Assessment for Back Pain Physiotherapy at Westmead

At Recovery Rehab, Westmead, Principal Physiotherapist Sujanya Iyengar, begins the assessment process for Back Pain by attentively listening and setting clear treatment goals. She starts by doing a whole-body assessment from head-to-toe of nerves, muscles, joints, spine, flexibility, and strength to identify any underlying biomechanical problems. She then compiles a comprehensive list of potential causes and systematically tests each one to determine the most effective treatment, aiming for substantial improvement (30-50%). Ultimately, she identifies the primary contributing factor, often referred to as the ‘driver,’ in the patient’s condition.
This enables her to create a tailored treatment plan to relieve your Back pain and improve your functional mobility.
