Neck and back pain

osteopath treating back pain

80% of the population will suffer from neck and back pain at some time.*

We use our bodies in all sorts of ways; often the stresses and strains that we experience in our daily lives can build up and may lead to an injury or aches and pains.

Common causes of neck and back pain include prolonged sitting or standing, heavy lifting, stiffness, weakened muscles, injury, changes during pregnancy and muscular tension related to stress.

Osteopaths, as primary health care practitioners, are trained in recognising imbalances within your body by using skilled evaluation, diagnosis and a wide range of hands-on techniques. Osteopathic treatment uses techniques such as stretching and soft tissue massage for general treatment of the muscles, tendons and ligaments along with mobilisation and balancing techniques of specific joints and soft tissues.

Our team of osteopaths can also offer exercise and postural advice on how to best manage your neck and/or back pain, allowing you to live an active and healthy lifestyle.
