Back Pain Treatment

Back Pain

At North Norfolk Osteopaths we offer back pain treatment for people in Dereham, Fakenham and surrounding areas. 

Our experienced Osteopaths have worked with many patients suffering from back pain and understand the impact back pain can have.  Just carrying out daily activities can become hard work, with pain affecting function, ability to concentrate and quality of life.​​ 

While back pain is extremely common, the symptoms and severity vary greatly.

Identifying the symptoms and getting a diagnosis that pinpoints the underlying cause of the pain is the first step in obtaining effective pain relief.  


Common symptoms of back pain



Treatment

We offer high quality care from qualified experienced Osteopaths.  Our Osteopaths use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage.  Treatment aims to improve circulation and nerve supply to tissues, relieve muscle tension and increase movement in the spine and surrounding joints.

At your initial consultation we will take a detailed history of your current symptoms and carry out a thorough examination. Our Osteopaths will discuss with you what their findings show and explain what treatment they feel will help reduce or allieviate your pain. 

Each treatment is tailored to the individual needs of the patient and aims to reduce symptoms, alleviate pain and improve mobility and function.

Over 60% of the UK’s population experience back pain or pain related to the back, at some stage in their lives. NICE (the National Institute of Clinical Excellence) estimate that around one-third of the UK adult population experience lower back pain each year. 

Research has shown that back pain is significantly reduced after osteopathic treatment and that the benefits can last for several months.   NICE guidelines recommend manipulative therapies including osteopathy for the treatment of low back pain.  


At North Norfolk Osteopaths our treatment also involves rehabilitation, self-care, exercise and postural advice to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.
