Advice on managing new pain problems



This section of our website is dedicated to helping you manage new pain problems. Most new pain problems are related to inflammation in soft tissues that have been aggravated by day to day life or injured while taking part in sport or recreation. They are very common and will usually settle on their own between 6 and 12 weeks of onset.

 The guides on this page give you information on:

managing a new onset of low back pain


managing a new soft tissue injury

These guides have been written by our experienced physiotherapy team and reflects the same advice we give in our clinics. If things are failing to settle as you would expect after 6 weeks you can always arrange to see us, to find out more click here.

We've also included a link to our lifestyle and MSK Health section. If you've just started to experience pain problems did you know that living a healthy lifestyle can reduce the likelihood of problems becoming chronic or even developing problems in the first place?
