Spinal Care

Our goals of treatment are to decrease back pain, increase function, and teach you a maintenance program to prevent future back problems.

Primarily from our assessment we are ascertaining a working diagnosis which firstly will be distinguishing a mechanical or non-mechanical cause for your pain. We will be taking time to understand the abilities and limitations you have with your back pain and developing an individual programme that is practical to implement.

Within our practice we have experience treating:

  • Spinal spondylosis / degenerative back pain
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Disc herniations
  • Nerve root irritation
  • Scoliosis
  • Simple back pain- which can include muscle imbalances/ligament strains, facet joint sprain.
  • Chronic back pain

By accelerating your recovery you will be able to resume normal activities quicker and minimise any disruption to your working life.

Treatment can include

  • Spinal mobilisations
  • Soft tissue and myofascial release
  • Pain relief techniques for use at home
  • Acupuncture (if appropriate)
  • Movement analysis, advice and management advice
  • Home exercises – either working on improving mobility or stability
