WHAT WE DO

Spinal Problems

Back and neck pain are extremely common musculoskeletal conditions that physiotherapists treat on a daily basis.  There are many causes, some of which can result in pain spreading into your extremities (arm or leg).  

At Physiokinetic, we take a holistic approach to the management of spinal pain.  This involves a detailed assessment which is designed to provide an accurate diagnosis and timescales for recovery.  We also want to know if there are any specific aims you might have in terms of your recovery (is it just to be painfree, to be able to work or to get a new P.B. time in the London Marathon?)    

Treatment is focussed on alleviating symptoms as well as addressing the underlying causes so as to prevent recurrence.  Our aim is to resolve your pain, restore your function and prevent recurrence so you can get back to doing the things you want and need to do! 

Below are listed some of the types of spinal pain that we treat at Physiokinetic:

  • Prolapsed disc, sometimes known as a ‘slipped disc’
  • Nerve root injury, sometimes known as a ‘trapped nerve’
  • Facet joint dysfunction
  • Spondylitis
  • Spondylolisis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Arthritis
  • Bone Stress Injuries
  • Post-Natal pain
  • Postural problems

Treatment techniques

Our team have a variety of treatment methods at their disposal.  This includes manual therapy techniques (spinal mobilisation & manipulation techniques, myofascial release techniques, massage), exercise provision (stretches/strength programs), correction of postural and movement dysfunction, acupuncture, general and more specific (ergonomic) spine care advice.

SuperSpines

We also run our own rehabilitation class called ‘SuperSpines’, specifically for people who have suffered from spinal pain in the past or who are in the process of being treated/recovering from a recent episode.  Participation is subject to an individual meeting our inclusion criteria for this class.
