I walked in to the Skelian clinic at my wit's end - my neck and shoulders hurt from decades of poor posture due to computer work, my left forearm was tight and painful and I had been suffering with agonizing tennis elbow in my right arm which was waking me up every night. It felt like my entire upper body had seized up. From the moment I entered the clinic I felt a good vibe - Angela, the receptionist, made me feel relaxed and welcome and was just lovely to be around, she takes a genuine interest in every client and radiates warmth - and has a lovely singing voice to boot! Victoria, who I cannot thank enough, has worked miracles. After four treatments, using a combination of dry needle therapy, targeted deep tissue massage and spinal manipulation I feel like a different person. The pain has almost completely gone and I have a workable action plan on how to look after my joints. Victoria is empathic, exceptionally knowledgeable, witty and a great listener. She explains what she is doing in straightforward language and puts you at ease immediately. I can honestly say that I am blown away by the results, it is life changing to have that debilitating pain taken away. I wish I'd gone sooner. If you are suffering with neck, back or joint problems please just book an appointment online, you owe it to yourself.

I've been coming to Dani for regular Sports Massage appointments for nearly a year now, recently transitioning on to the Hot Stones massage. As someone who likes to regularly weight train these sessions have been invaluable to my recovery and have ensured that any aches, pains and knots are kept to their absolute minimum. I've recently moved over to the Hot Stones massage and highly recommend it, it's a great mixture of traditional sports massage techniques combined with the hot stones - this will be my go to massage moving forward. Dani is extremely welcoming, friendly and a pleasure to be around - I can't rate her highly enough!

Friendly, professional service. Tom has been fantastic at sorting out my neck and back issues, providing explanation before, during and after treatment as well as providing after care exercises I can do at home. I have been delighted with my treatment so far. Thank you!

Very nice clinic and in my opinion affordable. I went there because I have office job and suffer from neck/back pain occasionally. Jamie Franchini was extra attentive, reassuring and informative all the way along my first app (since my partner mentioned that I feel a bit nervious about the procedure) and has a very friendly and welcoming personality. He explained everything and made me at ease. Created plan for my particular needs and even sent me additional info with recommended excercises to do for my issues. Had just few visits but deffinately will keep going for the maintenance and further support of overall health. Highly recommending :)

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.
