Back pain can be caused by a number of triggers - whether it is an injury or medical condition - we can provide natural pain relief. Our osteopathy clinic in Eastbourne can help relief all forms of back pain and restore muscle elasticity.
There are many reasons you may be experiencing back pain. Back pain is usually caused by minor injury or a medical condition. Such medical conditions include sciatica, a slipped disc, ankylosing spondylitis and spondylolisthesis. Many people find that pain relief such as ibuprofen does not provide significant relief. Our osteopathy service provides significant relief through natural techniques.
Osteopathy is an effective treatment which is used to medicate a wide variety of medical conditions including back ache, neck pain and arthritis. If you have any doubt on whether osteopathy is the right choice for you, please just get in touch. At your appointment we will provide you with additional techniques on how to prevent symptoms from recurring such as posture modification, lifestyle changes and exercise recommendations. Osteopathy includes a range of gentle, manual techniques including soft tissue, manipulation and stretching. It increases mobility to spinal and peripheral joints, eases muscle tension and increases blood supply to tissues. This, then helps reduce the body's inflammatory responses and reduces the pain in the targeted area.
Your initial consultation lasts around 30 minutes. Firstly, we will discuss your medical history and details in order to get a fuller picture of your symptoms and general health. This also gives the practitioner an idea if a GP referral is necessary. Then, we will examine relevant joints and treat where necessary all within the first session.
Treatment should not be painful. It aims to reduce inflammation, muscle spasms and provide pain relief. Our most commonly used techniques include:
Articulation - A range of gentle joint movements
Soft tissue - Applying light to firm pressure on relevant muscle tissues
Manipulation - This is often accompanied by a clicking sound and will only be used if the patient is comfortable
