Better Recovery for BACK PAIN Patients

In a recent study of back-pain patients, it was found that patients follow instructions better and recover more fully if they take an active part in making decisions about their treatment, against physiotherapists just treating the problems and not involving the patient. Research by Jones LE et al published in European Spine Journal 2014.

We can all learn from this by making sure that our patients come on-board with the treatment intervention, by discussing and communicating about the most suitable treatment approach to suit each individual’s lifestyle and requirements.

Gill's approach is to think about the individual behind the pain, and so she treats that person. She's an outstanding practitioner, who inspires trust and confidence.


I'm delighted to give a testimonial for Gill Huckett's Hatfield physiotherapy practice, Physio 23. I've been seeing Gill for several years now. I was referred to her, following an episode of bad back pain. After a careful and thorough initial assessment, and physio treatment, Gill also showed me some daily Pilates exercises to do at home, backed up with written instructions – with easy-to-follow pictures! Regular treatments and the exercises helped me to recover well. As my back problem is chronic, I currently see her for maintenance treatments and these have proved to be invaluable.
