Special questions and hands on testing tell us what is
causing your pain and how it can be treated. Our website
gives information on common problems with the spinal
discs and joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons as well
as referred pain. Nerves, like the sciatic nerve,
come out of the back and can send pain down the leg
Established or ‘Chronic’ Pain
The longer you have pain the more your brain becomes
involved, so that after a few months of pain there are
established pain pathways independent of the original
damage. Our website gives lots of information on the
common causes of back pain and chronic pain.

Hands-On Immediate Relief
We will use our hands to get rid of your pain quickly
and thoroughly using techniques like massage, joint
manipulation and mobilisation, acupuncture and taping.
Keep moving as much as you can, alternate warm and
cool packs and avoid sitting or lying slumped.
Research is conclusive that this is the best way to treat
and prevent back pain. Build-up in small increments and
pace yourself in ALL aggravating activities. Getting your
heart and lungs pumping has multiple benefits including
endorphins and increased circulation.
Correct Your Movement
You need to improve the way your back moves so that
excessive forces do not go through the wrong structures,
causing damage. Analysis and correction of how your
back is moving is therefore key, whether sitting at a desk
- see video 43 - or going for a run - see video 05.
Exercises & Stretches
For the videos go to www.octopusclinic.com
Pelvic Floor & Deep Abdominals
These muscles support your lower back and pelvis. Put one hand on your upper abdomen and focus on breathing
gently from here. Put the other hand on your lower abdomen. Gently switch on the muscles that stop you opening
your bladder and bowels. Maintain your lower back curve throughout. Progress by adding arm and leg movements.
See videos 07-10 & 01-04.
A stiff upper back is a common cause of back pain. Sitting up straight, turn your body and reach around to hold the
back of the chair. Keep your feet on the floor and pull yourself gently around to slowly rotate your upper back. Make
sure it is completely pain free. Repeat x 10 in both directions. See video 67.
Pelvic Tilts in Sitting
Shuffle forwards to give yourself space. Create a concavity in your lower back by tipping your pelvis forwards and
then flatten and round your back the other way by tucking your tail bone under. Repeat x 10. See video 46.
