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.

Injury Rehabilitation

At Skelian, all of our practitioners from our Chiropractors, Sports Therapists to our Specialist Physiotherapist are trained in rehabilitation.

About Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation is all about strengthening the core muscles, improving balance and mobility, and reducing the likelihood of recurrent symptoms. 

Conditions we treat 

  • Postural issues
  • Sports injury
  • Recovery from traumatic injury
  • Repetitive strain injury
  • Sciatica
  • Muscle spasm and cramp

What we offer

At Skelian, all of our practitioners from our Chiropractors, Sports Therapists to our Specialist Physiotherapist are trained in rehabilitation. Many of us have personal experience with rehab for sports injuries. 

All our bodies are different, and we all have different problems, different weaknesses, and different lifestyles. As a result, rehabilitation needs to be tailored to each individual, and our practitioners are very good at this.

Some patients will receive a set of simple exercises to do at home, whereas others will need more careful supervision. For example in recovering from a disc injury. Usually, a progression through different exercises and techniques is required over a period of weeks, or sometimes months. Unlike stretching exercises, where you often feel the benefit immediately, strengthening takes longer to achieve results. However, it is worth it, because there is strong evidence that rehabilitation is an effective tool in managing chronic back pain and preventing relapses.

What to expect

Your practitioner will carry out a thorough assessment of your injury or problem and following treatment, may prescribe a set of exercises to strengthen key muscles in order to aid the recovery of your injury. Our practitioners use a holistic approach. They will also ask you questions about your nutrition, lifestyle and work demands to create a rehabilitation programme that is best suited to your needs. Some injuries need careful supervision from the practitioner and in other cases, patients are able to perform their rehab exercises at home and report progress back to their practitioner. Our practitioners are all on hand to answer any queries you may have throughout your programme and adapt it if required.

  • One-to-one tailored rehabilitation
  • Strengthening and mobility exercises
  • Regular contact with practitioner to track progress
