Here at BWT we treat a wide range of back and neck problems, most of which can be fixed with a good course of specialist spinal physiotherapy.
The common problems we see are: Back pain, Sciatica, Neck pain, trapped nerves, slipped or bulging discs, whiplash, osteoarthritis, facet joint injury or inflammation plus post surgery rehab, e.g. Laminectomy, fusion, microdiscectomy
Most back problems can result from a range of things, including;
- poor posture, sitting or standing.
- lack of muscle balance, or stiffness. Some muscles may be weak and loose, while others are overactive and tight
- Trauma or a sports injury.
- An underlying medical condition
While an acute episode of back pain can ease quickly, some require treatment to prevent longstanding problems developing.
We will identify the cause and then treat both the pain and the cause. Using a combination of manual therapy – to loosen stiff joints or tight muscles, ligaments or fascia – and specific rehab to restore the required flexibility and strength balance of the spine. We will educate you to develop a better posture or technique by improving muscle tone and increasing overall fitness. Most patients we see get better in just a few sessions, with only rare cases requiring surgery or injections. However if we feel you need a scan we can arrange one for you on the day.
