How we can help you
The most important part of our assessment is listening to your story; we aim to find out how pain is affecting your life and the factors that aggravate and ease your pain. By building an exact profile, we can tailor a programme that aims to improve function, restore comfort and lead to faster recovery. Treatment approaches such as manual therapy, dry needling and heat may be used to treat your initial pain. However, for long-term results, education around lifestyle factors and exercise are key. Typically you will be given a tailored exercise programme to do at home; we will encourage you to follow this as it will greatly enhance the speed and efficacy of your recovery.
The UK Chartered Society of Physiotherapists has an excellent back pain section on their website which covers the topic in great detail. Here you will find evidence-based facts, videos and guidance to help you overcome your back pain.
