Do you find yourself constantly battling an ache in your back? Has this chronic pain become an unwelcome part of your day-to-day life?
Persistent back pain, often instigated by sedentary lifestyles, improper lifting techniques, or ageing, is a universal affliction.
Most people take painkillers or muscle relaxants to get through the pain and function normally, which has its own set of issues, especially after prolonged use...
But what if there was a way to effectively achieve lasting pain relief in your back, for good?
Back pain physiotherapy at Phoenix Rehab is your solution.
Our dedicated specialists are skilled in treating and managing back pain, offering a pathway to significant relief and regaining control over your life.

The Phoenix Process: Find Freedom from Back Pain with Our Proven Methodology
Step 1: Initial Consultation
At Phoenix Rehab, we prioritize creating a relaxed, patient-centred environment.
We'll work with you to address your symptoms and concerns, ensuring that you fully understand your condition before proceeding with treatment; we prioritise you making an informed decision on your treatment.
Our consultations aim to cultivate trust and open communication, providing you with a comfortable space.
After all, if the pain is long-term (chronic), wouldn't it be better with someone you're comfortable with AND who is very educated and experienced?
Step 2: In-depth Review
Your back pain specialist will conduct an in-depth review of your medical history to understand your symptoms, lifestyle, and health goals fully.
Beyond answering our questions, you may be required to bring medical reports or referral forms.
This is a crucial step in forming a customised treatment plan that accounts for the patient's past and current medical conditions, underlying issues, or potential problems that may arise in the future.
Step 3: Assessment
Based on your review, we'll conduct clinical tests and physical assessments to understand the severity of your condition.
This aids us in ruling out potential underlying causes, injuries or safety concerns and provides an accurate diagnosis. We'd need to find out if it's your facet joints, your spinal cord, spinal stenosis or whatever the key underlying cause of your chronic back pain or injury is.
At our clinic, we prioritize safe and effective treatments that tackle health issues without triggering adverse side effects. This is why our team consists exclusively of highly experienced physical therapists.
We ensure all sessions are personalized and one-on-one, with no therapy assistants involved at any stage of the pain relief sessions, guaranteeing the highest quality of care and attention.
Step 4: Treatment
Based on our findings, we'll discuss a customised pain treatment plan to help you reach your goals. Most patients will receive physical therapy and back pain treatment within the same session.
Our primary goal is to deliver prompt back pain relief.
Once the pain has been mitigated, we can concentrate on addressing the fundamental issues causing lower back discomfort, aiming to reduce the reliance on muscle relaxants or pain relief medications, where feasible.
Naturally, our expert spinal physiotherapists will conduct regular observations during each of your follow-up sessions.
This approach allows us to track your progress and adjust the intensity of our treatments, thereby supporting you effectively throughout your recovery journey.
Live Everyday Life Pain-free with Our Therapeutic Interventions
Back Pain Physiotherapy
Our back pain physiotherapy might include aerobic exercises to strengthen your back and abdominal muscles, gentle manual therapy, and modern modalities such as ultrasound or TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation).
When there's acute sciatica (or sharp pain), we perform joint and soft tissue mobilizations (all non-surgical) to relieve the impingement or acute irritation of the nerves that are causing pain to the back and down the buttock muscles.
In some cases, there may need to be specific muscle stretches, such as hamstring stretches, because the hamstring muscles are very tight due to shortening from prolonged sitting.
Dry needling is a technique used by physiotherapists for the treatment of tight spinal muscles.
A small needle is inserted into the muscle to create what is known as a ‘local twitch response’, especially helpful when there's a muscle spasm, which can cause localized stiffness and back pains.
Hydrotherapy is a form of physical therapy performed in a body of water (oftentimes a pool) under the supervision of a trained physiotherapist.
These water exercises help reduce the impact on your joints while still providing a competent workout for your healing muscles.
Understanding the root cause of your pain and implementing preventative measures is an integral part of your recovery journey.
This may include advice on posture, body mechanics, and ergonomics to prevent relapse and provide effective, sustainable back pain relief.
