The CHHP team also work closely with an expert surgical referral network, and also offer external and in house pain management options, physiotherapy, osteopathy and radiology referrals where required.
Surgical referral network
Our team of clinicians at CHHP have long standing relationships with a number of local spinal consultants when second opinions and surgical views may be desired to offer the best possible best treatment options.
Whilst one aim of Sport and Exercise medicine is to avoid surgery through specific treatment, we are also offer a range of services including Injections.
Dr. Loosemore MBE can also use MAST (Modic antibiotic spinal treatment) which uses antibiotics to treat chronic low back pain. Read more about the research that led to this type of therapy.

What to expect?
Often patients that we see at CHHP may have had a number of opinions and or previous courses of treatment. Therefore, we know how important it is to pay attention to detail and we adopt an honest ethos with all of our patients. You will receive a thorough consultation on your first visit. This involves initially sitting down and having a detailed discussion with your clinician, and then you will be assessed in order to help decide the optimum management plan for your spine. This can often involve integrating with other specialists outside of CHHP.
The consultants and physicians at CHHP can help with organising your specific radiology requirements depending on your spinal condition. Although not always essential, specific scans; such as MRIs will often help form an integral part of the management plan at CHHP.
