My experience with Skelian has been overwhelming positive. I have had lower back pain on and off for a good few years but Jamie has been able to assist with making things more comfortable for me since beginning treatment. I can’t thank Jamie enough for giving me the ability to train again without fear of enduring discomfort afterwards. Simply amazing service!!

I was fortunate enough to come across these guys & Brad the physio who helped me I can not recommend enough. After coming back from a long term injury Brad helped me & allowed me to train & compete at my best. Being a professional boxer your body is under a lot of strain but I was able to manage this due to these guys and Brad. 5 stars can’t recommend enough

I was struggling with some lower back pain and sciatica and nothing seemed to be working until I came across this fantastic young man, I work in the trade and everyone kept telling me i just need to change careers to fix my back, but he diagnosed my issues within a session and managed to fix me up in a few regular sessions and gave me some great managing techniques. Highly recommend people with any issues to get in contact, many thanks again for fixing my back pain!

I initially contacted Brad , a physiotherapist, from Cheltenham, after a recommendation, as I had been suffering with problems with my shoulder for a while. I then decided to make an appointment with Brad. I cannot fault his service. He was excellent in diagnosing my frozen shoulder after a thorough examination. He then manipulated my shoulder and muscles around the shoulder. He was very thorough and informative and talked me through everything he was doing and explained everything. He gave me exercises I could do at home. He kept in touch with me after this examination to catch up on my progress. I visited him several times for manipulation and exercises and, happily, my shoulder is now fully functional with no lasting effects. I found Brad to be very friendly, very informative and an excellent Physiotherapist. I would not hesitate to visit him again should I need a Physiotherapist.

Chronic Back Pain

Chronic back pain is when you experience pain coming from or around your spine for a long time. In this article we look at symptoms, causes and treatment options.

What is Chronic Back Pain?

Chronic back pain means pain in your spine that has been around for a long time. Pain is classed as chronic once the pain has gone on for longer than six months.

What Causes Chronic pain?

Chronic pain can have many causes, which is why it can take a long time to improve. There are lots of issues or factors that might be adding to the problem. This can range from bad habits, weak muscles, wear and tear in the spine and even psychological factors such as stress or depression can add to the problem.

How do I treat Chronic back pain?

Due to the nature of chronic back pain, there are many things to consider when trying to treat back pain. In most cases, chronic pain is not directly a serious health problem, but it does have a serious knock-on effect on other areas of your health and well-being. 

When looking for help with chronic back pain, it is worthwhile looking into multiple different areas of your problem as well as your lifestyle to see what needs addressing. 

In most cases, chronic back pain comes from a mechanical cause. This means the pain is coming from joints, muscles and nerves. Exercise and changes in lifestyle can have a positive effect on the pain you experience. 

At Skelian we offer a variety of excellent services performed by our highly trained expert healthcare professionals that can help you with your acute back pain.
