About Back pain

Back pain is the most common cause of chronic pain with an estimated 80% of people suffering with back pain at some point in their lives.

Many people ignore back pain seeing it as a consequence of a sedentary modern lifestyle, or as a side effect of ageing. In fact, an aching back is not normal and we should not be accepting it as a part of normal life.
Our body should move with optimum function, we will help you work towards that goal.
Back pain can happen for a multitude of reasons including infections, autoimmune diseases, fractures, internal organs and mechanical issues.
With the modern sedentary lifestyle that most people are leading back pain has become mainly mechanical, this can be triggered by a multitude of things:

  • Inflamed Joints
  • Poor Posture- Standing & Sitting
  • Strained Muscles
  • Irritated nerves
  • Lifting incorrectly
  • Trigger points
  • Ruptured Discs
  • Bending awkwardly

I have suffered with neck, shoulder and arm pain and the treatment I have received has really helped me. I would certainly recommend anyone who is suffering with pain to attend this clinic.


It has been fantastic to get some treatment that cures the cause and not just the symptoms.  I’m now pain free – Great!


Before coming for treatment I had severe discomfort in my lower back following an operation.  This caused problems with my posture.  I am now able to stand taller and walk more freely.


Seeing a Chiropractor has changed my life. Previously I was in pain most of the time and my quality of life was restricted. Now I know that there is hope for a future without pain.


This is a practice whose staff are friendly, helpful and professional.  My treatment is far from over (arthritic spine, hip surgery etc.) but I am certain that without it I should be in a far worse state than that which I presently enjoy.


Before any treatment, I was very stiff and did not have much movement in my neck.  I now have full movement in my neck.
