What We Treat
Do you suffer from back pain?
The team at Watsonia Physiotherapy offers a range treatments for sufferers of back pain at our clinic in Watsonia, north-east of Melbourne’s CBD. Whether you have chronic back pain or a sudden onset, your pain can be intense and your lifestyle turned upside down.
Chronic pain can eventually lead to permanent injuries if it’s not treated, whilst acute back pain needs to be assessed and treated quickly to prevent it turning into a long term problem. The team of highly qualified physiotherapists at our Watsonia Clinic have years of experience treating more than 15,000 people suffering from either acute or chronic back pain, and we keep up to date with new trials and treatments as they become available.
How do we treat back pain?
The quicker you seek treatment for your back pain, the faster it can be healed. Your physiotherapist will also teach you how to prevent the same injuries happening again, particularly if it’s an acute episode.
On your first appointment at our Watsonia Clinic, your physiotherapist will take a look at your medical history and your recent activity to discover a cause for your back pain. If it’s a recent injury, then you might already know exactly what caused it!
Once we know the cause, your physiotherapist can design a treatment program that’s specifically designed to reduce your back pain. Depending on the cause of your back pain, rehabilitation exercises can also be incorporated into your treatment program.
At Watsonia Physiotherapy, we offer you a range of different treatments for your back pain, including manual treatments, massage, acupuncture and dry needling. We focus on pain relief first and long term management and rehabilitation second – we aim to have you back to your normal lifestyle, as soon as possible.
