Back Pain, is yours like this?

Yback pain#1our back pain can really ruin your day, week, month or even year! Surprisingly it's not uncommon for first time client to tell me they've had their pain for years! Especially when most back pain can be managed or even eliminated with the correct treatment. Don't live on pain-killers and anti-inflammatory drugs when there are options to treating your back pain more efficiently and permanently.

If you wake up in the morning and have to think before you move, if you get out of bed as though your twenty years older than you actually are and wish you could sleep for another few hours just to get a bit more energy to start the day, then listen up, things can change. If you have to grunt your way through the day because of your pain and have to think first before moving quickly (in case that pain shoots through you like you've just been tazered!), then help is at hand. If you dread having to bend down to pick that bottle of milk from the fridge door in case your back locks up like you've been kicked by a mule, then I have good news for you. If you fear going out for a night out with friends and are worried that they might mistake your back pain for looking for sympathy because they don't understand how bad this actually feels (does anybody?), then there is something you can do. I'll HowsLifeexplain…

Most back pain is incorrectly diagnosed and therefore you end up with a completely ineffective treatment that at best takes the edge off the pain for a short time, or at worst does nothing (but you still keep doing it because..?) It may be that you have received incorrect treatment in the past and have got so fed up with some of the hogwash that you have been told that you now manage your back pain by yourself, living on pain-killers and anti-inflammatory drugs that are only meant to be given short-term and should never be taken as a cure (and indeed can be dangerous if done so)

I use a combination of muscle stretching and joint mobilising techniques and occasionally a little gentle electrotherapy with some massage to get you back in good health again. With osteopathy and the other techniques I employ to treat back pain, I can have you waking up in the morning and getting out of bed like you want to take on the day. You'll feel full of energy and be wanting to take on new challenges (instead of shying away from anything new) You'll look forward to engaging in new activities, sports or hobbies that would have only filled you with dread a few weeks before. You will be happy to help others, you'll be enthusiastic at work, at play, and you'll be going to bed at night with energy to spare and looking forward to what new adventures tomorrow may bring.Closeup portrait of a joyful young couple on holiday having fun against sky

We have a new ultrasound gel warmer

shocked young woman, isolated against purple studio backgroundIt may seem like a small thing, but ultrasound gel is inherently cold. When applied to an area of the body (especially the lower back) it can feel like a block of ice, which usually makes you jump (not a good thing if you've already got a bad back!) So to make you all feel much more comfortable when receiving ultrasound treatments I have made a small investment in a bottle warmer (usually used for heating a babies milk) this raises the temperature of the ultrasound gel to a point where it feels “tepid” to touch, much more accept able and comfortable when you're having your ultrasound treatments from now on.
