Spinal Manipulative Therapy
Spinal manipulation is a treatment involving a series of progressive movement techniques that our physiotherapists use to help relieve stiffness and reduce pain throughout the spine. As well as restoring movement and reducing pain, manipulation and mobilisation techniques are successfully used to reduce the effects of whiplash and chronic headaches.
With the increase in desk related work and sedentary lifestyles, we are treating an increasing number of patients with stiff and painful neck and backs. Interestingly, we are finding that people with stiff mid-backs (Thoracic spine) can develop breathing problems and can ultimately lead to a reduction in energy levels. We find that mobilising and manipulating the thoracic spine helps improve the movement of the ribs and enhance breathing performance.
Joint Mobilisation Techniques
Joint mobilisation techniques are utilised for both assessment and treatment. These can range from gentle pressure (to assist with pain relief) to a greater pressure (to assist with joint stiffness) to get the desired results.
