getback for back pain relief

Relief in the short term

After an initial consultation to understand your condition, an individual treatment plan will be developed with you for your immediate needs and future goals. Your back pain treatment may begin with a combination of hands-on physiotherapy or osteopathy, movement-based therapy or exercise.

Resilience for the long term

Once your back pain has stabilised, you may complete an assessment to measure the mobility and strength of your spine’s supporting muscles.

These measurements are used to set mobility and strength targets as part of your overall treatment plan.

The ability to accurately measure spinal strength and mobility and track your progress sets getback apart from other back pain treatment programs.

Resilience in the long term
