Treating Back Pain & Neck Pain at the Oxford & Weybridge OSIC

Current research suggests that over 80% of the population will experience back pain at some point in their lives.  Although it can be debilitating, most back and neck pain is not serious.  Back pain is often the result of poor posture, injury or repetitive strain. Back pain can involve the joints, ligaments, discs, muscles and nerves.

Despite the pain it is important to keep relatively active.  Resting for prolonged periods may cause muscle stiffness and potentially increase the duration of pain.  If neck or back pain persists, or if symptoms are not improving, it is important to get your spine thoroughly examined.

At the Oxford OSIC our Osteopaths are able to provide treatment aimed at relieving pain and discomfort and restoring both movement and function.  Treatment for neck and back pain may include manipulation, passive mobilisation of joints and soft tissue massage. Exercises may also be used to increase general fitness and to strengthen muscles which support the spine.

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE)* advises in its May 2009 consultation paper that manual therapy including manipulation, acupuncture and a structured exercise program tailored to the individual should be considered in the management of patients with chronic (longer than six weeks duration) non-specific low back pain.

In the United Kingdom a randomised back pain exercise and manipulation (UK BEAM)** trial that looked into the effectiveness of physical treatments for back pain in primary care concluded that relative to "best care" in general practice, manipulation followed by exercise was one of the best courses of treatment.
