Prognosis

How long until you are better?

Low Back Pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Facet Joint arthropathies
  • nerve root compression
  • lumbopelvic dissociation or assymetries
  • Sacroiliac joint pain- also related to pregnancy
  • Traction
  • Passive accessory intervertebral movements and glides 
  • Passive Physiological intervertebral movements and glides
  • Nerve root glides and stretches
  • Lumbopelvic dissociation exercises and home exercise programs
  • Taping and de-loading techniques 
  • Manipulations as required for increased hypomobility and stiffness
Improvement after 1st session. Managing LBP after 5 sessions of Physiotherapy
Neck pain 
  • Osteoarthritis 
  • Whiplash associated disorder
  • Deep neck flexor instability
  • Wry neck 
  • Facet joint or intervertebral hypomobility
  • Traction
  • Passive accessory intervertebral movements and glides 
  • Passive Physiological intervertebral movements and glides
  • Nerve root glides and stretches
  • Lumbopelvic dissociation exercises and home exercise programs
  • Taping and de-loading techniques 
  • Manipulations as required for increased hypomobility and stiffness
Improvement after 1st session. Managing LBP after 5 sessions of Physiotherapy
Shoulder pain
  • Primary or secondary impingement
  • subacromial bursitis
  • rotator cuff pathology i.e. tears, strains, poor biomechanics
    • Supraspinatus
    • inrfaspinatus
    • teres minor and major
  • Electrotherapy including:
    • TENS including Compex machines (trans electrocutaneous nerve stimulation)
    • Ultrasound (high frequency sound waves, pulsed or continuous)
    • LASER Therapy
    • Interferential Therapy
  • Dry Needling or Western Acupuncture:
    • This can be used for two effects including (1.) increasing circulation to an area to facilitate the clearance of inflammation and (2.) Releasing a trigger point or shortened muscle via way of creating an action potential that will trigger a muscle contraction and break the cross bridges that are holding the muscle in a shortened postion. 
  • Heat 
  • Massage 
Improvement after 1st session. Managing LBP after 5 sessions of Physiotherapy
Hip Pain
  • Labral tears
  • Trachanteric bursitis
  • Piriformis syndrome

  • Electrotherapy including:
    • TENS including Compex machines (trans electrocutaneous nerve stimulation)
    • Ultrasound (high frequency sound waves, pulsed or continuous)
