Physiotherapy for Back & Neck Pain

We offer a compassionate approach combined with the most advanced physiotherapy techniques to help you regain mobility and live free from back or neck pain.

Understanding Back and Neck Pain

Back and neck pain are among the most common reasons our patients seek physiotherapy. These types of pain can dramatically affect every aspect of life, making even simple tasks challenging. At Sheffield Physiotherapy, we identify the root causes of your discomfort, ensuring a thorough understanding before preparing a targeted treatment strategy.

What Causes Back and Neck Pain?

Back and neck pain can arise from a variety of factors. For many, it is the result of poor posture, prolonged sedentary lifestyle, injury, or wear and tear associated with ageing. These pains can also stem from more complex conditions such as herniated discs, arthritis, sciatica or a sports injury.

Symptoms To Watch For

Common symptoms include persistent ongoing pain and soreness, sharp pains during specific movements, stiffness that restricts the range of motion, and pain that radiates to other parts of the body. Recognising these signs early is key to effective treatment and preventing further complications.

The Impact on Quality of Life

Chronic back and neck pain doesn’t just affect your physical health; it also impacts your emotional and mental well-being. It can hinder your ability to perform daily tasks, diminish work productivity, and restrict your participation in recreational activities.

Our Treatment Approach

At Sheffield Physiotherapy, we combine clinical expertise with a personalised treatment plan to address your back and neck pain. From your first consultation to the final session, our goal is to provide relief and prevent future issues through a multifaceted approach tailored specifically for you.

Free Initial Consultation

Your treatment journey at Sheffield Physiotherapy begins with a free 20-minute assessment. Our experts will conduct a detailed evaluation, to identify the source of your pain and ensure physiotherapy is right for you.

Custom Treatment Plans

Based on your unique condition, we develop a tailored treatment plan that may include a combination of the following therapies:

  • Manual Therapy: Techniques such as massage, mobilisation, and manipulation to relieve pain and improve function.
  • Exercise Therapy: Customised exercises designed to strengthen muscles, increase flexibility, and reduce strain on the spine.
  • Pain Relief Techniques: Applications of heat, ice, ultrasound, or shockwave to reduce pain and inflammation.
  • Education and Advice: Guidance on posture, ergonomics, and lifestyle adjustments to prevent future pain.

Continual Monitoring and Adjustment

The effectiveness of our back pain treatment is continually monitored, with adjustments made as needed to ensure the best outcomes. Our goal is to not only alleviate your current pain but also to equip you with the tools and knowledge for long-term spinal health.

Advanced Techniques and Technologies

We utilise the latest advancements in physiotherapy to enhance your recovery from back pain:

Theraflex (bionic mobilisation)

Theraflex treatment is a form of bionic mobilisation for the spine. It gives the physiotherapist the ability to progressively restore movement of the spine wherever it has become restricted, relaxing tight muscles and helping to relieve trapped nerves.

IDD Therapy (spinal decompression)

IDD Therapy is the number one non-invasive spinal disc treatment, for people suffering with back or neck pain which has proved challenging to improve with standard physiotherapy, osteopathy or chiropractic treatment.

MLS Laser Therapy

Therapeutic Laser when applied to inflamed or damaged tissues helps to accelerate the body’s natural healing process making it an ideal treatment for sports injuries.
