    Back and neck injury treatment

Back and neck injuries can affect anyone, at any age, and can cause severe pain and impact your everyday life.

 

What causes these injuries?

Back or neck pain and injury can be caused by heavy lifting, sports, or your posture.

 

How can these injuries impact you? 

Back or neck injuries can include:
  • An ache in the lower back that becomes more intense upon movement.
  • Pain that radiates down into the buttock, thigh or lower leg.
  • Increased pain through sudden movement or from standing or sitting for long periods.
  • Numbness or tingling sensations.
  • Paralysis and loss of movement.

And, they can prevent you from carrying out physical work or participating in sports. 

 

How can these injuries be treated?

If you feel that you’re affected by an injury, you should have an initial, thorough consultation and assessment which will determine the treatment you require. The priority is to obtain a clear diagnosis so that the best treatment options can be offered.

 

How Wimbledon Clinics can help

We can provide you with a full range of services to diagnose and treat back or neck injuries – we have access to the most technologically advanced medical devices available, as well as MRI, CT and ultrasound scanning facilities.

In some cases, you may only need a combination of rest, stretching and strengthening exercises, and we can also prescribe painkilling and anti-inflammatory treatments. However, if your condition is more complex, physiotherapy, medical treatment or surgery may be required.
