A recent study has shown that chronic back pain, which has lasted many years, responds well to a combination of Physiotherapy exercises and Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).
A trial conducted on 245 patients showed a significant reduction in pain relief and a dramatic reduction in the use of painkillers after an eight week programme.
CBT is something that can be organised through your local GP.
Physiotherapy exercises, advice and guidance can be provided by us at Jonathan Clark Physiotherapy at any of our four clinics across Southampton. Other treatments that have proven to be useful are manual therapy and acupuncture, both of which we offer.
