Are you SICK and TIRED of waiting MONTHS ​​ ​​​​​for the NHS to get rid of your pain? Why wait when you could come to one of the highest rated private clinic in Newcastle & ​​​​​save up-to 65% off your first appointment

Lower back pain will affect around 80% of the population at some point of their life.

Thankfully, most people don’t have to put up with it for too long as the damage that causes the pain isn’t too serious.

For anyone who has it longer than just a couple of weeks consecutively, or if it keeps coming back….that is known as CHRONIC LOWER BACK PAIN. (chronic isn’t the level of pain, it is the length of time it has been there [its a common misconception!])


Either way, usually that means that you have damaged your back so extensively that it hasn’t been able to mend it back to 100%. When that happens, scar tissue formation occurs and then your back is more likely to become more stiff, more stuck and less able to put up with normal daily demands.


That may be


  • playing with kids or grand kids
  • Working to provide for others
  • Not enjoying exercise as much

…and more


If that is the case, we are very well suited to getting you ‘back on track’


How do we know that?


Since opening we have seen (at the time of writing) more than 13879 people through the doors, with the majority of them having problems in their lower back.


We have invested heavily into diagnostic equipment and technology that can help us assist in finding the exact cause of your lower back pain and effectively treating it.


We don’t like to take chances with health, so we allays make sure prior to any treatment we will always do a thorough assessment and sit you down to talk about what options you have to getting it sorted.  If this sounds like something you want to try, then click on the ‘consultation’ button at the top of this page to get a discounted first assessment

When I first came to this Clinic l was in so much pain l couldn't straight on my back, was on a cocktail of pain killers, l thought this was what my life was going to be like. l saw John who said he could help me and weeks down the road l am able to stand up straight walk without any pain and the plus side l have managed to reduce my painkillers by more than half, and l am so happy. John is a really lovely man, he is very honest with you, l couldn't recommend him enough. The staff are all very nice and helpful.

I first went to shield clinic with a frozen shoulder and lower back pain. The frozen shoulder stopped me swimming, doing yoga and also normal activities like decorating. At 53 I had started to accept that nothing could be done, but after 2 visits to John my shoulder freed up and after 12 sessions my shoulder was back to normal with total movement and no pain, and my lower back pain was gone. I now visit once a month or so but I’ve got my old life back. I can’t thank John enough!
