If you’re suffering from back pain, you are not alone. 4 out of 5 Britons will suffer from backache or pain at some time in their lives. The good news is that 95% of low back pain is “non-specific”. This means that it is NOT due to serious damage or disease and won’t need a scan or x-ray. For this type of back pain a combined approach of education, exercise and hands on massage, stretching and mobilisation treatment can really help.
How Osteopathy can help
Our osteopaths use soft tissue massage, joint manipulation, stretching and relaxation techniques to help to encourage normal movement and muscle tone in the sore or stiff areas. We look at your posture and examine you as a whole to see if other areas are contributing to your pain. Postural advice and exercises to rehabilitate you are integral to our approach. We want you to learn how to help yourself get better and where possible avoid future injury.
I’m always happy to talk to you about your specific pain or problem prior to booking an appointment.
