Back Pain

Back Pain

Research shows that most people will suffer from low back pain or neck pain at some point in their life. When this happens it can be very disabling to the person concerned.

Here at South Yorkshire Physiotherapy Centre we aim to not only relieve you of your spinal pain as quickly as possible, but we also work tirelessly to give you the tools to prevent it from returning in the future. We do not try to give a short term fix, more of a long term answer to your problems.

All of our physiotherapists have a minimum of 20 years post graduate experience. At your assessment they will take a detailed history of your current symptoms and your past medical history, to help discover the root cause of your condition. This will help give you the long term answer to your problem.

Back Pain Treatment Options

Following your initial assessment your physiotherapist will discuss your likely
diagnosis with you and the possible treatment options. These may include active exercises, postural correction, manual techniques such as mobilisation or soft tissue techniques, Pilates or Hydrotherapy. If your condition is particularly painful then treatments such as electrotherapy and acupuncture may be considered at an early stage to settle the pain.

As our emphasis is on a long term answer to your symptoms we have a strong emphasis on improving core stability and muscle control. We try and make all your treatment specific to you and your needs, relating the rehabilitation to maximising your potential. This may be directly related to functional activities such as work, or more specific to your sport or other hobbies.
