When I mention that I’m an osteopath, many people say “oh, that’s to do with fixing backs, isn’t it?”. Its true, but that’s only a small part of the story: while I do have great success with alleviating back pain, my working day can involve treating any part of the body, literally from head to toe!
For example, here’s some other conditions that osteopaths regularly provide relief for:
Frozen shoulder/ shoulder and elbow pain/ tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) arising from associated musculoskeletal conditions of the back and neck, but not isolated occurrences
Headache arising from the neck (cervicogenic)
Joint pains including hip and knee pain from osteoarthritis as an adjunct to core OA treatments and exercise
General, acute & chronic backache, back pain (not arising from injury or accident)
Generalised aches and pains
Minor sports injuries and tensions
Inability to relax
Uncomplicated mechanical neck pain (as opposed to neck pain following injury i.e. whiplash)
So next time you experience any of the above, why not try the natural, drug-free approach to getting your body back into shape- see an osteopath.
