Back Therapy and Physiotherapy Singapore
Back therapy differ from individuals to individuals. Sixty percent of the population has back pain at some point in their lives and fifty percent of them becomes chronic, lasting for months and years. As everyone's back pains
is caused by unique and different factors e.g. some is due to poor
postural habits, some is genetically caused, some are caused by trauma -
back therapy and physiotherapy will vary from individual to individual.
Common symptoms of back pain are a combination of the following: shooting,
sharp and stabbing pain that sometimes "travel" and radiate down the
leg; muscles and structures of the back becomes very stiff; painful with
standing motion. Our goal in our physiotherapy clinic almost always
begins with pain relief physiotherapy first, and when the pain is
relieved, we will proceed with our differential diagnosis physiotherapy
to identify the root cause of the back pain and to treat the root cause -
we do this so that the back pain doesn't recur.
If the back pain is very acute, we will begin with cold physiotherapy to decrease spasms or choose heat physiotherapy to loosen the stiff and aching muscles. When the muscles are more relaxed then we will proceed with manual mobilization and manipulation physiotherapy directly to joints, muscles and ligaments, which helps them glide and loosen the structures; as well as ultrasound physiotherapy which function is to accelerate healing.
As pain is being relieved, we will start on exercise physiotherapy
to strengthen weakened muscles and mobilize/activate injured muscles to
vascularized the injured structures. We will still continue with our heat physiotherapy to loosen the stiff and aching muscles, followed by manual mobilization and manipulation physiotherapy as and when necessary. Sometimes, when necessary, we prescribe computerized traction physiotherapy which provides exact and minute gentle, computer aided traction to the joints and structures of you back and neck.
In many cases, we may need to performergonomics physiotherapy
assessment on your workstation and workplace, to determine the role of
your workplace and workstation in the back injury and back pain, and we
may prescribe modification and changes that you may have to do to
prevent the back pain from coming back. This is to ensure that the back
therapy prescribed from our physiotherapy clinic in Singapore is
