That is why it is so important that you find someone you trust with the right experience to get you back on track as quickly as possibly. Our expert Spinal Team is led by Nigel Wilman.
All EMPC's dedicated Spinal Physiotherapists have undertaken post graduate training and qualifications and are exceptionally experienced in this field. You can be confident you will put yourself in a safe pair of hands here.
Some will be severe and some will be prolonged or recurrent. Severity of back pain is not necessarily a good indicator of damage. Some people can have very severe pain and little evidence of damage, whilst others can have evidence of major damage but very little pain. However, 95% of all cases we see at EMPC, however severe the pain, are what are called 'simple mechanical back pain'. This means that the vast majority of even the most severe back pain, will respond to good physiotherapy. Timely physiotherapy and exercise advice is what is recommended by the Royal College of General Practitioners and the National Clinical Standards Advisory Group on the Management of Back Pain.
Physiotherapy treatment for back and neck pain at EMPC may involve a combination of spinal manipulation, soft tissue manipulation, acupuncture, therapeutic exercise and movement advice. Importantly, we will help to identify the cause of your back or neck pain in order to provide you with self management strategies.
Physiotherapists at EMPC are all trained and experienced in spinal manipulation and the latest spinal treatment approaches. We also specialise in postural rehabilitation and Pilates. Ask your physiotherapist about postural rehabilitation and personal exercise plans. These are an important part of full recovery from back pain.
