Non surgical solutions to spine (back and neck) pain and nerve pain

Many people with back and neck pain have suffered for a number of years without any response to conservative treatments such as physiotherapy, acupuncture, massage or chiropractic care.  When these therapies fail to provide relief, the next step is often referral to a spinal surgeon. While surgery is the best option for some people, the risks often outweigh the benefits and if you are in this situation, your are probably feeling anxious and frustrated.


Fortunately, we can offer a number of non-surgical techniques to manage most painful spine and nerve pain conditions.


Dr.Ravindran is highly qualified and certified by the Faculty of Pain Medicine, and he specialises in performing these techniques. He will focus on accurately diagnosing and treating the true source of the pain, often using live X-ray and ultrasound to guide these minimally invasive treatments for neck and back pain.
