  • Assessment - a series of tests to determine whether the pain arises from the back muscles, joints, discs or ligaments.
  • 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.
