Our Services A-Z

Spinal Treatment Service

Patients with back or neck problems can be referred into the spinal treatment service where an expert clinician will review the referral to decide which clinic would best suit your needs.

If you require an appointment for assessment/treatment you will be sent instructions on how to book into the relevant clinic.

This may be an appointment in one of the following clinics: 

  • A spinal physiotherapy clinic (otherwise referred to as a Tier 1 clinic).The physiotherapist will assess your needs and determine a treatment/management plan with you.
  • A specialist spinal assessment clinic (otherwise referred to as a Tier 2 clinic).The senior clinician will assess your needs and determine a treatment/management plan with you. If a scan or x-ray is required as part of your care this will be arranged and the team has access to a range of spinal specialists if necessary.

If we don't think that our service can help you we will link with your GP to suggest alternative options.
