Do You Suffer From Low Back Pain?

You may have seen in the media recently that "The Lancet" (a medical publication) have called on medical professionals worldwide to stop offering ineffective and potentially harmful treatments to patients for low back pain. Research shows that people with low back pain are being harmed by an over-reliance on scans, surgery and opioid prescriptions, and could be more effectively treated by advice on self-management and less-invasive physical and psychological therapies.

In the UK, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) have produced extensive guidance that recommends manual therapy as part of an overall package of care for those with low back pain. They also recommend exercise, self-management and psychological support which osteopaths routinely provide.

The most common reason for a patient to visit an osteopath is for low back pain. It accounts for almost half of our workload, and we pride ourselves on offering care which is tailored to the individual.

If low back pain is affecting you please don’t suffer, give us a call on 01249 659749, or book an appointment using our online booking service.
