Our osteopath healthcare practitioners have many years’ experience helping back pain and sciatica sufferers following NICE Guidelines

Many people experience back pain at some point in their lives. This may be caused by poor posture or workstation setup, heavy lifting, a sports or other injury or a chronic condition such as sciatica. We can help explore the reasons for your back pain and determine the root cause.

Osteopaths use a variety of techniques including spinal manipulation and soft tissue work to reduce tension and improve spinal alignment. We may also give you remedial exercises to perform at home, and look at your posture, how you work, drive, sleep and more

We can also treat mechanical forms of Sciatica where the joints of the spine and muscles are stretching the Sciatic Nerve. A severe disc form of sciatica, might mean an onward referral. However, if we feel we can form a treatment plan, this consists of 3-6 treatment sessions over 3-4 weeks.

We also offer diagnostic appointments via online video consultations, offering a quick and easy way to obtain a professional diagnosis.

Our Approach to Scoliosis

Scoliosis often presents as varying amounts of sideways curvature and a twist or torsion of the spine. It can also stem from the pelvis or be due to uneven leg length.

Scoliosis can be assisted and managed with osteopathy, by improving the alignment of the pelvis and spine, and increase range of motion, flexibility and strength in the muscles which allow the pelvis and spine to function better.

We use a combination of strength and mobility exercises to alleviate tension and reduce pain. We monitor changes as we treat the spine and muscles over the sometimes weeks or months of treatment.

Our patients come to see us in their teens to help prevent their scoliosis from deteriorating or in later life when it maybe a source of pain or loss of flexibility.
