Easing Symptoms of Back Pain
Why not ease the symptoms of back pain through osteopathy treatment and is available at my clinic at Cenacle Treatment Centre.
If you suffer from back pain you are not alone. It is claimed that 4 out of 5 people get back pain at some stage of their lives. Osteopaths are in demand because they are well known as back specialists and many people say that orthodox medicine has little to offer back pain sufferers apart from medication and, in severe cases, surgery.
So, if you are seeking help for your back problem, let me tell you what I can offer should you decide to consult me.
I have treated thousands of people with back pain over the course of twenty-plus years. I have seen lots of backs and have gained valuable experience in treating back problems. I hope that you will benefit from that experience.
I enjoy listening to people and am keen that patients tell me as much as they can about their back problem so that I can understand their condition.
I will examine your back thoroughly to try to locate the root of the problem and to assess the state of the muscles and spinal joints. I will also assess your posture and general mobility. I will see if there are any signs of arthritis or inflammation.
I will ask about your medical history and be alert for any signs of an underlying medical condition which may be causing or aggravating the back pain.
How many treatments are needed?
This depends how set in it is. Mrs H. had suffered with constant headaches for a year. She improved after 4 treatments but continued to have monthly treatments for a while until she was sure they were gone. Others take longer like Mr A. Who had been having migraine attacks 2 or 3 times a month for seven years. He was a lot better after having 6 treatments over a period of four months but came back every now and then if symptoms flared up.
For some people who have had migraine for much of their life since childhood or teenage years, the more realistic goal is to help alleviate the symptoms and lessen the attacks rather than expect a total cure in the short term. I have several patients of this type, some whom have suffered from migraine for forty-plus years, and who have monthly maintenance treatments.
