Back and Neck Pain

Back and neck pain is a common problem resulting from poor postural position or acute injury. Prolonged sitting such as in office jobs, often results in an increased stress on the spine, leading to the gradual onset of back/neck pain. Spinal pain may also be due to an acute injury in sports or through whiplash from a car accident. Physiotherapy treatment including exercises, joint mobilisation and soft tissue manipulation aims to eliminate pain to allow you to return to normal daily activities.

For an assessment for your back and neck pain call 07 3372 8866.

Spinal Stenosis, Herniated Discs and Sciatica

Spinal Stenosis (spinal canal narrowing), Herniated Discs (prolapsed discs) and Sciatica (sciatic nerve compression) can result in severe pain and neurological symptoms. Symptoms of these conditions can have a huge effect on your day-to-day function and quality of life. Physiotherapy is essential for speeding up rate of recovery for you to return to normal pain-free life as quickly as possible through a range of treatment techniques.
