Back

Pain

Two and half million people in the UK now suffer from back pain. Whether you’re old or young, back pain affects everyone. Back pain can be felt from anywhere in your spine from the top to the bottom. Feeling back pain on your lower back is the most common. Common back pain related issues are slipped disc, sciatica, whiplash, and ankylosing spondylitis (this is a long term condition that causes pain where the spine and pelvis meet).

KNOWN TREATMENT METHODS

  • Taking over the counter medication (the relief is often temporary)
  • Adopting better bending and lifting techniques
  • Using hot or cold compression packs
  • Anti-inflammatory and pain relief medication injected directly into the spine
  • Physiotherapy and manipulation therapy
  • In most severe cases surgery is the only option
