Back Pain

Back Pain affects up to 90% of the population at some point during their lives. There are many different causes and types of back pain and correct diagnosis is essential. Back pain can begin suddenly as a result of an accident, or lifting something heavy, or it can develop over time as we age. A strenuous workout without an appropriate warm-up can also cause back pain.
