Back and Neck Therapy Auckland - Phil Parker



I'm Phil Parker, an Auckland resident for 37 years.  For  22 of those years I have been treating acute and long term back and neck joint  problems.  My approach is the Golden Rule - don't do anything to others that you wouldn't have done to yourself.

 And being a sufferer of back and neck pain for many years, believe me, I know what it's like to have a stuck, acutely painful neck or back!
I believe that a gentle approach is best -and that's how I approach treating back and neck pain in my Auckland clinic.

In 1999 I developed a very gentle manual therapy method for the treatment of acute one sided low back pain (with, or without sciatica)
this technique was so effective that I saw patients progress from acute low back pain so severe that they could not sit or stand - to   compelete relief within two or three brief sessions.  In fact, I published an article on this technique in New Zealand and presented it to a conference of my  peers in 2000.

My treatment approach has four elements:

  • Hands on diagnosis

  • Deep tissue friction mobilisation & massage

  • Gentle manual joint traction and mobilisation

    And ... ongoing exercise and lifestyle advice to maintain the benefits of treatment
