Back and Neck Pain: back and neck pain can occur due to many different causes. These may include Disc injury, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, muscular strain, sacroiliac dysfunction, nerve injury, whiplash, spondylolisthesis and inflammatory arthritis to name but a few. Lower back pain probably the most common complaint presenting at Leyland Physiotherapy. 80% of people will experience lower back pain at some point in their life, the most common presentation being non-specific back pain (pain with no obvious cause). With prompt treatment and advice over 90% of patients with back pain make a full recovery within 6-8 weeks. Where there are symptoms including leg pain this is called a radiculopathy (sciatica) and can take longer to settle. We are highly skilled at assessing and recognising patients that require urgent onward referral in the rare instant that a more serious pathology is suspected or that surgery may well be required.
What people think? I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this team to prospective patients. The whole team is professional, friendly and welcoming. Michelle took a really thorough and dynamic approach to the assessment, treatment and reassessment of my condition. She left no stone unturned in seeking the root cause of the issue and adjusting my exercise plan and subsequent treatment. Pain I had experienced for several months rapidly began to ease from the first session.
Shockwave Therapy: Shockwave delivers high intensity sound waves into chronic tissue. This leads to a cascade of beneficial effects including increased blood flow, cellular activity, stimulation of collagen, dissolution of calcium and pain relief. It is THE recognised treatment of choice for chronic tendon injuries in the NICE guidance 2009. We are one of the few practices in the north west who offer this service.

Leyland Physiotherapy is located down a quiet cul de sac and so must rely partly on its reputation which does not let it down. I was given a quick appointment with a very experienced lady who identified the problem straight away. I was given an explanation and the treatment commenced straight away. I needed 3 treatments and felt completely satisfied and much better. Would not hesitate to recommend.
