Preventing back pain

With the right approach, basic back pain can be avoided.  Our Rheumatologists and Physiotherapists can help you maintain a healthy back and return to mobility after injury.

The spine consists of 33 bones (vertebrae) and forms a channel through which your spinal cord and nerves pass.  Our spinal surgeons Mr Jason Harvey and Mr Magnus McLaren can remove bones, ligament or disc that is pressing on the nerves to return you to pain free mobility. 

If you're not insured you can pay for your spinal treatment
