We all know that pain at the back can sometimes jump right out at you when you wake up in the morning or slightly creep up on you over time.
Our physiotherapists are here to sort this out for you quickly and expertly.
Many of us experience some forms of back pain during their lifetime, often leading to time off work and some degree of disability; the symptoms can vary widely from a slight twinge to severe pain at times. Fortunately, the majority of these can be treated conservatively with a pseronalised physiotherapy programme.
We start by listening to you
Our physiotherapists will perform a detailed assessment to establish the underlying cause of pain and dysfunction.
We begin with a conversation, where we learn when your pain started; we go through your medical history, and any other diagnosis, as well as any information that you may provide.
We also conduct a detailed movement assessment of your spine, and particular around the problem areas. We also look at other parts of systems to ensure that they aren’t contributing towards the pain.
We then formulate a treatment plan that may include manual therapy, stretching and flexibility exercises, muscle strengthening and core stability training. Other types of treatment such as acupuncture or dry needling may also be used to alleviate symptoms and normalise tissue.
The aims of the programme are to reduce pain in the short term, to return to normal function and sports in the mid-term, and to provide strategies to manage/minimise recurrences of pain in the long term.
