"Managing back pain"

About: Surrey PCT

(as the patient),

i have had problems with my back for some years - NHS does not provide osteo but good on physio - good service, in the end it was my decision to stop seeking treatment and manage it myself with 1. maintain fitness 2. back strengthening (pilates - inner core) 3. pain relief. BAck problems are one of those things that patients often must manage themselves. My last visit to the GP was very successful, came away with no prescription or referral but lot's of good advice - in my experience, this is fairly unusual.
