    • Osteopaths treat conditions throughout the body ranging from neck, back & spinal problems but also peripheral joint conditions.

  • GENERAL ADVICE

    Open or Close

    Osteopath Advice

    • Occasionally, you may feel some increased tenderness after treatment.

    • This is not unusual & is a result of the changes, induced by treatment.

    • Some people liken the feeling, to the effects of unaccustomed exercise.

    If you are worried or would like any advice please do not hesitate to contact David.

    In the mean time, see the following for some useful general tips.

    • It's quite common & normal following osteopathic treatment, for a patient to feel sore / achy for a few days following treatment (similar to what you might experience after exercise).

    • Some patients have an aggravation of symptoms but these usually settle down quickly.


    Cold Packs

    These are very helpful reducing pain & assisting the inflammatory (healing) process. They are most effective when used as follows:

    • In the first 24 hours after any injury, apply hourly for 5 minutes at a time.

    • Subsequently apply for 15 minutes every 3 - 4 hours

    • Never place the ice pack, directly on the skin.

    • Cover the area to be treated with a thin cloth. Apply the cold pack (frozen peas, gel pack).

    Sitting

    • If you have low back pain, avoid sitting for more than 20 minutes where possible.

    • If sitting is unavoidable, use an upright chair.

    • Use a cushion to raise your hips, a little above your knees.

    • Stand up & move around every twenty minutes.

    • Driving involves sitting & long journeys, should be broken up.

     

    Lying down comfortably

    • On your back with a pillow under your knees; or,

    • On your side, knees bent with a pillow between them.

    • Placing a duvet under your sheet, may make a hard bed more comfortable.

    Neck Comfort

    • A collar or rolled towel around your neck, may help relieve neck pain.

    Easing Repetitive Motion

    • Avoid repetitive movements, (reaching stretching & twisting, even for small items).

    • Too many uninterrupted repetitions of an activity or motion, unnatural or awkward motions such as twisting the arm, feet or wrist, overexertion. incorrect posture, or muscle fatigue.
