Can I help you?If you have symptoms that need relief (back pain, hip pain, sciatic pain, etc.) pick up the phone: 028 9268 2320
I established my Osteopathy practice in 1984 and 30 years later I’m still here and still loving it, with a strong reputation, recognition from leading private health insurance providers and an extensive list of clients and past clients. I specialise in the treatment of back pain, Sciatica, neck pain and sports injuries.
People often think of osteopathy as expertise solely for helping with back pain, however, your Osteopathy appointment can help relieve a wide range of conditions including:
– Lower Back Pain
– Joint pains including: Hip, Knee Ankle or Shoulder pain
– Sports injuries
– Neck pain
– Tennis elbow
– Carpal tunnel syndrome
– Repetitive strain injuries / “computer shoulder”
– Back pain during pregnancy
– Headaches (certain types)
– Arthritic pain
– General, acute & chronic backache
– Generalised aches and pains
– Rheumatic pain
As an Osteopath, the methods I use are mainly very gentle manual manipulation, usually painless, and my ethic is to resolve patients’ conditions as quickly as possible. If a situation arises where I do not feel that my approach is appropriate, I will immediately refer that patient to a fellow expert practitioner who may be better suited to work with that person’s particular condition. However, in the majority of cases I will be able to relieve pain from a variety of conditions quickly and effectively.
BEFORE TREATMENT: To begin I will ask a number of questions about your symptoms and medical history, examine your posture and how you move your body, and I may also assess what happens when I move it for you to see what hurts, where and when. I may find areas of sensitivity or tightness, this helps me to identify, for example, what may leading to your back pain, elbow pain, knee pain, hip pain or shoulder pain. This process gives me the information I need to make a diagnosis of your condition or confirm the findings of your own doctor.
OSTEOPATHY TREATMENT: Treatment is a manual therapy tailored to your situation – dependant on your diagnosis, age, fitness, etc. Treating your specific complaint as well as addressing any underlying causes will include different types of soft tissue massage & joint articulation, to release tension, stretch muscles, mobilise stiff joints and help relieve pain.
