OUR BACK PAIN TREATMENT METHOD
We take a different approach to back and pelvic pain called the Soaz Method, which aims to find the original source of pain. Unlike traditional physiotherapy approaches that tend to target the symptoms, the Soaz Method is a groundbreaking treatment that assesses and treats the whole person.
Lower back pain is an extremely common condition with up to 80% of the population experiencing repeat episodes of back pain, despite seeking out professional back pain treatment. This indicates that the cause has not been treated. The Soaz Method incorporates a holistic approach and seeks to treat the whole client to address the issue so it doesn’t return.
The Psoas muscle places and extraordinary amount of pressure on the body and it is this that forms the basis of the Soaz Method pioneered by Principal Physiotherapist Julie Williams.
We also use treatments like acupuncture, which is proven to help back pain and related ailments. If you’re looking for acupuncture in Adelaide, the team at Posturepro are trained professionals who prioritise your health and wellbeing to find you the best treatment.
WHAT CAUSES LOWER BACK PAIN?
The underlying pathology of lower back pain is usually the result of huge compression and distorting forces acting over the spine. This results in joint and disc deterioration, which can in turn cause leg, hip, buttock and groin pain. These referred pain areas can also become chronic if the original source of the problem is not identified and treated.
While it is estimated by the vast majority of therapists that patients with back pain will recover within six weeks, at Posturepro Physiotherapy Adelaide we see people start to experience improved movement, and decreased pain and discomfort after only 3-5 sessions; with many even sooner that that. If correctly diagnosed with a thorough assessment procedure and the original source of the problem identified, the Soaz Method can make chronic back pain a thing of the past.
Posturepro Physiotherapy Adelaide’s exclusive Soaz Method treats the root cause of symptomatic back pain. Back pain is an important issue in cost to the community and has considerable impact on the economy due to time taken off work.
ASSESSMENT AND TREATMENT OF LOWER BACK PAIN
To treat lower back pain for good, it is crucial to perform a thorough full body assessment, not just a back assessment for pain relief. The Posturepro approach is a total body one where we find out what other factors are influencing the back.
Treatments are tailored to each person’s individual presentation and history with a commitment to finding a long term solution for your back pain. Contact Posturepro Physiotherapy Adelaide today to arrange your comprehensive lower back consultation where we can help identify the exact cause of your back pain and begin a course of corrective care.
Acupuncture is a 3000 year old healing technique that originated in China and has proven results in helping back pain. Posturepro Physiotherapy Adelaide uses acupuncture in a range of treatments to assist with back pain.
OPTIMAL FITNESS AND PEAK PERFORMANCE
Optimal fitness of the musculoskeletal system is vital to perform our daily activities and for reaching peak performance in our chosen sport and working environment. Without this balance the body’s muscles start to compensate and pull the joints into less than optimal positions which leads to dysfunction pain and deterioration
These dysfunctions (incorrect postural positioning) will lead to breakdown of the joints ligaments discs and muscles causing pain, decreased movement and lead to increased restrictions within the body.
OUR PHYSIOTHERAPY PRACTICE
When you attend our clinic you will be thoroughly assessed before treatment begins. This thorough process is where we will not compromise. We use the analogy of a house where continually patching up the cracks without looking at the foundations is in the long term more costly and dangerous.
One of our guiding principles at Posturepro Physiotherapy Adelaide clinic is to target the original source of pain. When this is identified and treated appropriately then other compromised areas of the body automatically resolve at the same time. This is what we call our foundational approach. This is not a symptomatic approach.
