How Physiotherapists Help Back and Neck Pain

Your physiotherapist will start by providing you with a thorough examination of your spine and thoracic mobility. Using manual therapy and other treatment techniques, your physiotherapist will help you to regain lost mobility, provide you with instructions on how to achieve ideal postural alignment, and prescribe therapeutic exercises that will support your spine.

They also prescribe suitable and safe stretches or “pause exercises,” and provide tips on how you can correct your position when sitting at a computer. Your physiotherapist can also refer you back to your family physician in cases where they suspect an underlying medical condition may be causing your back and neck pain that requires further investigation.
