Back pain is a common condition and the leading cause of work absence in the UK. It is often not possible to identify the cause but back pain can occur anywhere down the spine from neck to hips.
Physiotherapy can be employed effectively to swiftly relieve the pain and restore function to affected areas.
Treatments can include manual therapy to manipulate the spine and massage to relief muscle tension while some patients can be directed to group exercise classes and a programme of stretches and exercises.
Skilled physiotherapists provide guidance on how to stay pain free and prevent further back pain.
Physical and occupational physiotherapy is effective advice across a range of neurological conditions and injuries such as stroke (or mini stroke), multiple sclerosis, brain injury and tumors, degenerative illness such as Parkinson’s disease, falls and damage to the nervous system.
Physiotherapy for respiratory conditions is a specialized discipline that treats disorders such as chronic bronchitis, asthma, emphysema, cystic fibrosis and a wide range of lung and breathing problems.
