Conditions we can successfully treat:

Whiplash associated disorders - more info

Car accidents seem to be part of our daily lives these days, and can cause damage to the spine and surrounding soft tissues, these injuries may lead to secondary problems called (whiplash associated disorders or WAD) for example headaches and increased anxiety.

Most minor injuries will resolve with rest after a couple of weeks, however, some whiplash injuries can cause moderate to severe pain, with restricted movement and function. These need gentle physio techniques to improve their ability to heal. They usually respond well to treatment, depending on other underlying conditions and risk factors.

Advice on seating, driving position and carrying can be helpful in preventing your whiplash injury becoming a more chronic condition.

Back and neck pain - more info

These affect nearly everyone at some point, and are rarely caused by serious pathology. Most people make a full recovery, only needing advice and reassurance in order to remain active.

Physiotherapy is helpful if the pain is acute, radiating and lasts longer than a week, or, is preventing you from moving normally or standing straight. Highmead Physiotherapy will assess the cause and location of the problem, and treat with specific physio techniques and advice on specialised exercises and back care.

Physio can help in preventing the recurrence of painful episodes, resulting in increased confidence and improved self management. Recognising the warning signs is essential.
