contractures. These reflex muscle contractions are caused by pain; by maintaining the inflammations, they contribute at the same time to maintain this pain. It's the vicious circle of back pain. As the High Authority for Health (HAS) specifies: "Although there is no study attesting to their effectiveness, massages can be offered at the start of a rehabilitation session in preparation for the other techniques".
