You may have heard about the biopsychosocial model of treatment for low back disorders. This takes into account your lifestyle factors, such as sleep, stress and exercise, as well as your thoughts and beliefs about your condition. There is good evidence to support this model for low back pain. However, it is our belief that the “bio” element of this model is not thoroughly investigated in the clinical assessment, which means that certain structures within the body that can contribute to back pain are missed.We have a different approach to fixing low back pain, which involves a whole body assessment.
Our approach is based on a growing body of evidence that suggests impairments / dysfunctions (muscle tension, joint stiffness, nerve tension, altered movement patterns) in remote regions of the body can contribute to pain in your back.
This is called the Regional Interdependence model of musculoskeletal pain, and it is why we do a whole body examination.
We also test for neural tension because we know that muscles will guard or tense up to protect nerves. If the nerve part of your condition is not fixed first, then results will not hold and the process of fixing you takes much longer.
We also know from recent neuroscience research that pain is an output signal from the brain, and that pain is not necessarily in the tissues, ie the cause of the pain may not be at the site of the pain. We use a 20 point checklist to find the cause of your pain in a systematic manner, also taking into account psycho-social factors, and using a number of clinical tests to work out what areas in your body are interconnected. Once we have found the cause or main driver of your pain, we treat that to 100% and teach you how to manage this long term to prevent recurrence of your symptoms.
How long will it take to solve my condition? It is a 7 step process. If we complete all stages of the checklist within this process we get to your good result in 90% of cases within 3-5 hrs of treatment and testing. Your “good result” is your functional goals, ie whatever you would like to be able to do but cannot currently do because of your back condition. This process is all about what you want to achieve. And if we can’t help you, we’ll find someone who can.
We are very enthusiastic about using this new methodology, called the Ridgway Method, and know that it gives our clients great results(just check out our Google reviews). It also gives us a lot of satisfaction knowing that we are helping people who have struggled with their problem for some time. We simply want to help as many people as we can, because as Physios we believe that no one needs to put up with pain if it can be treated.
