Disc problems in Macclesfield are treated quickly as a physiotherapist knows the importance of the spinal disc and its role in allowing for a wide range of motion in the back and neck. Once a disc loses its strength and pliability, it can be debilitating. With age for instance, the discs of the spine can dry out and they lose their shock absorption and flexibility. Then again, if a disc problem is causing nerve root pain, it is known as radicular pain caused by the inner material of the disc leaking out and touching the nerve root. An accurate diagnosis is of vital importance to determine the best treatment options. We are a small team of skilled physiotherapists who each have our own specialism. This allows us to work with people of all ages.
Physical therapy plays such an important role in disc recovery as it can offer immediate pain relief. We also advise you on how look after yourself so that you prevent further injury. In Macclesfield, disc problems are treated making use of different techniques. There is deep tissue massage, hot and cold therapy, passive treatments as well as hydrotherapy. We plan treatments tailored to your particular problem and we guide you through exercises that will certainly help with your mobility. We have an on-site rehabilitation gym as well as access to a hydrotherapy pool. Some problems will not be resolved in just one session and treatment may take a bit longer. Each case is different but we work to remove the need for an operation.
