Persistent back pain can be debilitating and frustrating to live with. The truth is, it is often impossible to identify the tissues causing your pain, even with a scan. For that reason, you may feel you aren’t fully believed by health professionals, or they may have told you that nothing can be done to help.
First we’ll do our level best to identify which sensitive tissues cause your pain, then we’ll find ways to offload those tissues and relieve pain.
Uncover Stiff and Weak Links
We aim to uncover those stiff and weak ‘links’ that lead to tissue overload along the kinetic chain (see article here). If he finds joint dysfunctions, Physio Chris has over 20 years’ experience of performing skillful joint and soft tissue manipulation to realign you.
Build a Bulletproof Back
You’ll be given a bespoke strength, conditioning and mobility plan to address those stiff, tight and weak areas, and leave you feeling fitter, stronger and more mobile.
Pain and pathology can often lead to faulty movement patterns. This can be a vicious circle. In turn, faulty movement patterns can increase stress on the body and lead to more pain, tightness, stiffness and weakness.
We’ll investigates your posture and movement patterns, and how they contribute to your pain. Once we know the problems, we’ll get you moving better.
Rehabilitating back pain isn’t always an easy journey, but if you’re willing to put in the time and effort, we’ll provide you with the tools to manage your back pain and get your life back on track.
The ‘Back Pain MOT’
The ‘Back Pain MOT’ with Physio Chris provides an in-depth assessment to uncover the root causes of your persistent back pain. It involves a head to toe assessment of your joint mobility, muscle flexibility, strength, stability, co-ordination and movement patterns. We aim to leave no stone unturned when it comes to piecing together your back pain puzzle.
Who is the Back Pain MOT for?
- You’re generally fit and well, but you struggle with chronic or persistent back pain
- You may have tried and failed physio, osteopathy or chiropractic in the past
- You’re NOT currently having a flare-up of your back pain (if you’re having a flare-up, your pain is severe or you’re struggling to move, book a Standard or Extended Assessment)
What to book
If you’re having a flare-up, your pain is severe, or you’re struggling to move, book in for a standard 45 minute assessment session (or 60 minute session if you have 2 or more injuries) so that we can get basic treatment under way. The ‘Back Pain MOT’ is an in-depth assessment that is best carried out when your symptoms are under control and you can move comfortably.
If your back pain is stable you can move relatively comfortably, it is best to book in for the Back Pain MOT (90 minutes). This will give us time to fully assess the painful area and all the potential underlying problems, and to get treatment and rehabilitation under way.
If you’re pain-free but have have a long history of back pain, and want to reduce your chances of getting another flare-up, book in for the Back Pain MOT (90 minutes). This will give us time to examine your whole body for any underlying weaknesses, stiff/ tight areas and movement control issues that could cause problems in the future. We will then get you started with exercises to address any potential problem areas.
