The BWT Spinal clinic provides patients with the very best in total back care. Our dedicated team of spinal physiotherapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, clinical Pilates and Pilates Institute instructors along with massage therapists specialise in providing an assessment, diagnosis, treatment and ongoing stability programme. From a simple nagging backache, debilitating chronic sciatica or if have just undergone spinal injections or surgery we have a programme to suit you.
Referrals from GPs, Rheumatologists or Spinal Orthopaedic surgeons are sent directly to the Spinal Clinic but many patients self refer to be offered a same day appointment and the benefit of speedy recovery.
The secret to our success lies in the team’s ability to quickly identify the patients’ underlying problems and provide the most appropriate therapy without delay. Often a combination of treatment approaches is utilised for the best results.
Following a detailed assessment, the therapist will be able to provide a treatment programme to quickly settle symptoms, correct any underlying biomechanical issues, and finally to provide an ongoing exercise programme to ensure good back care practice to prevent any further recurrence.
In addition to the healing hands of the physiotherapist, patients of BWT are able to take advantage of a variety of approaches to settle their symptoms.
• The very latest advances in cold therapy have brought us the Game Ready TM System which is an effective aid in the treatment of musculo-skeletal injuries, back pain and after surgery.
• Acupuncture is particularly effective for back pain and can be administered alongside your manual therapy by your physiotherapist or by one of our trained Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncturists.
Much of the research surrounding back pain over the years has focused on ‘core stability muscles’ and their role in preventing and remedying lower back problems. We have a dedicated team of Physiotherapists with Pilates training and Pilates instructors who are able to offer individual sessions, group sessions (reformer or mat based floor work).
We can also work with you at the prestigious West Hants Club offering hydrotherapy as well as making use of the fantastic state-of-the-art gym equipment. We have an on-site clinic too, which enables us to offer physiotherapy and massage therapy treatments as well as being able to take advantage of the great facilities.
