What Will My Physiotherapist Session Be Like?
Your physiotherapist will need to know about your general health, including:
- Existing medical conditions
- Any medications you take
- Symptoms you’re experiencing
- What tends to trigger these symptoms
Stretching is another exercise regime recommended to improve flexibility and reduce tension in your spine. For example, stretching your hamstring muscles can reduce stress in your lower back.
Strengthening exercises, especially involving your core muscles — abdominal muscles and the muscles in your back and around your pelvis — exercises can be helpful. General exercises seem to be equally beneficial, particularly in the long term.
