backpainAbout our Physiotherapist & back pain specialist in London

Physiotherapy can be very beneficial for people suffering from back pain. Our physiotherapists specialised in back pain rehabilitation at London Home Visit Physiotherapy offer tailor made back pain treatment according to your particular needs, performed at your home in London so you don’t have to deal with travel when in pain. However, if you prefer, you can also visit us at one of the two Light Centre practices in London, in Moorgate or Belgravia.

Our spines are not designed for sitting down at a desk or in a car, or for enduring repetitive movements for several hours at a time. This is why most people will experience back pain at some point in their life.

Back pain can have many different causes

  • Accident
  • Injury by moving or twisting in an awkward manner
  • Poor posture
  • Stiffness and lack of flexibility caused by stress
  • Repetitive strain

Depending on the cause, symptoms can develop straight away, or take weeks or even months to appear. The severity of symptoms also differs and can range from tenderness and stiffness to severe pain that hinders people carrying out every day activities. They may last a few hours or days, or become a chronic issue. In most cases back pain can be treated with painkillers and rest, but for severe cases of injury and chronic back pain, surgery might be needed.

Lower Back Pain Physiotherapy Treatment London

Affecting around 1 in 3 adults in the UK each year, Lower Back Pain (LBP) is a very common disorder, with an estimated 2.5 million people seeking help from their GP about their condition[1].

However, pain is only a symptom and a similar pain can have a myriad of different origins. For example, a pain located in your lower back may originate from:

  • Muscle spams
  • Facet irritation
  • A dysfunction of an digestive organ, in which case massaging your back won’t make any difference
  • Many more mechanical or non-mechanical issues can create pain in your back, to have more information; you can call or consult our expert physiotherapist and osteopath.

To cure your Lower back pain, we need to understand from which tissue your pain comes from and what the root causes of your condition are. Therefore, for us at London Home Visit Physiotherapy, clinical reasoning (using our brain to understand your problem) is an essential part of our management.

It is composed of

  • First, a thorough study of your medical history to develop a differential diagnosis (basically, from your answers to our questions, we build several theories that can explain your problems)
  • Second, a specific examination will be performed to test these different theories. These examinations consist of a mixture of active movements (we ask you to move), passive movements (you relax and we move your joints), and other targeted tests.
  • Third, In regard of this diagnosis, we will develop a tailored treatment plan.
  • This approach allows us not only to be more efficient but also to have a treatment tailored for your specific condition and your specific needs.

We offer physiotherapy and osteopathy home visit treatment within the London area, but if you prefer to be seen at one of our London practices, you can do so either at the Light Centre Belgravia, near London Victoria station or at the light centre Moorgate, in the city of London.

We are covered by most health insurances and are Bupa recognised and axa ppp recognised
