Back pain is the most common complaint we see, and it's no surprise with an estimated 80% of the population suffering from a back problem during their lifetime. The good news is that most back pain is reversible and with the right care and advice very treatable. Many factors can contribute to having a bad back including the way we stand and even the way we sit! Identifying the issues that are particular to each case is vital for a successful recovery and this stems from taking a detailed and thorough case history and assessing each individual to find out what has caused the back pain. This approach is integral to what we do at Newhill Osteopathy.
