Do you suffer from ongoing back pain? Can you remember a time when your back hurt so much, you thought you’d done some serious structural damage?
Statistics show that approximately 90% of the population will suffer lower back pain at some point in their lives.
Our sedentary lifestyles puts enormous strain on the intricate structures in our lower backs, coupled with the fact that our sedentary lifestyles slow down our circulatory processes, hence leading to slow and delayed healing once injury has happened.
Physiotherapy can help you recover faster, provide you with the necessary skills to prevent recurrence, and help you through a process of strengthening the muscles that help to protect and support the lower back and pelvis.
Local cryotherapy can accelerate the healing processes even further and studies suggest by up to 50%. It increases the microcirculation by up to 400% and has a powerful pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effect which is completely natural, literally enhancing the body’s own potential to heal itself.
