The Back Clinic offers treatment for chronic: back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain and knee pain. Our typical 6 week treatment programme is short, helps you to manage pain and is an effective way for managing pain*. We employ a combination of exercises and use specialised machinery to treat the source of pain and not just the symptoms. As a result our treatment has maintained an average 83% success rate in avoiding back and other related surgeries to date from inception.
Treatment is administered by a combination of doctors, physiotherapists and biokineticists, eliminating the need for multiple doctor and specialist visits. More importantly select medical aids cover the cost of treatment from group risk, which means your medical aid savings account will not be depleted through the use of our services, and, if your medical aid covers the treatment, you will not have to pay out-of-pocket for treatment.
The Back Clinic’s treatment is low risk. We use DBC protocol – methodology founded in Finland over 30 years ago, that combines exercise and machinery for the treatment of musculoskeletal pain. Our treatment cycle lasts for between 3 weeks to 6 weeks, or more, depending on the patient’s needs. We do not conduct surgery and therefore no overnight hospital stays are required. We therefore, in many cases see results within these 3 to 6 weeks of treatment compared to the possible 6 month period with surgery.
