Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy uses a rounded approach in the prevention, diagnosis and therapeutic management of spinal and joint disorders. It is concerned with maximising mobility and quality of life.

Physiotherapists have a wide scope of practice, from the acute care of injuries (for example neck and sporting conditions), through to rehabilitation following surgery or bony fractures. Physiotherapists often have an educational role in injury prevention and occupational health and safety.

At Brighton Spinal Group all physiotherapists are members of the Australian Physiotherapy Association and have areas of special interest and expertise, providing manipulation and manual therapy, Pilates, exercise prescription and gym based rehabilitation to the Bayside area.

Low Back Pain

Pain originating from the lower back may spread to other adjacent areas. The pain may spread up the back, or more commonly down to the buttocks, to the sacrum and coccyx area, and also down into the legs.

Neck Pain

Pain originating from the neck may spread to other adjacent areas. The pain may spread up to the head, or down to the upper back, out to the shoulders and also down into the arms. Pain spreading into the arms may not necessarily be due to pinching or irritation of nerves, but may come from deeper structures in the lower neck that tend to produce a deep dull aching type of pain spreading elsewhere.
