I had severe back spasm for three years affecting my right leg all the way down affecting my foot. My own GP sent me for an x-ray, and the results came back saying it was just wear and tear - with that I was prescribed pain killers that never seemed to actually help with the pain. I decided to see an osteopath and just on my first visit with the treatment and also some helpful information I started to get some relief from the pain. I have a monthly visit to the osteopath to keep me going, and for long periods I am completely free of pain.
I have suffered with back pain for many years, and each time turned to painkillers to help relieve it. After the first couple of visits, I felt so much better and was amazed when I heard all the things that were wrong with my back. Now at the end of my treatment I feel wonderful and if I ever have a problem in the future, I would not think twice about going back for more treatment. I have since recommended the clinic to anyone I know who is suffering with a back problem.
When I developed arthritis in my neck and started to experience quite bad headaches I decided to try osteopathy. The results have been good, it is no longer painful to turn my head and the headaches have stopped. As arthritis does not go I still have periodic treatments to keep the condition under control, but my life is so much better.
I have suffered lower back pain for many years due to a crumbled disc; this over time caused more problems to the top of my back, neck and shoulders. After a previous bad experience with another osteopath I was reluctant to go. Then a friend recommended the team at Eltham Osteopathy, so I came in and took the plunge. Since receiving and finishing my designated treatment, I am pain free and movement easier. I am also continuing with further intermittent treatment to prevent the reappearance of pain.
Seized up back
I awoke one morning to find that my back had literally seized up overnight and I could hardly get out of bed. The team at Eltham Osteopathy Clinic agreed to see me straight away and I arrived in absolute agony, not able to straighten my back at all. The problem was quickly diagnosed and after some gentle manipulation I left the clinic in a lot less discomfort. A programme of treatment was outlined for me and several months later I am back leading a fit and active life. I cannot recommend Osteopathy highly enough.
…muscle damage, developed a limp
Before visiting the Eltham Osteopathy Clinic I was suffering from muscle damage in my left groin and had developed a limp. Before this I had been a very active person and felt this to be my last resort. Not so, it really should have been my first as I feel I can now carry on life as before.
…after first consultation, 80% of the pain was gone
Having sprained my lower back whilst playing tennis, I was in agony for 3 months. The pain was so bad that I had an x-ray to check for structural damage but none was revealed.
On the recommendation of a friend, I visited Paul Musk, though I was very sceptical.
After the first consultation with Paul, 80% of the pain was gone and 100% of the movement was restored He was brilliant!
…I am now virtually pain free the whole time…
I have a congenital condition called spina bifida occulta which basically means the base of my spine is not properly formed and when the facet joints 'shift' which they do from time to time, can cause agonising pain. After a really bad flare up when my G.P. could offer no further assistance other than pain killers which are of limited use, in desperation I consulted Paul, the osteopath. Amazingly his manipulation of my spine and lower back have helped me enormously and I am now virtually pain free the whole time and now on a maintenance programme to monitor for continued progress. I would recommend osteopathy whole heartedly and only wish I have begun it years ago.
…my back problems have been resolved…
I had suffered for many years with my lower back aching and going into spasm. I could not stand for more than five minutes without my back tightening up causing all kinds of problems. I also had a problem lying flat on my back as this would cause the back to tighten up as well.
After attending the Eltham Osteopathy Clinic, following an accident to my ribs, I told Paul of my back problems and after a year of ongoing treatment, my back problems have been resolved. I can stand for very long periods without the back tightening up. I have even carried out gardening and this too has been a joy, with no back pain at all. I can also lay flat on my back now with no problem.
I have been so pleased with the treatment that I have received and will continue with regular visits to make sure my back remains in good shape.
An operation was suggested to correct numbness in my hands allegedly caused by carpel tunnel syndrome. On my first visit to the clinic, we established that my problem was in fact tennis elbow and following a course of treatment there has been a substantial improvement. I would recommend osteopathy not only for the solution to specific ailments, but also the holistic approach which promotes a general feeling of well being.
Operations, steroids, pain killers no more
After several years of back pain, 2 back operations, numerous steroid injections and lots of different pain killers, I was told by my doctor that I would just have to learn to live with my lower back pain.
Everyday tasks would be so painful I couldn’t sleep, I needed help getting dressed and it could take me over 20 minutes to get up each morning, some days I couldn’t even get into my car but worst of all I couldn’t lift my 4 year old son. I was not ready to give up my life with a young family so as a last resort searched for ‘back pain’ on the internet. I called Eltham Osteopathy Clinic and the receptionist squeezed me in the same day. However, when I arrived and saw the stairs I almost turned and went away! But I struggled on and was met by a friendly face and was made to feel at ease.
They really took time to listen to me and examined me thoroughly and actually believed I was in pain. After my first 3 sessions I didn’t feel there was any improvement, I certainly wasn’t pain free, but I kept with the programme and gradually started to notice subtle changes like I could walk to the shops and back without needing to sit down, but the greatest day of all was when my son came running at me and instead of cringing with pain I just bent down and scooped him up. I can recommend this clinic to anyone who has back pain, they have given me back my life and I am so grateful I found such a caring clinic.
…after receiving treatment the pain is less… it has been a success and I would recommend it!
It all started about a year ago, I had a lot of pain in my lower back every time I woke up.
It got so bad I went to the doctor and they sent me for x-rays and put me on a course of pain killers. This didn’t help and the doctor said that there isn’t anything else that he could do.
That’s when I was recommended to go to the osteopath by a family member.
The team were very understanding and after my examination it turned out that most of my spine was painful. After receiving the treatment the pain is less and I am able to sleep for longer periods it has been a success and I would recommend it.
Proved a skeptic wrong
Following recurring neck problems I began to suffer constant lower backache after a car crash and was constantly taking pain killers. A colleague recommended I visit an osteopath to relieve the pain. I must admit to being a little skeptical at first. My osteopath was very thorough and explained the use of each method of treatment and the potential outcome. He also gave me some light exercises to do at home and helped me understand and work towards correcting postural habits which exacerbate my neck and back pain. The pain and stiffness in the joints and muscles is virtually non-existent following the treatment administered and I have been able to take control of the problem rather than let it control me.
Pain & medication free
After weeks & weeks of back pain due to a trapped nerve, unable to walk or sleep without pain and numerous visits to my GP (being prescribed painkillers, which were totally ineffective), my GP recommended that I see an osteopath. Over the following 8 weeks my pain eased greatly and now after my treatment plan, I am pain-free & medication-free and feeling great!
