Back and Neck

Back and neck pain are the two most common complaints treated by our practitioners.

Treatment of back and neck pain consists of first reducing pain to increase function, and then rehabilitation to prevent future injury.

Does this Sound Familiar?

“Brad is sick and tired (literally) of waking with a stiff neck and a sore back. It used to only take a bit of a stretch to get him going, but these days the discomfort of his neck and back is sometimes lasting the entire day. A work colleague mentioned that it could be his bed – but where on earth do you start with beds? The last thing Brad wants to deal with is a young buck salesperson who is more interested in making targets than Brad’s welfare.

“Lately I’ve even had to avoid picking up the grandkids…yet I’m only 58 – this shouldn’t be happening yet”
