Physiotherapy to help straighten back

Posted , 4 users are following.

After my yearly check with consultant I was telling him that I couldnt relax my back because of the pain.he explained to me that my back was bending over and needed physio to help straighten it.AS my posture wasn't right.if I had physio it should straighten me up again all tho it would be painful. My question is has anyone else had physio for this if so was it really painful?Did it help?

Thanks in advance

    Physio can be very helpful to mobilize your spine and teach you exercises to help you stretch tight structures and strengthen your back. It can be painful but if your inflammation is not controlled but the physio has methods to reduce the inflammation as well just not for your whole body like a drug would. You should try the physiotherapy. I would recommend one who specializes in orthopedics and manual therapy. Best wishes

      It can be excruciating when trying to move a joint that is inflamed but I figured I was in so much pain anyway it is better to suffer a high pain for a .oment and then get relief in a day then to have continuous pain. That happened with my foot, one of my joints was just a little off kilter and that caused my foot to start the inflammation process. It was painful as anything to get it back in place but by the end of the day I could walk pretty much without pain and go on a trip that entailed a lot of walking. However, I have had treatments by physios that were less painful but also did not restore my property joint movement. A good physio therapist should know what your pain tolerance is and should also be able to determine the best treatment plan for you. So sometimes it is painful but effective. But it doesn't have to be a painful treatment every time.
