Back pain is a common ailment that can significantly impact one's quality of life. Whether you're grappling with a dull ache or sharp discomfort, understanding the causes and seeking appropriate treatment is crucial. At Elite Physio & Therapy, we are dedicated to unraveling the mystery of back pain and providing personalised solutions for lasting relief.
Common Causes of Back Pain:
1. Poor Posture: Prolonged sitting or standing with improper posture can strain your back muscles and contribute to chronic pain.
2. Muscle Strain: Overexertion, lifting heavy objects, or sudden movements can lead to muscle strains and subsequent back pain.
3. Herniated Discs: The discs that cushion your spine may bulge or get inflamed, causing localised and/or referred pain down the legs.
4. Arthritis: Osteoarthritis and other forms of arthritis can affect the spine, leading to chronic back pain which typically affects those over 50 and is worse first thing in the morning, last thing at night and when the weather is cold/damp.
5. Structural Issues: Conditions like scoliosis or other structural abnormalities may contribute to persistent back pain.

Why Choose Elite Physio & Therapy?
Our clinic stands out for its commitment to patient-centered care and proven results. Here's what our satisfied clients have to say:
"Two weeks ago I leapt out of bed and screamed in agony. A searing pain started in the lower back and shot down my right leg leaving me incapable of walking or even with enough movement to get dressed without help. I was fairly sure it was a recurrence of an old injury to the sacroiliac joint which after years of intermittent misery had finally been sorted by a combination of Physio and Pilates. Two days later I was still in permanent agony; none of the usual exercises did more than give a tiny bit of relief and painkillers didn’t touch it. The doctors among family and friends insisted I needed an urgent scan but the NHS did not agree. If I was still in agony in four week’s time, I was told, I should ring again. Then I came to see Lindsey. She was able to see me next day, did a thorough consultation and examination, confirmed it was the sacroiliac joint, explained in detail what was going on and gave me a set of simple exercises to lock it back into place. One week later the agony was over and two weeks on, I am back to normal. I offered to write this testimonial because I wanted to share the remarkable ‘cure’ I have enjoyed with others who may find themselves in a similarly painful pickle. Lindsey’s mantra is: ‘Movement is medicine’. My husband and I are in our 70’s, though few people believe us. Lindsey keeps us fit and active. We enjoy long and often challenging hill and even mountain walking and, under her gentle but firm guidance, have every confidence we will still be going on walking holidays when we are 100! A grateful client!"
"My daughter has been going to Susanna as she suffers from back pain due to her having scoliosis . Susanna worked through specific exercises with my daughter, using the good range or equipment available. Also she gives her an exercise plan to do at home, in between sessions, so as to make her stronger and more flexible. Additionally Susanna did some massage, manipulation and light acupuncture to help relieve the muscle tension. Susanna is always very professional and makes my daughter feel very at ease."
"My back pain got steadily worse over 2 years until I could no longer train or run, soon even sitting or lying in bed hurt. I was told I was ‘just getting old’! Lindsey took me back to basics and gradually re-educated my movement. In just a few weeks the difference was amazing. I got stronger and more flexible so quickly – Lindsey has converted me to Pilates!”
