Do you have a “dull ache” or “sharp pain” in your lower back?

Your lower back is a complex symphony of components: tendons, muscles, sensitive nerves, delicate nerve roots, joints, and spinal discs.

If just one of these elements gets irritated, it can lead to debilitating lower back pain, which may radiate into other areas, making routine movements a challenge.

It isn't just an ailment; it's a serious interruption to your life. Often accompanied by muscle spasms, the pain can be both immobilising and intense, differing widely in severity from person to person. While a minor strain may paralyse one person, another might barely notice a degenerating disc.

There's no sugarcoating it – lower back pain is relentless. Twisting, bending, or even trying to rest can become a feat of endurance. Whether you’re moving or sitting still, the pain persists, along with stiffness and loss of mobility that can sideline you from sports, everyday tasks, or simply enjoying a walk.
It takes a toll on every area of your life.

When the aches linger beyond a week, the likelihood of a spontaneous recovery is close to zero. The longer you wait, the greater the risk of worsening symptoms. GPs commonly prescribe “rest and painkillers”, but this outdated approach contributes to the grim reality of chronic back pain. And when these standard remedies like heat packs, anti-inflammatories, or hot baths fail, it's easy to resign to a life dictated by pain, to believe it's an inevitable consequence of ageing. It's also distressing to endure pain when you don’t know what’s causing it, especially when you're bombarded with conflicting advice everywhere you turn.

We've been helping people aged 40+ to find relief from acute and chronic back pain for the last 20 years. I can tell you without hesitation that more rest and more painkillers are the road to nowhere – a vicious cycle that leads you in the opposite direction to finding and fixing the root cause. 

When people come to see us the most popular question they ask is:

“What’s Going On?”...


“Why Am I Still Suffering From Back Pain After 6+ Months?”

It’s tempting to hope back pain will go away on its own. But gritting your teeth and popping painkillers can be harmful to your stomach. Long rest periods (the standard recommendation from GPs) are no good either because things seize up and worsen without movement. It's a rock and a hard place.

Imagine for a moment what your life will be like in five years. If you don't fix your back pain now… Will you have to stop working? Lose your independence? End friendships and relationships or get divorced?

Will your grandchildren stop visiting?

With our guidance, there is better way.

We don't believe in a passive approach. Why wait when you can take proactive steps towards recovery now? Don't let chronic back pain and dependency on pain medication define your life any longer.

Regain control, movement, and comfort and say goodbye to back pain for good.

“I came to physiotherapy because my back problem was affecting my lower back and led to a hamstring injury. Other treatments only masked the issue. The physiotherapist identified my back as the root cause and prescribed exercises. Now, I'm 100% better, aiming to play football for years to come.”



“Physiotherapy helped me immensely. Initially, I could barely walk due to sciatic nerve pain. Now, I'm back to gardening and playing golf with a different approach, always mindful of my back. The best part? Being out of pain. I'd recommend it to anyone suffering. It's been truly life-changing.”



“Physiotherapy and Pilates have been life-changing. Initially, I joined for Pilates to address lower back issues from gym mishaps. The difference in mobility and core strength is incredible. I've regained strength and reduced pain. Mental health-wise, it's been transformative. Highly recommend!”
