Osteopathy - It's More Than Just Backs!

Most people we see have spinal related pain – this means neck, upper back and lower back pain; a lot do gain benefit from treatment:

"I booked a last minute appointment and was not disappointed. Harry took the time to listen to me and helped me understand my history. I felt an immediate improvement after one visit and he advised me of exercises to do at home"

Whole Body Treatment

Many are surprised, however, when we tell them that we can help other areas of the body just as effectively. We always consider the whole body when it comes to treating an area of pain; especially when it comes on for no apparent reason.

There are often factors that predispose the pain – this can be a restricted joint, a weaker than optimal muscle, your sleeping patterns, and whether you’re particularly under stress at that point in time. It’s all important and it’s all relevant.

What Can We Treat

The Advertising Standards Agency (who are responsible for setting the gold standard for what healthcare professionals say they can treat) are confident that osteopathy is effective in treating the following:

  • Arthritic pain
  • Circulatory problems

  • Frozen shoulder/ shoulder and elbow pain/ tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) arising from associated musculoskeletal conditions of the back and neck, but not isolated occurrences

We Want To Help You

Although very gentle, there are some occasions where osteopathic treatment isn’t suitable for an individual. If this is the case, we will advise you what route will provide you with the most benefit and this may include referring you to your GP for a check-up.

If you have a long-standing condition or are under the care of you GP, it may be worth checking with them or giving us a ring before booking. As Allied Health professionals (currently in England, Scotland soon!) osteopaths are in a fantastic position to work with other health care professionals to facilitate the best possible care for your condition.
