Osteopathy for Back or Neck Pain

Back and Neck Pain

Back pain

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

Studies show that osteopathic treatment reduces back pain, increases mobility and speeds the recovery process.

Your osteopath can assist you to develop the course of action consistent with your lifestyle, symptoms and goals to manage your back and neck pain. 

Your osteopath may:

  • work on joint mobility
  • work on muscular tension, inflammation and nerve irritation
  • investigate blood supply and drainage to and from the spine and pelvis
  • reduce the duration of low back pain and help prevent future episodes
  • offer advice on posture, exercises and stretching
  • provide advice on improving your ergonomic environment
  • provide guidance on diet, hydration and exercise
  • communicate and plan treatmnet with your GP
  • refer you for radiological assessment when required
  • provide care funded by workers compensation schemes and traffic accident shemes. 

Osteopaths can be visited without a referral from a GP and are trained to know the difference between uncomplicated back pain and back pain requiring referral to specialist care. In some cases there may be a more serious cause for low back pain such as disc injury, fracture, tumour and infection, which requires ongoing specialist support.

Common causes of back and neck pain:

  • extensive sitting or standing
  • heavy lifting
  • injury
  • changes during pregnancy
  • constipation, irritable bowel
  • endometriosis
  • menstrual pain
  • insufficient flexibility
  • muscle weakness
  • dysfunction in the thorax, lower limbs and pelvis.
