What do you get?

Meet the Clinicians

BackPain.online has been developed by expert spinal clinicians - BSc Hons and M.Ost qualified.

We have run a clinical practice for 25 years, and still treat people in clinic every day. It's a multi-discipline centre of clinical excellence, using the very latest thinking and best practice to support people. We have helped over 5,000 people with their back pain. One of the main ways we help people is by showing them how to help themselves when they’re on their own.

This approach to expert, guided self-help plays a huge part in their recovery.

Cutting-edge Technology

Along with helping people in their day-to-day activities, we also work with professional athletes and elite sports people. Since 2014 this includes a leading Formula 1 race team. Treating them both in person and supporting them remotely helped us form our idea of how we could extend that remote, expert help to others.

So we developed a programme where we could help many more. And BackPain.Online was born. Working with the latest cutting-edge technology, we take everything we do in clinic and bring it to you online – it is a digital, multi-discipline centre of excellence.

After 25 years’ experience in helping people with back pain, I see the best results when we show people how to help themselves. I wanted to design online therapy that would be like having an expert on hand whenever people need it. And that’s exactly what this does. It also means we can reach more people than just those we can see in clinic. Digital health has truly arrived.

I’m an ex-professional dancer. I had years of treatment myself. And this inspired me to learn how to treat others. I have first-hand experience of the importance of self-management when it comes to back pain. One of the most important aspects of my work is showing people how to support themselves properly and I’m excited to make this widely available to more people.
