Back and neck pain are one of the most common problems encountered by physiotherapists.
The spine is the work horse of the body, supporting our head to our pelvis. Our lifestyles and increased sitting times lead to postural strains and pains. We treat all conditions from simple back pain, degenerative disc disease, spondylosis, sciatica, to post surgeries e.g. discectomy, laminectomy.
Our physiotherapists will carefully assess your signs and symptoms and then discuss a plan of treatment. The therapist will liaise with your GP or Consultant as required so that the best possible outcome is achieved.
Treatments for neck and back pain include, mobilisations, massage, exercises, heat, electrotherapy, Tens and postural education. We also offer “one to one” Pilates. Pilates is a form of exercise which can be suitable for those with previous neck and back problems and those that wish to improve general posture and “core stability”.
