Back pain and Neck Pain Physiotherapy and osteopathy treatment in London
Back Pain & Neck Pain Rehabilitation
Back pain and neck pain are common problems that affect most people at some point in their life. They manifest as an ache, tension or stiffness in your back or neck. They are not generally caused by a serious condition, and are triggered by bad posture when sitting or standing, bending or lifting heavy objects incorrectly. Most cases can be successfully treated with painkillers, exercise and physiotherapy. If back pain or neck pain are treated as soon as the first symptoms arise, it will be easier to treat it before it becomes a chronic problem.

London Physiotherapy & Osteopathy Treatment for back pain and neck pain
Whether you have an acute or a chronic back or neck pain, keeping active and continuing with normal daily activities as much as possible is important. In the past, advice had been to rest until the pain eases, but most experts now agree that being inactive for long periods is bad for your back.
At Excellence Physiotherapy London, when we see a patient with back pain, we will first analyse the posture and make a full assessment of the patient’s body because back pain can be caused by the feet position or any other cause listed below. Once the cause that triggers the pain is identified, we will work on exercises that will reduce the pain long term and we will teach the patient how to change their everyday life habits (e.g. seating posture) in order to remain pain free and avoid relapse in the long run.
We have a physiotherapist and osteopath based in London who are dedicated and specialised to back and neck pain treatment at home or at any of the two Light Centre practices: London Wall near Moorgate station, in the heart of the City, or Belgravia, near Victoria station.
