About me

First of all, thank you for visiting my website! My name is Marek Czeladzki. I am a Chartered Physiotherapist based in Southampton near Southampton General Hospital. It is very likely that you have found my page because you are in pain and need help. Regardless whether your pain is long-standing or has just occurred today, I can help you. I have been in practice since 2004, and specialize in treating patients with back pain and other musculoskeletal issues. In my approach, I use a number of hands-on techniques in order to find the best option for patients. I use myoskeletal alignment techniques based on Dr Erik Dalton's school of thought, manual therapy, therapeutic massage, osteopathic techniques. My service also includes professional, individually tailored, advice on back care, and a prescription of an appropriate rehabilitation program if required. Having worked in the NHS since 2008, I have also gained valuable experience in oncology, neurodegenerative diseases and Mental Health. I continue working part-time for the NHS as Physiotherapy Team Lead. My Physiotherapy service is available to patients in Southampton and the surrounding areas.

Lower back pain and high heels

High heels are popular and some women can’t imagine going to a party or attend an important event wearing any other type of shoes. But by wearing high heels you weaken the body’s kinetic chain.
