Back & Neck Pain

Nine out of ten people develop back or neck pain during their lifetime and it can be debilitating, affecting all aspects of your life.

At The Physio Studio, our experienced physiotherapists will discuss how your back and neck pain affects your lifestyle and examine your joints, muscles and nerves in detail. They will identify factors affecting your back and neck problem, such as localised areas of stiffness in the spine due to prolonged sitting, or specific muscle weaknesses that have developed over a period of time.

We use a number of methods to successfully treat back and neck pain. These include deep soft tissue massaging, joint mobilisation, acupuncture, clinical pilates and manipulation. (click through to how we treat pages when clicked) No two individuals have the same problems and therefore individual management plans will be developed to ensure you are getting the best possible treatment. We are able to give specialist advice on exercises to strengthen your back and neck, helping you to get back to living your normal life as soon as possible.

Pain hotspots


Neck Pain


Damage to the ligaments, vertebrae and possibly nerve roots of the neck region caused by the jerking of the head and neck backwards. Road traffic accidents are the most common cause.



Protruding disc (Slipped disc)

The inner gel like substance of the disc protrudes into the outer fibrous wall causing a bulge in the disc to occur. The disc normally protrudes laterally or posteriorly often compressing ligaments and/or nerve roots. This commonly results in back and leg pain.


General Body Pain

Postural dysfunction

An imbalance in opposing muscles of the lower back and pelvis or neck and the upper body, caused by prolonged postures or repetitive movements/activity can cause pain and spasm in these areas. Muscle trigger point release and a progressive stretching and strengthening programme along with workstation or activity assessment can help regain balance and prevent the return of pain and discomfort.


Degeneration of the intervertabral discs in the spine. Commonly resulting in pain, stiffness and muscle spasm in and around the affected area.


Inflammation of the synovial joint in the spine. Possibly causing pain, stiffness and spasm in the affected are.
