Back pain is non-discriminatory; it affects people of all ages and from all backgrounds and is one of the main reasons for work-related sickness absence in the UK.
Aside from causing sickness absence, back pain can be psychologically draining with pain ranging from mild discomfort to acute sudden pain and more chronic long-term symptoms. Like most other ailments, early diagnosis and treatment is key to achieving a speedy recovery from back pain and preventing further damage.
We typically treat back pain such as:

How Physit Can Help
We will arrange for a Physiotherapist to visit you at a venue of your choosing.
We will conduct a full assessment to understand more about your symptoms, lifestyle and any aggravating factors, such as your line of work. Physically, we will examine your posture, gait and range of movement to diagnose the source of your back pain. From here, a treatment programme will be designed and tailored to address your exact symptoms. This may include self-management exercises or hands-on therapy, including joint mobilisation and soft tissue release.
We provide rapid assessment, diagnosis and treatment to optimise your recovery.
Prevention is Better than Cure
With a back injury, prevention is better than cure! We provide education around exercises and stretches which you can practice to self-manage your symptoms. We will advise you about safe lifting, posture, weight and lifestyle that will empower you to make appropriate changes to prevent future injury.
