Structured, self-management support for pain conditions

Mild back pain can often be relieved by changing daily habits. Whilst it is common for patients to rest in bed, medical research suggests this is not the best option. Patients attending The Chelmsford are often advised to try gentle exercise such as swimming or walking, coupled with good stretching afterwards. For many lower back pain sufferers, losing weight is often a part of curing back problems. Our consultants and specialist therapists can provide advice in all these areas, helping patients to manage themselves to recovery.
