Why choose the DBC Treatment Program

Proven results

In 2023 alone, The Back Clinic helped 2500 patients relieve their back and neck pain. Our evidence-based practises ensure you receive a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs, backed by documented success stories.

Faster and lasting results

The DBC programme is designed to be efficient and deliver results in 3-6 weeks. Our goal is to help you regain control of your life without prolonging or unnecessarily delaying treatment.

3 in 1 medical team

Your treatment plan is the result of the collaboration of a multidisciplinary team of medical professionals (doctor, physiotherapist and biokineticist). Your assessment and treatment will be carried out and managed by your team, who will work together throughout your treatment to give you the fastest and most effective results in one place.

Cost Saving

Our aim is to offer a treatment lasting a few weeks that provides faster recovery and reduces dependence on medication. A treatment of a few weeks with long-lasting relief compared to chronic medication over 12 months = significant cost savings and better quality of life.

How is the DBC Program Different from other treatment or seeing a specialist?

DBC vs standard physical therapy

The DBC program is based on science and uses the latest research and developments in pain management. We use specialised machines and document-based progress monitoring to achieve faster recovery and lasting results.

Avoid Surgery

The DBC program offers a conservative alternative for people who want to avoid surgery. We have helped hundreds of people avoid surgery and helped them heal stronger than before. If surgery is unavoidable, we will refer you to a specialist.

Post-Surgery Recovery

For those who have undergone surgery, our DBC program is an effective and efficient treatment option for post-surgery recovery. We work closely with you and your medical history to design a program that supports your recovery process.

Individualized Care and Education

Every patient is unique, and so is their pain experience. The DBC program provides individualised care to ensure that your treatment plan is tailored specifically to your needs, preferences and health goals. We believe that informed patients make better decisions about their health. Our programme includes thorough patient education that empowers you to understand the causes of your pain and actively participate in your treatment

Had a great experience at The Back Clinic! I started and was in constant pain. After 3 weeks I was so much better and after 6 weeks I am not constantly aware of my pain. The Biokineticists push you during your sessions but with the exercises for home you won’t believe the difference it makes and how strong you feel. The Physios are amazing and really focus on what part of your back and neck need the focus at each session and really assist in making a difference with your pain and stiffness. The staff are all so friendly and helpful. You are immediately at ease. I would recommend The Back Clinic to anyone struggling with back and/or neck pain. Do yourself a favour and come for an assessment with the great doctor to start living pain free.

Nicola Cruywagen

I am 24 and suffered from a ruptured disc. The neurosurgeon recommended a spinal fusion and wanted to operate on me the next morning. A family member recommended The Back Clinic and I decided to see if they could help. Needless to say my life has completely changed, between Cocoa and Gerry they have gotten me to a point that is arguably better than before the disc rupture. In less than 8 weeks too. Never been to a medical so professional and hands on.

This clinic is managed very professionally from the point of managing appointments to the process of Doctor consultation, Physiotherapy and Biokinetics. I have been on a 6 week program thus far and there is tremendous improvement on my neck and back pain. They are highly recommended. A very good personal interaction with their patients from all who are employed in this clinic.

Mr Coetzee

Had back problems for the longest time but 3 weeks at The Back Clinic sorted all of that out. They identified the issue and gave corrective measures which were effective from day 1. I would highly recommend them they are pro’s plus you get an all in one with physio, back doctor, etc
