Back Pain Physio London

Low back pain is one of the most frequent issues that people experience – research suggests that 80% of people will experience back pain at one time or another and therefore need back pain physiotherapy London. The trouble is that once you’ve started to have back problems, they very often become recurrent. Proper back pain treatment starts with learning the real causes

Finding the Causes of Back Pain

I believe that’s because the lower back is really only designed to bend forwards and back, but it’s trapped between two areas that twist – your ribcage and your pelvis. And if one of those areas becomes twisted and stuck, then your lower back is often forced to move suboptimally. Over time, poor movement patterns become habits, and habits cause wear points and injury.

My job is to work out whether the problem is coming from your ribcage or pelvis (and if it is, what’s causing the ribcage or pelvis to be twisted?) or from your low back itself. Is it acute (in which case, I often have to treat the low back first) or can I go straight to the cause and treat that?

Each back problem has its own specific cause, and therefore the best way to treat each back may be completely different.

Back Pain Treatment London

When I treat you, we’ll start off by discussing when your back hurts: all the time, just when you’re sitting down or doing yoga, or when you’re super stressed. I then look at your posture and your movement patterns throughout your whole body, especially with regard to the activity or posture that hurts you most, in order to work out where your problem is originating from. We can then begin back pain treatment.

Once we work out what’s going on, we can put together a treatment plan. The plan will be completely individual to you: based on whether your back is the cause of your problem or whether it’s compensating for a problem elsewhere in your body, on your own goals and priorities, your diary, and how much time you’re able to devote to your recovery.

Back specialist physio - Client reviews

"The only physiotherapy worth going to. Back up and running in no time. Can't recommend highly enough. "
Colin Clark
"Had a bad back for the first time in my life, which was preventing me training. Had (I think) three appointments with Nell, who did strange things to me and gave me a «brick» and a programme of back stretches, and also told me off about my posture, which she felt was the core issue (literally). My memory of the back pain is so acute that I still have the «brick», just in case, but I've not had any issues since — and I still correct my posture if I think of Nell. Highly recommended."
Edward Reeves
"Having suffered with lower-back/sciatic pain for several years a friend recommended that I should visit Victory Health & Performance… One treatment session with Nell and I've been pain free for a month… OUTSTANDING :D"
