How to find us
 
 

We offer a wide range of osteopathic treatments from our Chatham clinic

RSI - An injury brought on from working in an awkward or static posture for too long or repeated over a long period
Neuralgia - The pain can often be severe, burning, stabbing or shooting in nature. Other symptoms can also occur such as tingling, pins and needles, numbness, muscle symptoms such as weakness and wasting

Back Problems - The result of an injury either from a load that the back simply is not strong enough to cope with, or a slight movement with very little weight.

Sciatica - Leg pain caused by the sciatic nerve.

Leg Pain - Back, hip, knee and ankle joints could all be the cause of the leg pain as could an injury such as a groin strain.

Headaches - Release tensions in the spine and muscles which can impinge (compress) nerves and blood vessels at the base of the skull that are often the cause of tension headache.

Shoulder & Arm Pain - Restore the correct muscle tension and balance in this area as well as ensuring the neck, upper back and lower back are working well as this is very important for the shoulder girdle to function properly and recover from injury.

Tennis Elbow - Or lateral epicondylitis is inflammation and small tears of the muscles or tendons of the forearm that allow us to straighten our wrist.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - Is due to pressure on a nerve, called the median nerve that passes through the wrist into the hand.

Sports Injuries - It is not surprising, possibly through fatigue or over exertion, that exercise in sport sometimes causes sports injuries.

Tennis Injuries - Tennis elbow is inflammation of the forearm muscles and tendons at their point of attachment at the elbow.

Shin Splints - Or medial tibial stress syndrome as it is sometimes called is lower leg pain, specifically the inner front section between the knee and foot. the pain is brought on by exercise.

Golf Injuries - Significant stress is placed on the same muscles, tendons, and joints by repeating the same golf swing motion over and over again.

Pregnancy - During a normal 40 week pregnancy many parts of the body will have to change and adapt to the new physiological state of pregnancy and then return to their previous state afterwards.

Neck Pain - Release tensions in the spine and muscles which can impinge (compress) nerves and blood vessels in the neck and base of the skull that are often the cause of neck pain.

Babies - The uterus (womb) strongly pushes and squeezes the baby as it has to turn and twist through the baby-osteopathy bony pelvis. The baby's head is able to change shape due to it's softness in order to get through the birth canal.

Digestive Problems - One reason why one part of the body influences another, and if one area is not functioning well it can lead to pain and other symptoms in another area.

Hip Pain - The hip is a ball and socket joint and this means the ball potentially can come out of the socket, i.e. to dislocate. Newborns are commonly tested for congenital dislocation of the hip.

Foot Pain - A large percentage of the population have painfull feet and many of these can be corrected by proper assessment, treatment and foot care.

Achilles Tendonitis - Can happen when the calf muscle which is attached to the tendon is overused either by an increase of a sport such as running tennis or dancing or a change of surface this activity is carried out on or a change in the footwear that is worn.

Plantar Fasciitis - A thick, fibrous band of connective tissue. Its starts on the inner and under surface of the heel. It runs along the sole of the foot like a fan, being attached at its other end to the base of each of the toes.

Degenerative Disc Disease - The discs that separate the spinal vertebrae age just as much as the vertebrae themselves.
