Back pain is extremely common, in fact the reality is most people will experience a bout of back pain at some point in there lifetime.
Although it can be very painful its often nothing to worry about and usually just the effects of gravity and time on the spinal joints. These joints are called zygapophysial joints or facet joints and are by far the most common reason for patients to present at clinic.
Osteopathic Spinal Manipulation or OMT can be extremely effective in resolving both the pain and stiffness associated with back pain and is a recommended intervention by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) for both acute and chronic back pain.
