Your care will be led by our specialist spinal or orthopaedic consultants, supported by orthopaedic nursing staff, consultant radiologists and chartered physiotherapists. 

Back and neck pain is common and there are many reasons why it occurs. It might be that you’ve lifted something incorrectly, bent awkwardly, you’ve poor posture, you’re suffering from injury (whiplash, a fracture), or you may have a disease or age related condition (arthritis, degeneration). Most often back and neck pain will disappear on its own but sometimes it continues for six weeks or more. This is known as chronic back or neck pain and it’s important to see a doctor if this is the case. They will assess your pain and offer advice on how to manage your pain. Your lifestyle may be contributing to your pain and by making changes your pain could be relieved.
