If you are suffering with back pain, it is understandable that even everyday life can be made harder. Osteopathy is a natural solution which relieves muscle tension and provides pain relief. Our professional osteopathy clinic in Eastbourne is here to help restore muscle elasticity and ease your back pain.
There may be a number of reasons you are experiencing back pain. Some back pain can be caused by a minor injury or a medical condition. Medical conditions which cause back pain include a slipped disc, sciatica, ankylosing spondylitis and spondylolisthesis. Sometimes pain relief medicine does not provide much relief - this is when our osteopathy service may be a required solution.
Osteopathy is an established system of diagnosis and treatment which is used to medicate a wide range of medical conditions including arthritis, neck ache and back pain. Osteopathic treatment includes a gentle range of manual techniques including stretching, manipulation and soft tissue. It increases mobility to spinal and peripheral joints, relieves muscle tension and increases blood supply to tissues. This, then helps reduce the body's inflammatory responses therefore reducing the pain. We can also provide advice on additional techniques to prevent symptoms such as lifestyle changes, posture modification and recommended exercises.
Your first consultation will last around 30 minutes. One of the first things we will do is discuss your medical details and history in order to determine your symptoms and health. Receiving your medical background gives the practitioner more information and the knowledge of whether a GP referral is appropriate. Then we will examine all relevant joints and treatment will be included within your first session.
Treatment is not usually painful - it aims to reduce muscle spasms, inflammation and ultimately pain. The most commonly used techniques are:
Articulation - A series of gentle joint movements
Soft tissue - Applying light to firm pressure on muscle tissues
Manipulation - This is often accompanied by a clicking sound and will only be used if the patient is happy with this technique
