Treating Back Pain

Experience over the last 25 years has highlighted the need to have an integrated approach to the treatment and management of spinal pain.

Our treatment aims

First and foremost is the reduction of pain for those patients who are experiencing a sudden onset of back pain and the other aim is pain management for those with long term chronic back problems:

  • Diagnosis of problem
  • Relief of pain
  • Increase mobility
  • Restoration of function
  • Prevention of recurrence
