Neck and Spine
Our spinal physiotherapy team consists of a number of specialist physiotherapists with a special interest in the diagnosis, investigation and treatment of all types of spinal problems. The team works across Calderdale and Huddersfield within the hospital sites and outlying health centres. We have close working relationships with Advanced Spinal Practitioners and Orthopaedic Consultants within the trust.
Our aim is to help patients to achieve maximum functional potential through active treatment and empower individuals to manage their spinal conditions over the long term. All our treatments are based on the latest evidence and focus on the goals of the patient.
A patients treatment pathway begins with an individual one to one physiotherapy assessment. Following this assessment treatment options will be discussed with you, future treatment may comprise of:
- Individual one to one treatment sessions
- Participation in one of the spinal rehabilitation groups
We pride ourselves in the relationships we have with our other MSK Physiotherapy Teams (lower Limb, upper Limb and rheumatology) and also the Pain Clinic (at CRH and HRI). Referrals onto Pain Management Programmes are also available if appropriate for patients with ongoing multiple health conditions.
