Affecting four out of five people at some times in their lives, this is the most common complaint treated by osteopaths. Most cases, whilst painful, are not serious if seen to promptly. Alison will be able to offer you a diagnosis and advice, as well as treatment.
An osteopath can usually successfully identify and treat the most common causes of sciatica.
Joint & muscle strain – shoulders, elbows, hands, hips, knees and feet
Osteopaths are often associated with treating back pain. However, they also identify and treat the causes of pain in many parts of the body including the hips, legs, knees, ankles, feet, wrists, elbows, shoulders, arms and ribs.
Osteopathic treatment can be of benefit to sports people of all levels. Whether you are trying to get fit but are worried that you may be doing more harm than good, are eager to get back to your sport quickly after injury, or have a problem that is preventing you from performing at your best.
Responsible for a great change in posture, pregnancy may cause back pain and discomfort. Many women find gentle osteopathic treatment can bring great relief. It may also help with many of the low back and pelvic problems that can follow childbirth.
Osteoarthritis is the process of wear and tear, usually associated with ageing. Although osteopathy cannot reverse the effect of wear and tear on the joint surfaces, it may offer relief from pain and stiffness, allowing more general activity with less pain.
In the same way that you visit your dentist to reduce the chance of fillings, regular checks can allow potential problems to be detected and treated before they develop. Preventative treatment and advice can be a worthwhile investment in your long-term health and comfort.
