Back Condition Treatments

Back Pain Can Be Scary, Especially When It Impacts Your Quality of Life.

At Platypus METT, we create an individualized treatment plan to assist in the recovery and rehabilitation of your back pain.

Without the right treatment, certain back conditions won't improve. Therefore, an accurate assessment is key. For example, sciatic pain and muscle strain both affect the lower back. However, since they involve different structures, they require different treatments.

Even if you are considering back surgery or are already waiting for your surgery appointment, you may still want to consider the Platypus METT method of back rehabilitation. We can help with pain and - in certain cases – surgery may no longer be necessary.

The Results Speak For Themselves

Fred Archibald, GP, tried many other therapies to treat the symptoms of Spinal Stenosis. Only the Platypus METT method provided lasting relief and prevented back surgery.

At 73 and having lived with Scoliosis for a long time, Larry had almost given up hope that he could normalize his posture and live without pain. His doctors were convinced that only surgery could help him.

Less than three months later, Larry’s posture had vastly improved. With the Platypus METT method, his spine was vertically repositioned by more than 10 degrees. That meant a lot less pain and more mobility for Larry.

How Platypus METT Treats Back Pain Effectively

“Strengthening your back” is more than just strengthening the muscles of your back and core. Engaging in an unspecific set of exercises without proper supervision can do more harm than good.

At Platypus METT, you will receive a complete clinical assessment. This identifies your pain process and the structures involved in it. In our professional experience, there are other things to attend to before rebuilding a strong back can start. Easing tensions, opening up scar tissue, and relaxing the overall muscle tone are important first steps. Through the use of Medical Exercise Therapy and other techniques, you are able to work towards rehabilitating your existing injury or condition.
