Osteopaths can be visited without a referral from a GP and are trained to know the difference between uncomplicated back pain and back pain requiring referral to specialist care. In some cases there may be a more serious cause for low back pain such as disc injury, fracture, tumour and infection, which requires ongoing specialist support.


80% of the population will suffer from back pain at some time.

Studies show that osteopathic treatment may reduce back pain, may increase mobility and assists in the recovery process*.
