Low back and neck pain are the two most common regional presentations to our clinic. Two reasons for this is the high prevalence of pain in these regions and the association of Osteopathy with spinal care. The lifetime prevalence for low back pain and cervical spine (neck) pain are 80% and 70% respectively. Low back issues are the number one reason that individuals seek assistance from their general practitioner.
How to fix Back and Neck Pain
We see a lot of low backs and necks, and we are good at treating them. At Orewa Osteopathy we have developed a strong diagnostic, treatment and management model. When you see us about a lower back or neck issue, we will take time to establish a diagnosis and treatment plan, both of which we will communicate to you. Within treatment we have many options including the use of Osteopathic Manual Therapy, The McKenzie Method (MDT), Physiotherapy techniques, Acupuncture and Pilates exercises. This helps us to have very good outcomes with our patients. In the case of a patient who is not responsive to treatment or where it is not appropriate or safe to have treatment at our clinic, we have a good referral network of other practitioners including Orthopaedic and Musculoskeletal specialists.
