Low back pain holding you back? How we can help!

Updated: Mar 20, 2023

Our low back supports the weight of the upper body, providing mobility for movements like bending and twisting. The muscles of the low back are responsible for flexing and rotating the hips while walking as well. The complex structure of the low back consisting of bones, joints, ligaments, nerves, and muscles can be susceptible to injuries.

How we can help

Intramuscular stimulation (IMS) is a quick and affective technique used by our physiotherapist to alleviate pain. Using medical grade acupuncture needles to target trigger points of tightened muscles, it can help to release pressure of affected nerves.

Trigger point release and myofascial release are techniques used by both our physiotherapists and massage therapists to manually loosen up tight knots and fascia. It is very affective to relieve tension of the various layers of the lower back to avoid further pain.
