Back pain is the most common complaint that we see, and thankfully there is lots that can be done to help those with general, new or long-term back pain; whether it is upper, middle or lower back pain. As more research into back pain emerges all the time, we are well equipped to use a variety of approaches for the best possible outcome but most importantly to suit your individual needs.
The hands-on treatment used will depend on what the contributing factors are and we will find this out from your case history and thorough physical examination. Treatment is gentle and effective and patients feel safe and aware of what’s going on at all times. An example of treatment would be gentle soft tissue work, stretching muscles, working with the joints to release tension and relaxing the body. Treatment is not just of the back itself, sometimes other areas will have contributed to the back pain, such as the hips and upper back and so treatment to these areas may also be advised in the session. General osteopathic treatment is used to treat the whole body, not just the area of pain.
My most important aim with back pain patients is to get you back to doing what you want to do. I help to improve your confidence in your back and educate you in taking care of your back. Helping those with long term back pain is one of my absolute passions, please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions about your back pain.
