At Back in Balance, we have experts in lower back pain treatment right here at our Bristol clinic.

It’s important to understand that pain usually improves with the right treatment, even if you have had it for many years. Practitioners at the Back in Balance clinic play a very important role in this treatment.

We coach people so they can take back control of their back pain, making the area stronger and more resilient than ever before, so they can get back to doing the things they love without pain holding them back. Get in touch with us today with any concerns you might have.

Treatment of back pain

If your pain is acute (sudden onset), the key to your back pain treatment is to help you to get comfortable and moving as this helps with recovery. We will also identify the factors that caused the pain in your back and make a treatment plan to prevent it in the future.

If your pain is persistent (longer than 6-12 weeks), we will work out a plan with you to help you take control of your pain, and get back to living based on your goals.

Back pain treatment may involve some hands-on techniques to relax you and get you moving, coaching you in body relaxation, training you to restore relaxed spinal movement, helping you to get stronger and more confident in your back, so you can resume physical activity without pain. 

For some people this may take 2-3 sessions; however, for long term problems, this may take up to 7-10 sessions over a 3-4 month period.

A long-term plan is the key to prevent pain from recurring and stop it interfering in your life. At Back in Balance, we are not interested in ongoing band-aid treatments for your pain. We know that the best approach to management is to help you understand why you have pain and what can be done about it, to put you back in control, moving more, and living life again.

I’ve been receiving first class treatment from Josh Gill, an Osteopath at the clinic, concerning a reccuring injury with tendon weakness spanning over 4 years. I was very depressed and using crutches, with little confidence I could engage in sport again.

The hands on treatment and rehab exercises have been invaluable and have sped up my recovery time. He really takes the time to explain body mechanics and healing, with a very encouraging and positive approach. I no longer need crutches or any kind of foot support. I’m really looking forward to resuming my varied fitness regime again.

I have been suffering with my back on and off for years now due to spending large portions of my working day hunched over fixing bikes. A friend recommended I go see Josh. I’d never seen an osteo before but i’m so glad I went.

My back has been so much better while at work, not just from the treatments but all the advice I was given about how to hold myself at work and exercises I can do when the pain starts. This was great value and well worth the money! Thank you

– Jamie Acres

I highly recommend the treatments given by Josh. Last Autumn my back consultant suggested spinal injections followed by probable surgery to relieve my back and leg pain. I was treated by Josh and have been pain free since then. No injections. No surgery. Josh is a highly skilled osteopath. I felt he was extremely knowledgeable. He was professional and at the same time very caring and reassuring. I will certainly return if ever I have a skeletal problem again. Thank you Josh, I recommend you to everyone.

– Sheila Elmer

Josh has treated me for multiple acute injuries and several long term/postural problems I’ve had. You see results very fast and he doesn’t try drag things out over multiple sessions like a lot of therapists. The information and instructions he gave me have really helped to improve my overall health and reduce my injury’s, he’s on the cutting edge of evidence based practice for sure. Would definitely recommend 10/10
