Back Pain

Back pain is extremely common amongst Australians and can affect people of all ages.  Back pain is one of the most common reasons people visit our practice to receive advise and assistance from our Osteopaths.

Back pain can also cause people to feel some anxiety at times, however often with the correct diagnosis, imaging, examination, treatment, management and knowledge this anxiety can quickly be resolved.

Back pain can be caused by: simple muscle spasms, postural related issues, a joint sprain, a disc bulge or sciatica as well as conditions such as scoliosis, arthritis or osteoporosis.

Achieving Results

Our Osteopaths have extensive experience in back pain and in working to determine the cause. We believe to achieve results spending time with each person is vital. Our initial consultations are 55 minutes to 1 hour, with all standard subsequent consultations being 35 to 40 minutes. This time allows us to take a thorough history in order to understand each patient and their needs. An examination is conducted and subsequent diagnosis is discussed to provide insight and knowledge on how to best manage the condition. Treatment and an individualised management plan is also put in place.

Our Osteopaths understand the body is a complex unit and in order to assist a patient with individualised management advise we take into account a persons age, abilities, limitations, occupation, gender, interests and mindset.

Getting Back to Living Life to the Fullest

We understand a key concern that most people have is the limitations back pain places on performing work tasks, household duties and even restricting the ability to perform the hobbies and leisure activities that we all love.

Our ultimate goal is to get you back to those activities you love, whether it be to:

  • return to golf by assisting your mid and low back range of motion, so you can get that great score!
  • get back to playing that game of tennis by assisting you with the upper back, shoulder, forearm and elbow pain and joint mechanics
  • improving the pelvic, heel and foot pain that won’t go away, so that you can get back to walking in order to maintain a healthy weight and stay fit, healthy and strong
  • improving the upper back pain that occurs with prolonged hours at the desk by providing you with up to date advise on desk ergonomics and improved postural advise
  • and so much more….
