Physiotherapy Clinic - Chronic Back Pain Treatment

Chronic Back PainIf you suffer from back pain, you may well have tried numerous treatments without finding any long-term relief.

Many of our patients have found that "passive" therapies ranging from chiropractic to injections, offer little, or only short-term benefit.

At The Back Clinic we offer something different - specialised active rehabilitation that targets the fundamental causes of back pain.
