Low back pain
Muscle? Nerve? Joint? Disc? Ligament? Bone? Tendon?
All are common causes of low back and leg pain.
Your pain may have started suddenly or built up over time. It may have started with an obvious reason such as lifting or it may seemingly have come out of nowhere.
By taking the time to question thoroughly and perform a full and detailed clinical examination, we can find out what is causing your pain and discuss your treatment options ALL on your first visit.
Occasionally we need to refer for a scan or back to your GP/Consultant.
Most of the time, however, we can help and start on that first visit.
We are all different, by determining the cause of your back pain we will create an individual treatment plan and together resolve your problem.
