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.

The best overall experience I've ever had seeing a doctor. Came over from the US for a second opinion on MRI and CT Scans. Saw 3 doctors in one week and was about to give up from misguided diagnosis. At the last moment we booked an appointment was seen same day. Dr Outhwaite was extremely knowledgeable, thorough, patient in his explanations and our questions. A+++ experience. If only I had seen him sooner I could have saved tens of thousands of dollars. Thank you Dr. Outhwaite and team!!!
