Are you experiencing Back Pain?
When it comes to pain and injuries, you can broadly categorise them into two kinds: acute and chronic, with physiotherapy handling more of the acute category. Acute pain is sharp – it typically comes on suddenly and caused by something specific like a recent injury or surgery. Chronic pain, however, can be described as a dull, constant, episodic or reoccurring sort of pain and usually lasts longer than six months, continuing even after the injury or illness that caused it has healed.
At Core Fitness, depending on the severity of the injury or post op inflammation, our physiotherapists will first seek to stabilise the back and reduce the immediate pain and swelling through different clinical treatments such as stabilising methods, ultrasound therapy, electrotherapy and ice/heat application.
For stabler cases, they can also employ other methods like manual therapy, assisted stretches, soft tissue manipulation or even prescribe mobility exercises aimed at helping the injured area to heal more quickly. Our physiotherapists can also prescribe specific injury-related strengthening exercises to help further rehabilitate and stabilise the muscles around the injury site.
Chronic back pain, on the other hand, is a very common affliction plaguing modern Singaporeans and its symptoms may include soreness, stiffness, or dull pain in the back. These different types of back pain may have various causes that might be hard to differentiate and diagnose without professional assistance.
Our physiotherapist will help to assess and pinpoint these underlying causes of the pain. In many cases of chronic back pain, contrary to popular belief, carefully guided activation and mobilisation of the back muscles can actually prove to be the best medicine in the long run. Our approach differs from traditional physiotherapy treatments in that you may expect various manual therapies, clinical Pilates and rehabilitative exercises as part of a holistic and tailored treatment plan at Core Fitness.
