Spinal Stenosis

How we can treat Spinal Stenosis:

Most pain related to spinal stenosis will respond quickly with the correct physiotherapy intervention. Treatment will be focused around reducing spasm and increasing vertebral movement. This is effective for acute and chronic pain and will also reduce any numbness, pins and needles, tingling or other neural symptoms that are sometimes present with spinal stenosis. Improvements should be experienced after your first physiotherapy session.

At Z10 Physiotherapy, we use a combination of innovative treatment techniques learnt from world class international physiotherapists. Treatment will include:

  • Mobilisations with Movement (MWM) to increase the gap between the vertebrae for the nerve to travel through  
  • Dry Needling to decrease tight muscles that may pull and torque the spine worsening symptoms
  • Soft tissue massage to improve muscle tone and decrease pain
  • Pilates based exercises to improve posture and strengthen the muscles around the spine
  • Biomechanic adjustments to place the pelvis in a more suitable position to further gap the opening
  • Orthotics to reduce the stress on the lower back
  • Stretches to improve flexibility
