Musculo-Skeletal Pain

Musculo-skeletal (MSK) conditions account for 30% of GP consultations with Low back and neck pain the most common and the greatest cause of disability.

98% of back and neck pain is not serious but can be extremely painful and a leading cause of longer term ‘chronic’ illness.

At The Spine Team our Integrated Care approach involves diagnosing, treating, rehabilitating and preventing low back and neck pain and other MSK disorders using the Patient Centred Model.

The Patient Centred Model recognises that each individual patient is unique, as is their life. Integrated care starts by understanding and explaining not just what is wrong but why and treatment includes supporting life change to help them take control.

Sometimes a painful episode stands alone, it is a first episode and the reason is obvious. However most episodes of back pain appear for no good reason, either suddenly or gradually, or have a tendency to re-occur without apparent cause. Treating the problem as it appears is therefore not likely to solve it, understanding how the problem has developed and changing that requires a more integrated approach, understanding you and your life in a holistic way and helping you change the things that allow this to happen is the answer.


Labels such as ‘slipped disc’, ‘crumbling vertebra’, ‘arthritis’ or ‘sciatica’, are very often given without explanation or evidence. It is our aim to correctly inform these patients so they can understand their problem and be part of their own solution.


Very occasionally back pain is due to another illness and our expertise and experience is important in identifying those cases early, please help us by telling us everything even if it does not seem important.
