Grantham Physiotherapy Practice


Back Pain

Many episodes of back pain get better in a few days. Often by just keeping moving and taking some over the counter anti-inflammatories the problem settles. If it doesn't physiotherapy can help.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends manual therapy and stuctured exercises for non specific low back pain. We carry out a thorough examination to find out if you have non specific low back pain or if there is some other  cause of the back pain.

We explain the problem to you and can show you models and pictures to help you understand what has happened and how you can get well.

We use a range of treatments and approaches, depending on the cause of your back pain, such as manual treatment to help the pain and to allow you to move more freely, core activation and deep tissue massage.

We teach the correct exercises for you and explain how to exercise and stretch, so that you can continue to work on getting better at home.

We show you ways to manage your back pain, so that it stops being a recurring problem and you can get on with your life.
