Back Doctor Chiropractic Clinic
- Medication-Free Relief from Discomfort
- Treating Causes not Symptoms
If you are suffering from a sudden attack of severe pain we will help get rid of it fast. We will diagnose the problem, treat you, give you advice and a long term rehabilitation programme. For advice and downloads take a look at our Emergency Back Pain page.
If you have suffered for more than a few weeks you may need a more holistic approach. We will work with you to get to the root of the problem and to help resolve it for good.
After taking a full medical history and performing spinal, orthopaedic and neurological examinations, we rule out any serious pathology and make a medical diagnosis (eg slipped disc)
This means exploring how muscles and joints move together. How is the body working? Are muscles over-tight or too weak? Are the spinal joints moving correctly without restriction?
Finally we make an holistic assessment. This means looking at other factors that may influence the problem such as posture, stress, work, diet and the feet
