Spinal Pain

We treat all spinal problems including prolapsed discs, degeneration, sciatica, lumbago, stiff/painful neck and referred arm and leg pains.

Treatment may involve:

Mobilisation and manipulation applied to joints to reduce stiffness, relieve pain and restore normal movement.
Soft tissue massage to reduce scar tissue, relieve muscle spasm and accelerate the healing process.
Electrotherapy techniques including ultrasound and interferential electrotherapy to relieve pain and enhance the healing process.
Exercise Programmes to improve mobility and strength and muscles.
Prevention – looking at the cause of the injury and advising on means of stopping re-occurrence by the use of exercises and postural advice. Learning about a problem also gives you the confidence to get back to normal activities quickly.

Your first consultation will consist of a full assessment and treatment in the same session. At your first visit Pauline will be able to give you some idea of the number of treatments you will need; most cases require on average of six treatments. Each treatment session lasts at least thirty minutes.

Referral by a doctor is not a requirement; however, if you are seeking reimbursement from private health insurance companies they may want you to have spoken to your doctor first.
