Our Treatments

Current guidelines from NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) now recommend both manual therapy (including spinal manipulation, spinal mobilisation and massage) and acupuncture in the treatment of lower back pain.

As an Osteopath I treat with an understanding that your body acts as a whole unit. In order for optimum health to be achieved, the body as a unit needs attention. That could be in the form of soft-tissue techniques, muscular/skeletal adjustment, joint mobilisation, stretching, dietary advice, exercise programmes, or just advice on the best direction to take. Treatments are tailored to suit the individual and by using these techniques we can achieve better function and less pain. Should MRI scans be needed, these can be sourced quickly to an outside provider.

Once your treatment plan has ended, it will be important for you to continue with exercises aimed at maintaining both flexibility, strength and stability

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear?
As with any medical examination, you may be asked to undress to your underwear, so please wear something you are comfortable in.
Can I bring a friend or relative?
Yes – if you wish, you can have someone present throughout your consultation and treatment.
Does it hurt?
Some soft tissue treatment may cause discomfort during treatment. I will explain to you what to expect, and I would like you to let me know if you are in pain. You may feel a little stiff or sore after treatment which is a normal, healthy response to the treatment.
Do I need to see my doctor first?
You do not need to see your doctor first if you are paying for your own treatment. However, some insurance companies require you to see your doctor first. Osteopathy is available on the NHS in some areas – and national guidelines say it should be available everywhere for low back pain. The British Medical Association has officially acknowledged Osteopathy as a treatment method for Lower Back Pain.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments you will need depends on the condition and person being treated. I will aim to keep appointments to a minimum, and I should be able to tell within a short period of time whether I can treat you or if you need to be referred to someone else.
