Restoration and stability
Many types of back and spinal pain are common in modern society. 80% of the UK population suffers from spinal pain in their lifetime. People often develop ongoing back pain and stiffness as a result of not getting the right treatment or advice. Our Physios are experts in diagnosing and managing these imbalances to restore a fully functioning, strong, mobile and healthy spine.
What we treat
- disc-related pain
- neck pain
- facet joint issues
- rib pain
- nerve pain
- sprains and strains
- inflammation and wear of joints
- spinal stenosis
- radiculopathy (pinched nerve)
- mechanical and postural pain
How does it work?
Pain can originate from a range of structures such as muscles, nerves, joints and ligaments from issues such as posture, injury or abnormalities like scoliosis. These issues can be managed with Physiotherapy by reducing pain, increasing stability and improving movement.
Treatments may include
- qualified advice on early treatment and suitable activity
- mobilisation Physio to promote and restore healthy movement
- manipulative Physio to target the specific point of restriction and pain
- stabilisation exercises for deep back, abdominal and pelvic floor muscles (which support and balance your back)
- tailored daily exercises and stretches to improve muscle flexibility, strength and endurance
- advice on using appropriate equipment, conditions and infrastructure at work to prevent back pain
- advice on maintaining healthy postural habits to prevent back pain
What to expect
You may be asked about when your pain started, whether you’ve had any x-rays or scans and what kind of issues you have. We may also ask about your bladder, bowel or sensation in your legs. Your Physiotherapist will check your range of movement, core strength, pelvic stability and the joints in your spine – you may be asked to remove your shirt so they can see how your spine moves.
