Back/Neck pain or stiffness is one of the well-known complaints of  patients to their doctors. It is a fact of modern life that more and more of us spend hours every day sitting behind the wheel of their trucks, cars or at a desk in front of a computer.

Massage therapy relieves back pain by undoing painful muscle spasms. Increased blood flow  nourishes the cells of the muscles and speeds tissue repair.  Increased circulation of lymphatic system flushes out waste products and reduces inflammation. Also it softens and breaks up scar tissue and adhesion (many old back injuries leave scar tissue that can contract and cause back pain). Moreover, Massage therapy induces relaxation, lowers blood pressure levels, lowers stress hormone levels, reduces anxiety and depression. All those make  massage therapy a good choice of treatment for chronic Back/Neck pain. That breaks the vicious cycle of pain producing tension and tension producing pain. acu_iconAcupuncture is based on the belief that life energy flows through the body along pathways called meridians. Different meridians correspond to different body parts. If the flow of energy is interrupted, health problems can result.

Acupuncture is used to restore the flow of energy to restore health.Scientists are still trying to figure out exactly how acupuncture works. One theory explains that acupuncture stimulates the production of endorphins (body’s own pain killers) or other chemicals that affect the nervous system. However, the actual pain relieve mechanism of acupuncture is unknown. The only thing that is important for people who have experienced pain relief from acupuncture is that it works, not why it works. That is why growing number of physicians are referring patients for acupuncture treatment.

Osteopathic manipulative treatments may be effective to treat back and neck pain caused by  postural problems.

We also use TEN -  Trans-cutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (Trans cutaneous means through the skin) if recommended by Physiotherapist. Low voltage electric impulses are transmitted through the skin to the nerves to provide stimulation to sensory nerve endings. TENS is used for pain relief. TENS is believed to reduce the sensitivity of the nerves or block the transmission of pain signals to the brain. TENS may also stimulate the release of endorphins (natural pain-relieving chemicals). Electrodes are placed on the skin at the site of the pain. Low-voltage electrical impulses pass through the skin to the nerves, stimulating the nerves. TENS is used to treat pain caused by a variety of conditions. It is used to treat acute or chronic pain, sometimes for acute post-surgical pain. Lower back pain and pain from arthritis may be the most common reasons for using TENS. Generally, to get a long-lasting effect we recommend come to the treatments twice a week for 4 – 6 weeks. After each treatment we will reassess you condition to measure our progress and change the treatment plan if necessary.
