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.
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.
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.
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.
