There are at least two different types of chronic back pain problems, the first being chronic pain that is due to an identifiable pain generator and the second being chronic pain that has no identifiable pain generator.
Chronic pain due to an identifiable pain generator – There are certain structural spine conditions that can cause ongoing pain until they are successfully treated, these conditions are due to a diagnosable anatomical problem.
Chronic pain with no identifiable pain generator – This is where pain continues beyond the point of tissue healing and there is no clearly identifiable pain generator that explains the pain.

An initial consultation
There are a number of treatments that can help with chronic back pain however, in order for us to establish the most suitable for you you must come into one of our clinics for a consultation. This is where we will examine your back and will discuss your back pain, your medical history and your symptoms. After we have done so we will have a better idea of what treatment is best suited for you and will be able to arrange further appointments for treatment to get started. We will discuss what the treatment is and what is involved along with the costs that are associated with the treatment. You will also be able to ask us any questions that you may have about the treatment.
