Woodthorpe Hospital Spine & Neck Services

We offer expert advice and treatment for chronic back pain


Back and neck pain is common and there are many reasons why it occurs. It might be that you’ve lifted something incorrectly, bent awkwardly, you’ve poor posture, you’re suffering from injury (whiplash, a fracture), or you may have a disease or age related condition (arthritis, degeneration). Most often back and neck pain will disappear on its own but sometimes it continues for six weeks or more. This is known as chronic back or neck pain and it’s important to see a doctor if this is the case. They will assess your pain and offer advice on how to manage your pain. Your lifestyle may be contributing to your pain and by making changes your pain could be relieved.

Our back pain assessment clinic offers a clinical examination of your back and neck pain as well as advice and referrals to: one of our highly experienced spine and neck specialists, our imaging department for diagnostic tests or one of our senior chartered physiotherapists for treatment. We have a large team of spinal specialists who can discuss in detail your specific complaint and the best treatment options available including pain relieving injections and surgery.
