Physiotherapy management

Physiotherapy management:

• Core exercises: To take the pressure off the spine
• Extension exercises: to improve the strength of the extensor muscles of the hips and spine and in improving the spine’s mobility.
• Balance training: Hydrotherapy and sensomotoric training on unstable devices to promote walking in several variations and improving coordination skills.
• Isometric and isotonic exercises: They help in strengthening the main muscles of the trunk and in stabilizing the spine.
• Stretching exercises: To reduce the extension forces on the lumbar spine due to the tightening of muscles or weakness. 
• Cardiovascular exercises: to maintain overall health.
• Stabilization exercises: to re-train the deep core muscles and maintaining their strength. 

• Maintaining a good posture while sitting, sleeping, driving, and walking. 
• Following correct lifting techniques.

• myofascial release, or massages that help restore muscle tone and improve circulation

• microcurrent therapy, which uses low-level electric currents to reduce swelling, inflammation, and pain
• applying heat compresses for pain

Improving nutrition:
• Your doctor may prescribe a diet rich in Vitamins A, C, and D and minerals like copper, manganese, zinc, etc.
• Reduction in excess weight automatically reduces the stress on the spine


Maintain a healthy diet and weight.
• Strengthen your core muscles.
• Practice good posture when sitting and standing.
• Avoid straining the back by hyperextension or by placing too much weight on it.
• Refrain from smoking. Tobacco can cause joint damage over time.
