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
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. 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.
