How Treatment Works

At The Back Clinic, we specialize in addressing back pain caused by injury, aging, chronic conditions, or as a preventative measure to avoid surgery.

Our Approach

Our approach begins with a thorough assessment, tailoring treatment to your specific needs. Depending on the cause and severity of your pain, a team of clinicians including physiotherapists, biokineticists, and doctors collaborates throughout your treatment. This teamwork and consistent communication results in faster recovery and lasting relief.

Why Our Treatment is so Effective

Our collaborative approach is integral to the DBC Protocol, a scientifically proven and conservative treatment program renowned for its effectiveness in managing and reducing back and neck pain.

FAQ

Do I have to travel between practices?

No, your team is based at 1 practice

How often do I get treatment?

A comprehensive assessment is done during your first appointment. This will determine how much treatment you need: a few sessions, 3-week program (2 sessions per week), or 6-week program (2 sessions per week).

Will treatment help me get off my chronic pain medication?

The program is designed to alleviate your pain and improve your function, as a result many of our patients reduce their need for chronic medication. This process is overseen by a doctor. Do not reduce your own medication without supervision from a doctor

Will my medical aid cover my treatment?

Most major medical aids are accepted. Some cover treatment in full, some in part, and for some, treatment is paid for from your savings. The cash cost will depend on how much treatment you need. We will check your benefits before your first appointment. Speak to a bookings agent.
