Spine rehabilitation physiotherapists use a variety of techniques to help patients recover from their conditions and improve their quality of life. They may use manual therapy techniques to mobilise the spine, alleviate pain, and improve flexibility. They may also use exercise and strength training to build core strength and improve posture, which can help prevent future injuries and reduce the risk of complications.
In addition to treating acute and chronic spine conditions, spine rehabilitation physiotherapists also work with patients who are recovering from spine surgery. They develop personalised rehabilitation plans that are tailored to the patient’s specific needs and goals, working closely with other members of the healthcare team to ensure the patient’s recovery is safe and effective.
