Treatment of spinal injuries with or without neurological symptoms

According to Statistics Canada, 70% to 85 % of people suffer from back pain in their lifetime. For example, in Canada, the cost of low back pain is estimated between 6 and 12 billion dollars per year.

Spine pain can include neck pain, upper and lower back pain which may or may not be associated by pain in the limbs (arm or leg).

Which spine disorders can be treated in physiotherapy?

  • Herniated disc, disc bulging, degenerative disc disease
  • Foraminal stenosis
  • Osteoarthritis in the spine
  • Radiculopathy (sciatica, cervicobrachial neuralgia)
  • Stabbing or burning pain along an arm or a leg.


Depending on your physical condition, we can use different techniques, such as manual therapy, exercises, thermotherapy (heat/ice), etc.

At ABC Health Clinique, we also have a spinal decompression table that is particularly recommended for spinal related conditions.

Spinal decompression: it provides static, intermittent and cyclic distracting force to relieve pressure on structures that may be causing low back pain, neck pain or sciatica.

The spinal decompression advantage is that we can adjust the settings in order to target the precise spine segment that is hurt.

When your condition is indicated for this type of treatment, here’s how it works:

  • 30 minutes of physiotherapy treatment (including 15 minutes of heat application)
  • 30 minutes of spinal decompression
  • 15 minutes of ice application
