Back pain is one of the main conditions for which people seek help from an osteopath. Muscle strain, fractures, osteoarthritis, pregnancy, falls and slips may commonly cause pain in the back.
If you have intense pain that’s causing significant problems or doesn’t seem to be improving, it could be worth trying manual therapy. An osteopath can offer this type of treatment for any type of short or long-term general pain in the back. They can also help with sciatica – pain that spreads from your back down your legs.
