Clinical excellence – Back and neck pain
At Sydney Spine & Sports Centre (S3C), we are dedicated to being your best resource in muscle, joint, back and neck pain using a combination of chiropractic and physiotherapy treatments. We use treatments that are effective, safe and reliable. We don’t use one treatment as a ‘magic bullet’ but combine specific treatments to target your specific causes of low back and neck pain.
This is what our Sydney chiropractors and physiotherapists do:
1. We diagnose or categorise
Our Balmain and Rozelle chiropractors and physiotherapists examine your medical history and get you to undertake a physical exam. This allows us to give you an accurate diagnosis of the structure causing your pain. In some cases, a specific structure cannot be clearly determined, even with special imagining such as MRI and CT scan, so in these cases we typically categorise your neck or back pain. This is the gold standard.
Specific diagnosis and categorisation ultimately means we are able to deliver specific and targeted treatment at the cause of your low back or neck pain. Without this, it is very had to offer reliable, consistent, safe and effective treatments for back and neck pain.Read more about our approach to neck and back pain
