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 :)

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
  • Shoulder pain 
  • Elbow pain 
  • Back pain
  • Knee pain
  • Ankle pain
  • Plantar fasciitis 
  • Headaches caused by neck issues
  • Migraine prevention

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
