Treatment
“Physical therapists are educated in understanding the interaction of all your body parts. Their hands-on approach begins with examination, diagnosis and treatment of the immediate problem. Then they teach you how to take care of yourself by showing you how to do exercises and how to use your body properly to gain strength and mobility and prevent recurring injury. You’ll find them advising on proper posture and body motion in the work place, treating injuries, consulting on fitness, and administering physical therapy in the home. Today physical therapists provide help for every part of the body to everyone from infants to the elderly.”
PT Magazine, October 1999

Back Pain
Your central nervous system consists of the brain and spinal cord. Protecting the spinal cord are vertebrae (bones), protected in turn by discs made up of a gelatin-like substance. Functioning as a shock absorber to the bones, discs undergo tremendous amounts of stress, often resulting in a herniation or "bulging" of the disc. This is the most common cause of lower back pain.

Another common cause of back pain is disc degeneration, caused by a drying out of the disc area. Over the course of time, or through injury, dried discs will crack and induce pressure on nerves. The result is extreme muscle tension and back pain.

North Bay has the latest training and equipment technology available to treat your back pain safely and effectively.
