Back pain is the leading cause of injury worldwide. Physiotherapy and exercise is one aspect of the management of acute and chronic back pain. Most back pain will resolve within 6 weeks, in the early stages you should consult a physiotherapist. People often fear movements such as twisting and bending but research shows movement in the early stages of back pain. Back pain should not stop you exercising and in fact, studies show that continuing with weight training can help get you better sooner. Our physiotherapists can help you pick appropriate weights and exercises to continue with during your episode of back pain. It is also important to note pain does not always equal damage, modern day physiotherapists realise this and that is why we at physio4life take a holistic approach to help people understand why they have pain.
One in three people experience shoulder pain in their lives. The incidence of shoulder pain increases with age. Shoulder pain can be debilitating and can lead to loss of function of the muscles around the shoulder. This in turn can lead to altered movement patterns, which then causes more overload on structures around the shoulder. Physiotherapy plays a huge role in the prevention and treatment of shoulder pain. Physiotherapy and exercise have been shown to be as effective as surgery for shoulder impingement syndrome and rotator cuff tears. You should attempt physiotherapy for a minimum of 12 weeks. This means regularly carrying out exercise and getting treatment advice for how to progress your exercises. If improving in this initial 12 weeks you need to continue strengthening exercises for anywhere between 1-2 years depending on your problem. All our consultants are highly trained specialists with a wealth of experience in treating a range of shoulder problems.
We regularly get asked, “Is it possible to change my running technique if this is the way I have run all my life?”. The simple answer is YES! We can use some subtle cues to make a big difference to your technique.

Where it can become slightly more complex is making sure you are able to adapt to this alteration, including the progression and structuring of your training methods. In our Running Clinic at Physio4Life this is a service we provide for you.
