Sport & Spine Physio Newcastle
We provide professional evidence-based sport and spine physiotherapy.
Evidence-based physiotherapy includes treatments that have been shown in clinical research to be more effective in relieving pain and improving physical activities for patients over other comparable treatments.
Our sports and spine physiotherapists review research daily and update our treatments accordingly.
We all undertake training in evidence-based treatments attending courses yearly to update our skills.
Some examples of recent research findings indicate:
- A cognitive functional approach in the management of back pain is more beneficial than manual therapy and exercise. This approach is a holistic one that takes into account all aspects that contribute to spinal pain.
- A targeted exercise program is beneficial in reducing neck pain for office workers.
- Lumbar spine discs are regenerative and can improve in height with the exercise and loading including running and lifting activities.
- Spinal fusions don't seem to be more effective for chronic back pain than conservative treatment.
Our physios integrate clinical experience with research evidence in order to make informed decisions that give patients long term pain relief from back and neck pains.
Patients can then return to doing the things they enjoy.
