At Physio for All, we treat many pain conditions such as back pain, neck pain, headaches, shoulder and knee pain.
Physiotherapists play an important role in the management of acute and chronic pain. After a thorough assessment, we will make a treatment plan together with you to help reduce pain and address the roots of your symptoms to prevent reoccurrence.
Physiotherapy treatment to relieve your pain may include soft tissues massage and stretching to relieve tension and spasm, joint mobilisations, acupuncture, electrotherapy, corrective exercise, posture awareness, and advice on how to overcome pain in your daily activities. We will also help you to understand the cause of your pain.
Through our years of experience and evidence-based practice we believe that a combination of manual treatment and muscle re-education is the most effective treatment.

When in lot of pain, you may just want to stay in bed with a hot bottle, take a paracetamol and not move. Studies have shown that exercise and movement is one of the best options for chronic pain. Your physiotherapist will offer advice and prescribe a safe exercise programme according to your problem so you can keep moving.
- Acute and chronic pain
The chartered Society of Physiotherapy writes:
Acute pain: short-term pains act as an alarm, telling us that something is wrong. While most minor pains are easily treated and quickly forgotten, others are a sign of something more serious that we shouldn’t ignore. For example, the pain of a broken leg is helpful because it makes us rest the leg until it heals.
Chronic pain is usually defined as pain that persists beyond the normal time that tissues take to heal following an injury. Most soft tissue injuries heal up within weeks, although some can take several months to completely heal. If a pain continues longer than 3-6 months, it is usually described by pain specialists as “chronic” or persistent pain. The causes of chronic pain are not always clear but in some conditions the pain is thought to be due to the pain signals through the nerve fibres becoming confused. The brain is then unable to understand the signals properly
- Chronic back and neck pain
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Neuropathic pain (Nerve pain)

What our patients say
My entire experience with Physio4all has been superb. From initial enquiry, to the first consultation and the subsequent sessions, everything was extremely professional and friendly. Christine put together a great plan for me and supplied me with constant support throughout the rehabilitation process. Her and her staff also went above and beyond in assisting me to supply the insurance company as well as the surgeon with all the information they requested throughout the process. All in all, a great experience and would wholeheartedly recommend them. Taufik
I had not been to Physio4all for a few years and a bad sciatica made me make the journey again to Webbs road; the staff is welcoming, friendly and very professional; special thanks to Adriano who put me back on my two legs in only one session plus loads of advices; superb performance!
Comparing my recovery to unfortunate friends who had a similar ACL and MCL skiing injury, I have had far smoother and faster results , which I believe is fully attributable to the regular, motivational and professional treatment from Physio For Al. Thank you so much!
I had some physio sessions both for post-natal perineal rehab after my second child and during my pregnancy when expecting my third child to relief me from back. With each session I felt better. Christine is a lovely practitioner who knows the woman body inside out, truly cares and is the expert. I would 100% recommend her and her practice for any pregnancy post-natal treatment.
I’ve been using Physio For All for 17 years, prior to that I’d never used physio. It sorted out issues I’d had for 30 years. All the therapists have been outstanding. I recommend you all the time! Thank you for your excellent and caring service.
My Physio has been excellent working with me through a long rehab post-surgery. I am now able to participate in sports at the same level as before injury. This is far surpassing even my own expectations I wholeheartedly recommend Physio For All to anyone who wishes to be able to return to full, normal activity following injury.
I had incontinence issues after given birth due to a very weak pelvic floor. Things I could not do anymore including running and I thought that would be the case for the rest of my life. After a couple of months of treatment things have now dramatically improved. Thanks a lot Christine for all your help!
I have had ongoing back, shoulder and neck pain. My treatment at Physio For All has taught me exercises to strengthen my muscles and relieve pain and I have felt a huge improvement. I think the staff are excellent, experienced, sympathetic and extremely helpful. I have recommended Physio for All to many friends. I now come regularly for a massage to help prevent the build-up of tension.
