Common back pain conditions we treat at our Camberwell clinic.
Clients who visit our Camberwell osteopathy clinic differ considerably in age, lifestyle and fitness level. Many visit the clinic seeking treatment for back pain in its various forms. Lower back pain, also known as Lumbago is usually a sign of strained muscles or ligaments and responds well to osteopathy. Our clients spend a great deal of time sitting at their desks or in their cars and poor posture over a long period of time will lead to back pain. We provide relief to patients suffering with sciatica nerve pain or tightness in the piriformis muscle, which may affect the adjacent sciatic nerve. Osteopathy is also helpful to patients who experience pain or discomfort associated with non-surgical scoliosis, also known as curvature of the spine. Kyphosis is another condition treated at our clinic. This condition can be brought on by osteoporosis or degenerative conditions such as spinal arthritis or disc damage and vertebral fracture. For many clients with chronic conditions, osteopathy forms part of their spinal health maintenance in conjunction with complementary lifestyle factors.
Our approach to treating and relieving your back pain?
As with all conditions, we take very personalised approach to treatment. Our first task is to conduct a physical assessment to determine exactly what is causing your back pain. Osteopathy is a gentle, hands on treatment for back pain. Osteopathy uses a variety of techniques to alleviate muscle and tendon tension. We will match the pressure of massage and muscle manipulation to your pain tolerance. Our aim is to get you and your back, on the road to recovery, enjoying the activities you love doing without discomfort. Together we’ll look at your lifestyle factors and identify the potential activities or triggers for your back pain and work out a comprehensive recovery plan, including appropriate exercises you can do at home in between osteopathy appointments.
