Working long hours on your computer or grinding through the daily commute can be a real pain in the neck (or back!). Those annoying niggles from sport, work or garden can contribute to a crisis situation and that can mean sleep disruption and painful time away from the game or your job.
A thorough assessment of your symptoms to create a targeted management plan for you will help get you back to what you enjoy doing faster. Other investigations such as Xrays, podiatry, reports or phonecalls to your GP can be arranged if necessary.

The buzz word of late is the "core" ie those muscles situated around the pelvic floor and lower abdominal region . Much research has shown them to be essential for stability of the spine and indeed for efficient movement and control of the whole body. Weakness of the pelvic floor and poor continence has often been the missing link for successful treatment of the spine especially for women after childbirth. With a little coaching and a lot of practice you can find these muscles and get them switched on again.
