How we can help

The leading specialists in relieving pain and treating spines

To book an appointment please call us 0207 908 3743

Relieving pain and treating spines is why we get up in the morning. Of course we can't fix everyone all of the time, but you can always be better!

At The Centre for Physical medicine we can help with almost all injuries and conditions of the spine. We also treat shoulder, hip, knee and foot problems; particularly when they are involved in causing problems or pain elsewhere in the body.

We have rapid access to all types of imaging if necessary. We also run a weekly multi disciplinary team meeting. It is an enviable academic environment and is attended by orthopaedic and neuro-surgeons as well as sports physicians and rheumatologists, osteopaths and other physical therapy colleagues who are specialists in their fields. We present difficult cases or second opinion cases. It is available to our patients.

We only work with the best people in their fields, if referral, further tests or investigation are necessary. So we have built our 'little black book' of great people.

With your permission, we always keep other colleagues, who are involved in your care 'in-the-loop' as we feel good communication and collaboration are vital.

Back & Neck Pain

Back and Neck Pain is a tricky and fickle creature. It can appear from nowhere and be gone just as quickly, or hang around for months or years. It demoralises the mind and induces a feeling of being ancient within days. If it hangs around long enough, it can even affect your sleep, libido and ability to make decisions. It costs the UK £5 billion annually and 85 % of the population will suffer with it at least once in their lives.

So that...


“I have been going to Nick for 10 years, initially with a severe prolapsed disc, which he managed to cure without my needing an operation. He takes a very thorough and holistic approach, taking an interest and helping with other aspects of health if necessary. I feel very looked after and know I am getting top advice on how to manage my back for long term health.”
