Back and Neck Pain


The statistics tell us that 80% of us will have at least one significant episode of back/neck pain – so it can happen to most of us at some time and at any age! 



A headache is a common, often debilitating condition that affects 96% of people at some time in their life.

Sports Injuries


Many of us love our sport, watching or playing. Those of us who play sport are likely to pick up the occasional injury which can keep us away from our passion. This applies equally to the weekend netballer or the serious athlete.
