  • Help you to manage and accept your pain levels. Reduce disability through chronic lower back 
    pain and improve quality of life.
  • Get you back to work/family life / leisure activities as soon as possible.
  • Deal with back pain caused by disk derangement, spondylolysis, spondyliolisthesis and 
    stenosis* and non-specific lower back pain (around 85% of back pain).


So if you suffering from recurrent back pain for more than 3 months and have consulted your doctor to rule out more serious conditions, get in touch now and start feeling the benefits as soon as possible!

Lordosis – An inward curvature of a portion of the lumbar and cervical vertebral column.
Kyphosis – Over-curvature of the thoracic vertebrae (upper back).
Spondylolysis & Spondylolisthesis – Stress fracture leading to total detachment of vertebral parts.
Spondylosis – Degenerative osteoarthritis of the posterior and superior articular surfaces of the vertebrae.
Spondylitis & Anklyosing Spondylitis – An inflammation of the vertebra.
Spinal Stenosis – Narrowing of the spinal canal causing compression on the spinal cord and nerves.
Disc Herniation – Bulging of the central part of the intervertebral disc.
Scoliosis – A lateral curvature of the spine visible in the frontal plane.
Cauda Equina – Serious nerve root pressure, requiring emergency medical attention.
1. Small Stress fracture occurs

2. Fracture develops until totally detached from the body of the vertebra. Usually effects 5th Lumbar Vertebrae

3. The anterior displacement of a vertebra or the vertebral column in relation to the vertebrae below

Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal. This puts pressure on the spinal cord and the spinal nerve roots, and may cause pain, numbness, or weakness in the legs.


When intervertebral disks collapse and osteoarthritis develops, your body may respond by growing new bone in your facet joints to help support the vertebrae. Over time, this bone overgrowth – called spurs – can lead to a narrowing of the spinal canal. Osteoarthritis can also cause the ligaments that connect vertebrae to thicken, which can narrow the spinal canal.


Avoid any movement that creates direct pressure on the spinal cord and causes pain. However, Stretching exercises, massage, and lumbar and abdominal strengthening often help manage symptoms.
