Back pain

Back pain is a common condition of life and is the single most common cause of lost working days in the UK.

Back pain encompasses a wide variety of conditions including non-specific lower back pain due to sprained and strained ligaments or muscles, degenerative changes, scoliosis or kyposis or symptomatic spondylolisthesis. Patients may also have spinal pain secondary to non-mechanical disorders such as infection, osteoporotic fractures, seronegative arthritis or problems arriving in the abdomen. Symptoms can be acute relapsing low back pain or continuous back ache.

Our back and spine experts will diagnose the causes of your particular back problem and create a treatment plan to help relieve your back pain. Treatment can include physical therapy, medication optimisation, surgery and image guided spinal procedures including pain relieving injections.

Dr. Outhwaite is brilliant. I have seen many consultants before for my issue however, Dr. Outhwaite understood the issue. He identified the rare condition I have and immediately acting on allevating the symptoms. Very impressed by Dr. Outhwaite!
