Back pain and stiffness is often seen as a symptom of old age or the early signs of arthritis and is frequently accepted as a fact of life. Apart from ‘popping the occasional pill’ when things get really bad, we often ignore joint pain. We can choose to be more proactive in looking after our body so that daily activity and exercise can be a pleasure rather than a challenge.
Osteopaths specialise in managing joint pain, in particular back-ache and neck pain that can be the cause of headaches and migraine. Osteopaths are fully registered and regulated health care providers, who use a mix of techniques including massage, manipulation, joint mobilisation and acupuncture alongside exercise and lifestyle advice. Osteopaths are recognised by insurance companies as being able to offer effective treatment for a range of conditions and there is now a specialist osteopathic unit based at the Queens Medical Centre Spinal Care Unit.
A new Osteopathic clinic has recently opened in Southwell. Located in Portland Arcade off King Street, James Crossley the Principal Osteopath is available to talk to regarding any musculoskeletal condition. If you would like an assessment or treatment please call 01636 919469 to make an appointment.
