What is Pudendal Neuralgia?
At Core Body Clinic in Reading we want to provide an awesome service for our patients. For this we need equally awesome physiotherapists. So, we have recently added Greg Pullum to our team. Greg works at our Reading (RG2 7BW) and Tilehurst (RG31 5DG) clinics.
Greg is a thoroughly nice chap and just happens to be a super skilled and very knowledgeable physiotherapist. However, Greg is no ordinary physio. Like Adrian, Greg also holds a post graduate qualification in manual therapy (MACP) and has completed specialist modules in advanced physiotherapy practice. But, just to make Greg that little bit more super, he also practices as a Spinal ESP – this should stand for “Exceptionally Superb Physio”, what is actually stands for is ‘Extended Scope Physiotherapist’. The term ESP refers to an experienced physiotherapist who has received further appropriate training to work outside their normal scope of practice normally expected from a physiotherapist. This might include extensive experience, additional competencies, a Masters (MSc) degree or membership of a specialist organisation like the MACP. Greg’s current role focuses upon Spinal Diagnostic triage and advanced decision making to ensure patients have appropriate investigations and are referred to the right speciality in a timely fashion.
Practitioners often offer a mixture of therapy using acupuncture, manipulation and/or exercise to combat pain in the spine. At Core Body Clinic we know how useful all of these are for rehabilitation of the spine and other types of body pain. We also know how important education and knowledge is when dealing with pain.
The cost of back pain in the UK amounts to a staggering £7bn a year in treatment and sick days!
