Helping you say no to pain.
Effective treatment begins with an effective diagnosis
Book your appointment with Back in the City and you can be reassured that your symptoms will be investigated thoroughly by a skilled professional to reach an accurate evaluation.
In the vast majority of cases we will start treatment [having obtained your consent] immediately. On occasions it may be necessary to seek further tests or investigations. These could include MRI scans, blood tests, X Rays etc. We work closely with a range of providers of these services.
How we assess you
As an example regarding posture, it may be that we need to check your leg lengths if you have headaches, as a difference in leg length can cause a spinal curvature [scoliosis] further causing neck muscle tension. This may bring on the headache. Thereby tackling the neck muscles alone will not stop the problem from recurring.
Our treatments and techniques
We are trained in a range of approaches and understand the need to be very gentle in many circumstances [e.g. patients with osteoporosis] or firmer when the need arises. We will always note your preference for the type of treatment you wish to receive.
Visiting an osteopath
The osteopath will explain the findings, the appropriate course of action and treatment for your specific requirements. The osteopath can also suggest exercise programmes to both improve and maintain flexibility, strength and core stability as well as advising on work space ergonomics and working practices. These measures are designed to help prevent a recurrence of your problem.
In the event that we feel osteopathic treatment is not your best option, we will, with your agreement, refer you to the most appropriate person.
We offer fast and effective relief from pain and debilitation and strive to offer our patients an appointment within 24 hours of their inquiry.
