Dr. Nayna Boohla was incredible adjusting my twisted back and hips after a fall I took in the rain on holiday. She is very caring and incredibly knowledgable at chiropractic and Accupuncture. And only because of her I could continue my trip for another 3 weeks.

Yvonne is a miracle worker! I was in pain for months with lower back pain and nothing was working--went to Yvonne at Head to Toe and over time she has made my pain manageable and most days non-existent! She listened to me and we worked out a plan that included me getting back to the gym and getting off pain killers, and so far its working out brilliantly! I can actually move again and enjoy my life which frankly, didn't seem possible 6 months ago...I cannot recommend Yvonne highly enough-Thank you!

I had my first session yesterday! After years of injuring my back while working I’ve had masseuses refuse to touch it out of fear of damaging my back even more. I’ve had numbness in my arm, terrible sleeping patterns and my lower back locks up very often. Out of fear, I was nervous to try acupuncture but Nayna was so calm and made the process very relaxing. She took all the time she needed, clicking and relieving my back, neck, arms, pelvis and legs. I slept like a baby last night for the first time in ages! My back was so inflamed and I can now feel the instant relief after going only once. It is costly but so so worth it (in my opinion the expense of going to many cheaper places adds up and doesn’t have the same effect). I’m able to go about my day pain free and I’m not even taking any pain killers or anti inflammatories, I feel amazing! Thank you Nayna X

I went to Barry Murphy Mid April for physical therapy treatment due to ongoing pain in my left hip and lower back brought on from running. In short Barry was fantastic. Not only did he help alleviate symptoms he also gave me the tools and skills to ensure that I wont end up in the same place again. Thanks to Barry, I now have a much better understanding of my body and how it works and how to take care of it. Finally he's a lovely guy and completely put me at my ease.

More FAQs On Physio And Back Pain

Why Would I Need Physiotherapy For Back Pain?

Physiotherapy can be extremely beneficial for individuals suffering from back pain. Back pain is a common problem that can significantly affect one’s daily activities and quality of life. Physiotherapy aims to assess, diagnose, and treat the root cause of the pain, rather than just providing temporary relief.

Is Physio Good For Back Pain?

Physiotherapy can be a beneficial treatment for individuals suffering from back pain. It focuses on improving the functionality and mobility of the affected area through specific exercises and manual therapy techniques. One of the main advantages of physiotherapy is that it avoids relying solely on medication for pain management. Instead, it addresses the root cause of the pain and aims to strengthen the surrounding muscles to provide better support to the spine. This can lead to long-term pain relief and reduced dependency on painkillers. 

Which Is Better For Lower Back Pain Physio Or Chiropractor?

When it comes to treating lower back pain, there is no definitive answer on whether physiotherapy or chiropractic care is better. Both approaches have their strengths and can be effective in providing relief. Physiotherapy focuses on exercises and physical interventions to strengthen the muscles surrounding the lower back and improve flexibility. Chiropractic care, on the other hand, is centered around spinal manipulation and realignment to correct the alignment of the spine, thus alleviating lower back pain. The choice between the two largely depends on the individual and the nature of their specific condition. It may be beneficial to consult with both a physiotherapist and a chiropractor to see which treatment approach works best for the individual. Additionally, integrating physiotherapy and chiropractic care into a comprehensive treatment plan may yield the most effective long-term results.
