“90% of back pain sufferers stop seeing their GP within three months but most of them are still in pain a year later.”
NICE guidelines recommend you consider manual therapy (spinal manipulation, mobilisation or soft tissue techniques such as massage) for managing low back pain, with or without sciatica, in conjunction with exercise*. All of which we offer here at Fraser House Chiropractic Clinic.
Listed below are a few of the back and lower body complaints we frequently see and treat at Fraser House Clinic:
- Low back pain
- Hip osteoarthritis
- Knee ostoearthritis
- Plantar fasciitis (often presents as pain in the heel or the arch of the foot)
