Is Back Pain Affecting Your Life?

Back pain affects 8 out of 10 New Zealanders. This may be in the form of mild, severe, acute or chronic back pain. Regardless of the type of pain, we can return to your fully functioning, pain-free self!

What Causes Back Pain?

Back pain is caused by many factors. These include:

-Heavy lifting

-Trauma, such as a fall or accident

-Sitting or standing for long periods of time


-Muscle weaknesses or inflexibility

-Structural weakness in the back

Regardless of the cause of your back pain, we can help you recover your usual mobility and freedom of movement. We can also offer advise on stretches and other preventative approaches that you can take to help avoid this pain from recurring. If your back pain is the result of an accident, we can also lodge an ACC claim for you.

Alleviate Pain

Lower back pain is one of the most frequent reasons people come to see an osteopath. The problem can be muscular low back pain or spinal low back pain in origin.

If you’ve had acute problems/spasms with your lower back you’ll know just how debilitating this can be.

When back pain hits you, you start envying anyone who can move normally – you’d give your back teeth just to be able to move as normally as someone double your age!

The good news is that with non-invasive osteopathic treartment lower back pain is usually easy to treat, with significant relief of your pain and a quick return to normality.

Recover Freedom Of Movement

Back pain is very common and can be severe and can be debilitating.

Osteopathy uses a variety of techniques to treat back pain. Almost all of these are extremely gentle, but will help you restore ease to the movement and function of the spine.

This wil help you relieve both pain and discomfort, and reduces wear and tear on the spine .

Rather than putting up with back pain, or “hoping it will go away”, why not get treatment now and restore the dfreedom of movement that you deserve!
