Mechanical back pain
At Propruis Therapies, we will fully assess your injury or mechanical pain problems and evaluate postural muscle imbalances and mechanical misalignment.
Treatment begins with a consultation, during which a plan will be proposed and your full agreement obtained, while ensuring that you also have the opportunity to ask any questions or have a discussion with your GP before proceeding.
During treatments, we will use a variety of techniques that are appropriate to your needs and to complement the treatment, we can advise you on appropriate exercise and stretches. While simply restoring health to muscle and tissues, by realigning muscle and structure, allows for an improved range of movement. Kim and her team see the most dramatic results in clients who underpin remedial massage therapy with prescriptive physical exercises, which target their muscle imbalances.
Continuing to repeat an incorrect, learnt pattern of movement in everyday life, that have helped create the mechanical issues and damage, only ensures that the problems will be ongoing. Generally, we become desensitised. Only when hungry, thirsty, tired, stressed, or in pain or discomfort are we alerted to a problem, while many other, more subtle messages are not picked up. Usually, our automatic response to pain is to adopt a ‘protection mode’, reducing our range of movement and activity, while reaching for pain-killers and looking for help from clinical practitioners. These are all understandable reactions. However, what about long-term improvement?
Kim and her team advocate specific exercise, using controlled, self-manipulation methods, where skills are learnt to help heal ourselves. These methods allow us to build a relationship with our response pathways, using proprioception techniques which change muscle memory, empowering us to prevent mechanical stress, degenerative skeletal problems, pain and disease. Why would anyone not want to invest in that?

“A serious lower back injury resulted in my being 3 months in a brace but the cause of my continued pain had never been identified – just stretching exercises to do. Following an assessment with Kim, she identified the problem and 4 months on, after following a structured programme, I have an almost full range of movement and no pain.”
