What we treat

Click on the areas of the body to see what services we offer at Back to Fitness Physiotherapy

At Back to Fitness Physiotherapy we are specifically musculoskeletal physiotherapists. This means that we treat any condition relating to soft tissues (muscle, tendon, ligament, fascia) and the skeleton (joints, spine, fractures). Most people will come to us because they have pain and it is our job to diagnose why and determine what structures are involved. We do this by completing a thorough assessment of the patient and asking them lots of questions. A summary of what we treat can be seen by clicking on the appropriate button on the body chart.

So, anyone experiencing pain should contact us to book in for an assessment and you do not need to see your GP first in order to do this. We work in a very similar way to osteopaths and chiropractors and treat all the same things (plus more) but physiotherapists also have medical training so that we can look at the whole body. This is important because some pain can be caused by medical conditions relating to body systems and it is important that these are quickly picked up by us and referred onto the appropriate health care provider. Chiropractic treatment is considered to be a complementary therapy by the NHS.
