What should I do if I have back pain?
Anyone suffering with back pain, including referred pain to the legs or arms, can book a consultation with one of our therapists to discuss your current issues, lifestyle and medical history.
What happens if I need a scan?
If a clinical need is identified for an MRI scan during your initial assessment, your physical therapist will be able to help you with this. An MRI scan, and subsequent follow up appointment with your therapist to discuss the results, can be arranged through the Imaging Team and Physical Therapy Team.
An MRI scan is usually taken of one part of the body but occasionally, to help with diagnosis if there is referred pain an MRI scan might be taken of two or more parts of the body.
1 part MRI = £420
2 part MRI = £700
A free follow up appointment with your physical therapist will also be arranged, lasting approximately 15 minutes. During this appointment the results of your scan will be discussed, as well as your options for onward treatment.
What happens if I need an onward referral to a relevant consultant?
If, during your initial assessment or following an MRI scan, your physical therapist recommends an onward referral to a relevant consultant, your therapist will be able to help you with this and will discuss your options.
What happens if I need further physical therapy treatment?
If your therapist determines that your back pain can be treated through physical therapy, they will be able to support you in booking ongoing treatment with one of our physiotherapists or osteopaths.
Follow-up appointments with the Physical Therapy team cost £47.
