- Assessment - a series of tests
to determine whether the pain arises
from the back muscles, joints, discs
- Ultrasound - is often used to
provide deep heating to soft tissue
structures in the body. Deep heating
tendons, muscles or ligaments increases
circulation to those tissues, which
helps the healing process. Increasing
tissue temperature with ultrasound
is also used to help decrease pain.
- Lumbar Stabilisation Programme
- includes mobility exercises to
develop greater range of movements.
Flexibility exercises should be
performed regularly as tightness
can modify spine mechanics i.e.
increase lumber strain. Abdominal
exercises not only strengthens the
tummy muscles but educates these
muscles to perform a posterior pelvic
tilt to promote lumber stabilisation.
