Series of six education, exercise and acupuncture sessions
At Spire Southampton Hospital we now offer a new Physiotherapy Back Pain Rehabilitation Programme. This new service with our physiotherapy department is for people who either suffer from chronic back pain, if previous treatment has failed or if you are looking to control your pain before or after surgery and want to help with recovery.
Individually tailored exercise and education programmes to increase strength and reduce pain.
This new programme consists of six one hour sessions with the first session consisting of approximately 30 minutes discussion with the specialist physiotherapist to find out more about your condition. Using this information a programme will be created specifically for you.
At each session our specialists will work with you on your individually tailored exercise programme to build the strength in your back. Different topics will be covered each week, from manual handling and how to lift correctly to relaxation, gradually re-training you to use the correct techniques to increase strength and reduce pain.
Our specialist physiotherapists have been trained in acupuncture and exercise therapy specifically for treating patients with chronic or long term back pain.
You do not need to have private medical insurance and if you are paying for your own treatment we do not require a GP referral. Please contact us directly to book your appointment with the physiotherapy department on 023 8076 4348.
If you are using your private medical insurance, please contact your insurance company before booking any treatment.
