The back is made up of a series of small bones known as vertebrae which combine to form the spine. The spines role is to protect the spinal cord, to provide attachments for muscles and ligaments and provide support and structure to the body. The back is involved in every movement in the body and therefore injuries or conditions which need surgery can cause pain and restrict normal ranges of movement. Physiotherapy aims to help you overcome these problems and get you back to your best as quickly as possible.
Leeds Physiotherapy’s team of specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapists are experts in the assessment and treatment of those who may require back surgery or those who have undergone back surgery. We are ready to help you prior to or following your back operation.

At Leeds Physiotherapy we understand the concerns and worries you may be experiencing before surgery. Our team of physiotherapists are happy to give you the time to talk through any procedure that you may be undergoing to make sure you fully understand what will be happening during and what to expect following surgery.
