Back pain Specialist Physiotherapy
We treat a wide range of back and neck problems, most of which can be fixed with a good course of specialist spinal physiotherapy.
The common problems we see are: Back pain, Sciatica, Neck pain, trapped nerves, slipped or bulging discs, whiplash, osteoarthritis, spondylo-lisis/listhesis, facet joint injury or inflammation, post surgery rehab, e.g. Laminectomy, fusion, microdiscectomy
Most back problems can result from a range of things, including;
- poor posture, sitting or standing.
- lack of muscle balance, or stiffness. Some muscles may be weak and loose, while others are overactive and tight.
- Underlying stiffness.
- Trauma or a sports injury.
While an acute episode of back pain can ease quickly, some require treatment to prevent a longstanding problem developing.
The way we treat back and neck pain, is to identify the cause and then treat both the pain and the cause. We use a combination of manual therapy – to loosen stiff joints or tight muscle, ligament or fascia – and specific exercise to restore the required flexibility and strength balance of the spine. We educate you to develop a better posture or lifting pattern and by improving muscle tone and increase overall fitness. Most patients we see get better in just a few sessions, with only rare cases requiring surgery or injections. However if we feel you need a scan we can arrange one for you on the day.
