where you can discuss your symptoms and find a solution to your individual circumstances.

What should I wear?
It is usually necessary to ask you to remove some items of clothing to expose your back for examination and treatment. For your comfort, and to avoid embarrassment, you may wish to wear loose clothing such as tracksuit bottoms (leggings for women) or shorts so you can be examined and treated without removing these.

If you have any special concerns over what you need to wear or what items of clothing you may need to remove please contact the clinic before your consultation or ask when you first enter the consulting room.

If you wish you can ask for a chaperone or bring a friend or relative to you consultation.

Can I have an urgent appointment?
If we know you are in urgent need, we will do our utmost to see you as soon as we can. Call the clinic and explain your situation or ask to speak to Nic directly.

On the rare occasion that it is impossible to see you on the same day it may be possible to give you advice over the phone to ease your pain.

How long is an appointment?
There is no fixed amount of time for an appointment although they are generally in the region of

45-60 minutes for your first consultation and treatment and 30-45 minutes for following appointments.

Some appointments may be shorter as it is possible to over treat a condition. Rest assured that the best possible treatment for your individual circumstances will be given at all times.

How long will it take to get better?
Your rate of recovery will depend on several factors including your age, general health, sensitivity to treatment, type of work, as well as your condition. As a general rule most patients will see relief from their symptoms in 3-4 treatments.

Needless to say those patients that are pro-active in their treatment and who follow the advice given to accompany their treatment generally progress better.

Can I phone between treatments?
Of course you can. If you have any new problems or concerns between treatments it is better that you phone than be anxious or suffer in silence. If it is impossible to talk to you when you phone your call will be returned as soon as possible.
Is it necessary for patients to see their GP first?

Can patients comment on the quality of service?
Of course you can. If you have any new problems or concerns between treatments it is better that you phone than be anxious or suffer in silence. If it is impossible to talk to you when you phone your call will be returned as soon as possible.

What our Clients Say…

"Very simple and non invasive treatment and haven’t had a twinge since!"

– Alice S (Age 27)

"I have been to Osteopaths and Chiropractors since the age of 19"

“I have been to Osteopaths and Chiropractors since the age of 19 with very little success. If only I had come across Nic then it would have been a different story.

Flexibility and straightness are key to my job, Decorating and Sports Dressage.

He has improved both of these more than I ever thought possible.”

– Cheryl G (Age 47)

"Pain removed after 3 visits."

“I am a 39 year old male that is on his feet all day at work, and had resigned myself to the fact that my back had clearly had its day and I was in for pain and discomfort for the rest of my life! How wrong I was.

I visited Nic 3 times, he treated me, taught me how to look after my back and how it works, it’s the best thing I have done in ages! Since seeing Nic I have not had any pain or discomfort and I actually feel 10 years younger…Read More

"At 36 my Doctor told me there was nothing more the NHS could do"

“At 36 my Doctor told me there was nothing more the NHS could do for my mobility issues and that I would just have to manage as best I could with Pain killers. I had suffered a Herniated Disc in my lower Back some six months before and had received various NHS treatments, none of which had worked. Nic at the Back Clinic gave me my life back, after only a few sessions, I could walk, bend and show dogs again, something I had been told by various people wouldn’t be possible in the future. I was actually pain free again for the first time in a year and I could do all that I wished with my life. Without Nic’s expert treatment my life would be a fraction of what it is today. Thanks for fixing me once again.”

John H (age 39)

"Finally I have found something that works!"

“Finally I have found something that works! After suffering with chronic acute exasperated back pain since I was 16, nerve damage and having two major trauma’s to my back I was in complete despair. I found myself on a large dosage of pain medications, anti inflammatory and muscle relaxers. I had lost my job and spent 4 months in bed unable to move. My massage therapist recommended to me the Back Clinic. so I thought why not give it a try. After just one session I was totally stunned at the results I not only felt but could see with my back and my posture. I can still remember to this day my utter amazement when I walked for the first time after my back had been gently manipulated. This is a miracle and I still say that today. The pain has gone, I can move more freely and I can be active again…Read More

I felt I had grown a couple of inches

I am a 24 year old female Soldier and currently deployed in Afghanistan. Due to my work responsibilities I have to carry a lot of weight on my back, as you can imagine this causes a lot of stress to it. After visiting Nic in Eye I felt I had grown a couple of inches and the relief i felt afterwards was amazing. Highly recommended to anyone with back problems. Thank you.

As the result of a road accident

I was fortunate enough to find Nic Aldous when I moved to Suffolk. Having suffered acute neck and back pain as a result of a road accident I was desperate to find treatment to make my life bearable. How lucky was I! After only 4 sessions my movement was so much better and my pain reduced by 80%… Read More

I suffered for some time

I suffered for some time with neck and back pain which was causing me constant headaches, I now go for treatment when I feel it is needed to keep pain free.

Emma R

Nic really got me straightened out – literally!!

“After years of struggling with a lop sided posture with one hip visibly higher than the other and regular bouts of low back pain, four visits to Nic had me standing straight and tall and my back has given me no further problems. I will definitely be attending Nic’s back pain clinic for check up sessions to keep me pain free from now on.”
