Neck and Back Care
Neck- and back pain are one of the most prevalent disorders in our society. Common causes besides injury are postural problems, pre- and postnatal conditions, overuse, physical inactivity and stress. At PhysioActive we treat all kind of spinal problems including:

Our Physiotherapists are experts in human posture and Physiology and will therefore be able to determine the source of your pain and provide an effective back treatment. The first step in treating your back- and neck complaints is to reduce pain.
Common methods we use are manual techniques, traction, massage, electrotherapy/ultrasound and heat packs. Additionally we will provide you with home exercises and postural advice for self-management strategies.
Once the pain allows you to start with active exercises we will instruct you with a program that helps you to build-up your core stability and general back strength. Core muscles are the prime stabilizers of the back and responsible for keeping an upright posture and efficient movement of the whole body. Development of strong and stable core muscles is therefore essential to recover from a neck or back injury and to prevent from recurrent back problems.
Our Physiotherapists put a strong focus on core stability training during your therapy. We also offer Core Stability Groups and Pilates. Scientific research has shown that the combination of passive and active therapy gives the best short and long term outcome in the treatment for back pain.
