The Back Clinic provides back and neck pain treatment in Johannesburg, Bloemfontein and Port Elizabeth. We also treat knee, ankle and shoulder pain among others. We offer treatment for pre and post-surgery conditions and sports related injuries. Our therapists employ the DBC protocol, which uses DBC machines and treatment methods developed in Finland over 30 years ago.
Our Doctors, and physiotherapists work alongside a team of biokineticists who treat patients on specialised DBC machinery. Using pain management and exercise based methods, patients gain core strength and reduce pain over time. This combination is very useful because, while physiotherapy provides relief for pain, biokinetics develops muscle mobility and strength that aids in pain management over the long term.
Some medical aids cover treatment of neck or back pain, from risk (this simply means that your medical savings are not depleted, and in some cases you can receive treatment on a hospital plan). For more information on the medical aids that cover treatment visit this page.
