Spine Post-op Rehab at Physical Edge

Our expert back pain specialists can help with comfort, recovery, pain relief, and injury rehabilitation

Post-op Spine Rehabilitation: London

Spinal pain is the most common injury seen in clinical practice and the leading cause of work related absence. Research shows that in 2013 over 15 million sick days in the UK were attributed to spinal pain and 3.4 million people (15% of the population) were forced to take more than a month off work due to back related symptoms.

28 Million people took time off work due to Back Pain in 2018
The condition affects people in all age groups but the over-50s are worst hit




Back pain can be very debilitating, and there are numerous alternatives for pain relief and rehabilitation including spinal surgery, though this is recommended as a last resort. The team at Physical Edge will work with you to determine the best rehabilitation for your specific symptoms, and if required, we can help you select an appropriate surgeon and manage your post-operative rehabilitation.

The main determining factors for surgery are the gravity of injury, duration and severity of the pain, and impact on work and lifestyle. Whilst one should not opt for surgery prematurely, where spinal surgery is considered necessary, undue delay should be avoided, to ensure the procedure lends itself to the most effective post-operative recovery.

The Best Possible Rehabilitation

Here at Physical Edge we understand the appropriate rehabilitation protocols for different types of surgery.  Our team of clinicians who specialise in prehabilitation and post-operative rehabilitation have years of experience and understand the physical and emotional support needed and are on hand to give you expert care.

At Physical Edge we go the extra mile to provide the best possible rehabilitation for you, so that you are active and mobile as soon as appropriate. Our offering includes close associations with leading surgeons in London; being at the cutting edge of research and surgical techniques and time invested discovering what is new and what works best for rehabilitation to deliver your optimum results. 

Optimum Post-Operative Rehabilitation Blueprint

As part of our unique pioneering approach, the team at Physical Edge have created the "Optimum Post-Operative Rehabilitation Blueprint". We understand a team approach, including patient contributions, is required for best results after surgery, and using this blueprint our team specialises in prehabilitation and post-operative recovery and offer a clear pathway to get back to an active lifestyle.

What does a consultation at our POst-Op Spine clinic involve?

When you get in touch with the Physical Edge team, we'll start by finding a consultation time that works around your diary. We are open before, during, and after standard working hours - and if that doesn't work for you, we can arrange weekend appointments too.

When you get here, your consultation and assessment will take place in our comfortable and private treatment room. You'll be able to talk about your issue with one of our expert back pain specialists, and they'll tell you about the kinds of treatments we offer and what they think will be of most benefit.

We'll aim to start your therapy in this same session where possible - so it's a good idea to come in sports clothing. Don't worry if you're coming straight from the office though - you're welcome to change in our private changing area.

I went to see Rhys for an adductor issue I was having and noticed a huge difference almost instantly. His friendly and systematic approach gave me a sense of trust - through some exercises and therapy the issue is solved. I couldn’t recommend Rhys enough!
Rhys has navigated me through injury avoidance and quick recovery so that I have managed to hit my Ironman targets. This year his support through an injury and recovery means I will still get to race once again… thanks Rhys

Rhys Chong is both highly professional and personable. He has provided effective physio on my fractured shoulder and given me invaluable advice on managing a long standing foot drop condition. I would definitely recommend his services to friends and colleagues.

I can’t recommend Physical Edge enough. I’ve been working with Rhys over the past few months and if you want someone who genuinely cares about your well-being and wants the very best for you, he’s your guy. I wouldn’t look anywhere else.

Rhys is a great physio. I had a knee injury brought on by running and Rhys was very patient and diligent to help me on the road to recovery. From exercises, to sports massage, to acupuncture Rhys showed genuine drive to get my knee better and it worked! Highly recommended.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Rhys Chong, physiotherapist. I was thoroughly impressed with his level of professionalism, expertise, and kindness. From the moment I walked into his office, I felt welcomed and at ease. Rhys took the time to listen to my concerns whilst attempting to understand my situation. He didn't rush through our sessions or try to give me a quick fix, but instead, took a thoughtful and thorough approach to addressing the root cause and concentrating on finding a solution/ programme to get stronger .

Being a specialist PT I have worked with Rhys and some of the Physical Edge team for many years now. Rhys himself is one of the most knowledgeable physios I’ve ever worked with and I have no hesitation in recommending him to my clients. He is incredibly detailed and his feed back to me is invaluable in maximising patients rehab and recovery. 100% recommend him

I went to Rhys in the lead up to running the London Marathon suffering from several issues and injuries to my feet and ankle. Rhys was highly professional and very thorough, he really took the time to ask questions and identify the problem accurately and gave me clear exercises and instructions on what steps to take in order for me to be able to run the race safely. I felt reassured by his advice and he was also at hand to guide me between appointments if I had any further questions. Thankyou again for a great service. Highly recommend.
