Back Pain Treatment in Calgary, AB

We Provide Non-Surgical Relief for Back Pain

Physiotherapy is one of the most effective ways to relieve back pain, which allows you to live your life to the fullest. At Radiant Physiotherapy, we can help you manage your back pain by identifying the root cause and providing a treatment plan.

Common Causes of Lower Back Pain Include

  • Muscle strain: caused by twisting or stretching beyond one’s limits while lifting objects

  • Sciatica: condition caused by compression of the spinal nerve cord in the lower back

  • Herniated disc: gradual age-related wear and tear of the discs

  • Scoliosis: an abnormal sideways curvature of the spine

How to Care for Back Pain

Whether sudden or chronic, back pain can disrupt your day-to-day activities. Therefore, it is advised not to take it lightly and address the cause immediately before it aggravates. Acute pain usually subsides after the first line of treatments. However, subacute and chronic back pain will require expert advice and diagnosis. If your back pain is hindering your routine functions, you should consider physiotherapy as a solution.

Physiotherapy Treatments for Back Pain

 

  • Manual therapy: It involves several hands-on soft tissues and joint techniques to alleviate back conditions such as hypomobility, spinal stenosis, post-surgical back pain, and more.
  • Physical therapy: From back pain to disc pain, our physiotherapy treatment effectively treats general musculoskeletal (MSK) or orthopedic conditions.
  • Acupuncture: As an alternative to traditional medicine, acupuncture involves placing needles into certain anatomical areas to promote natural healing by increasing the release of endorphins.
  • Massage therapy: It involves several techniques that treat your body's muscles and soft tissues, thus reducing stress, relieving muscular tension, and helping you feel more relaxed.
  • Stability and strengthening exercises: Our physiotherapists will engage you in routine exercises that increase muscle flexibility and strength and promote healing by increasing blood flow to the injury site.
