Back Active is not a new organisation rather it is the updated name and for what was previously known as Back2Health in Southsea, Midhurst and our NHS spinal service. The Back2Health brand was introduced 22 years ago when the understanding of how to treat problems with muscle, joints and spine problems was based on the idea that health care providers delivered health – providing a permanent cure, with patients largely being passive recipients of treatment. As science and guidelines have moved on the focus of is increasingly towards patient being active participants in their care and helping them learn to look after themselves.
To reflect these changes we have rebranded as Back Active with a new logo. I hope you agree the change of branding gives us a more up to-date feel and also illustrates that the focus of the service we provide is in helping those we treat to regain activity and a full rich quality of life.

Osteopathy is an established recognised system of diagnosis and treatment, which lays its main emphasis on the structural and functional integrity of the body.
Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. They maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease.
