Back pain is one of the most common health complaints, affecting 8 out of 10 people at some point during their lives. The lower back is the area most often affected. For many people, back pain goes away on its own after a few days. But for others, the pain becomes chronic and lasts for weeks or months or sometimes, years. Low-back pain can be debilitating, and it is a challenging condition to diagnose, treat, and study.
At Portishead Physiotherapy, we are qualified in the application of Spinal mobiliastion and manipulation. We use our hands to apply a controlled force to a joint of the spine and the amount of force applied depends on the form of mobilisation or manipulation used.
Along with other forms of soft tissue therapy and in-depth movement analysis, it is a safe and effective way to reduce your low back pain and restore function (the ability to walk and move).
