One Physiotherapy specialise in sports and spinal injuries. Back injuries and back pain are very common conditions that many people struggle with. The causes of injury can occur from activities like heavy lifting, sports and merely sitting at your desk.
The team of experts at One Physiotherapy will accurately diagnose your problem and formulate a treatment plan which may include physiotherapy treatment, massage or specific rehabilitation techniques to speed up your recovery. They work closely with local GP practices and may even recommend you see your Doctor for pain medication. An easy over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication can normally soothe a lot of backaches. Follow the instructions on the label, and take it as directed when your back begins acting up.
It is very important to act preemptively with regards to low back pain if at all possible. If you have a history of back pain in your family, or if you’re at higher risk of back injury due to your job or the sports you play, you should see a physio for some routine assessments. Physiotherapists can can help you avoid smaller back issues from progressing into major ones. At One Physiotherapy we can normally fit patients in on the day if necessary at the Madejski Stadium base.
Katharine and her team assess the patient from a holistic point of view and specifically look at their posture and any muscle imbalances. They may recommend the use of comfortable low-heeled shoes. The anxiety that high-heeled shoes put on your ankles and legs is sent up your body all the way to your hips and spine. Comfy shoes will enable you to stand and walk even more naturally, which can considerably decrease the occurrence of any pain the next morning.
Another recommendation for low back pain is heat and ice for your back. In the very first a couple of days after the onset of pain, you may want to put ice on it to minimize the swelling. After the first three days of icing your back you can then use heat to sooth and relax your muscles.
Back pain is a major problem that you shouldn’t neglect. By not handling your back pain, you run the risk of severe damage that can affect your entire life. Pain in the back is especially hard to recover from, so try to prevent it if you can.
