    Back and neck injury treatment

Back or neck injuries can affect you at any age, sometimes causing you severe pain and impacting everyday life. They can often prevent you from carrying out physical work or participating in sports. We can provide you with a full range of services to diagnose and treat back or neck injuries.

You may be suffering back or neck pain as a result of an injury from heavy lifting, some sports or even your posture. If so, you should have an initial consultation, where one of our team will make an assessment and determine what treatment you require. 

In some cases, you may only need a combination of rest plus stretching and strengthening exercise. If your condition is more complex, then physiotherapy, medical treatment or surgery may be required. Whichever route is best for you, we will support you along each step to your recovery.

Signs to look out for 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.

These are just some of the indications of back or neck injuries and related conditions. You can rest assured that:

  • We have access to MRI, CT and ultrasound scanning facilities.
  • We can prescribe painkilling and anti-inflammatory treatments.
  • Our spine surgeons have extensive experience in treating complex problems and have pioneered some spinal surgery techniques.
  • Our expert team will work closely with you to tailor and monitor treatment.

If you row or play rugby then you may find these sports – that do place a high strain on the back – may contribute to your back or neck problem. Runners, cyclists, and golfers, can also suffer back pain.

Painful conditions can include:

  • Low Back.
  • Sciatica.

If your injury is sports-related, our team of sports physicians and physiotherapists has the experience and expertise to help get you back out playing again as soon as possible.

If surgery is required, our surgeons:

  • Will use some of the latest spinal surgical techniques.
  • Work alongside our expert physiotherapists and sports physicians.
  • Ensure you gain comprehensive care and treatment.

Our team is available to provide you with the highest standards in orthopaedic care and to help you enjoy the best quality of life. To speak to us about your back or neck injury, please contact us via phone on 020 8629 1889email info@wimbledonclinics.co.uk or use the form on this page.
