Common Pains & Injuries

PhysioFlex Physiotherapists treat, manage and prevent the following types of injuries and pains related to the musculoskeletal system.

Possible Cause and/or Origin

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Facet Joint arthropathies
  • Nerve root compression
  • Lumbopelvic dissociation or assymetries
  • Sacroiliac joint pain- also related to pregnancy

Treatment by Physiotherapist

  • 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

Prognosis

Improvement after 1st session. Managing LBP after 5 sessions of Physiotherapy

Possible Cause and/or Origin

  • Osteoarthritis 
  • Whiplash associated disorder
  • Deep neck flexor instability
  • Wry neck 
  • Facet joint or intervertebral hypomobility

Treatment by Physiotherapist

  • 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
  • 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

Prognosis

Improvement after 1st session. Managing LBP after 5 sessions of Physiotherapy

Possible Cause and/or Origin

  • Primary or secondary impingement
  • Subacromial bursitis
  • Rotator cuff pathology i.e. tears, strains, poor biomechanics:
    • Supraspinatus
    • Inrfaspinatus
    • Teres minor and major

Treatment by Physiotherapist

  • 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 

Prognosis

Improvement after 1st session. Managing LBP after 5 sessions of Physiotherapy

Possible Cause and/or Origin

  • Labral tears
  • Trachanteric bursitis
  • Piriformis syndrome
  • High hamstring strains
  • Gluteus medius tendonitis
  • Snapping Hip
  • Osteoarthritis and femoral acetabular impingement
