..bad back, restricted ability
I had a spell in hospital with a very bad back. My chief concern was my restricted ability.
Some time later I went to my GP, he advised me to change to painkillers. I decided then to go to an osteopath. I felt better from my first visit. I am now finding doing things so much easier. I would like others to enjoy this improvement I now have.
…severe back spasm
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. The results came back saying it was just wear and tear, with that I was prescribed pain killers that never helped 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 now go regularly on a monthly visit and for long periods I am completely free of pain.
…hardly anymore headaches
The treatment was amazing, I can now move well without pain, hardly anymore headaches and can sleep well which was unbearable some nights and very restless.
All in all a very good experience and very worthwhile. I can't thank you enough.
…suffered with back pain for many years
I have suffered with back pain for many years, and each time turned to painkillers to help relieve it. However the last time I was in so much pain I could hardly walk and I was advised by a relative to visit an Osteopath rather than keep taking tablets. After the first couple of visits to Paul 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.
…arthritis in my neck
When I developed arthritis in my neck and started to experience quite bad headaches I decided to try osteopathy. I had an initial consultation with the osteopath, Paul Musk, and it was concluded that I could benefit from treatment.
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.
…I was a bit scared
My name is Jean. I had never been to an osteopath until March '07. I was a bit scared as I didn't know what to expect, but I was in a lot of pain with my back and tablets from my local GP hadn't helped.
After a couple of sessions I felt so much better. I now go about every couple of months. Paul the osteopath makes you feel so at ease and he is so easy to talk to. I would recommend this treatment to anyone with back pain as after my treatment I feel so much better, also my movements are easier and I sleep much better.
…lower back pain, crumbled disc
I have suffered lower back pain for many years due to a crumbled disc; this over time caused more probIems to top of back, neck and shoulder.
After a previous bad experience with another osteo I was reluctant to go. Then a friend recommended Paul, so I have in and took the plunge.
The initial visit was comfortable and reassuring. My back problem was fully explained in a diagram and a treatment plan was drawn up between myself and Paul.
Since receiving and finishing my designated treatment, I am pain free and movement easier. Therefore I am continuing with further intermittent treatment to prevent the reassurance of pain.
…I cannot recommend osteopathy highly enough.
I awoke one morning to find that my back had literally seized up overnight and I could hardly get out of bed. I knew that I needed professional help so I got the Yellow Pages out and found the Eltham Health Clinic. They 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.
…after each treatment I had a lot of relief
My first treatment with Paul was for lower back pain and difficulty getting out of bed with pain on straightening up and also pain getting out of a chair after sitting for say an hour. Paul started my treatment with lots of "oh's" and "ah's" from me when he found the exact spots of pain. After each treatment I had a lot of relief and I thank Paul for making my back much better enabling me to exercise, dance etc.
Thank you Paul.
…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, I needed an alternative solution
An operation was suggested to correct numbness in my hands allegedly caused by carpel tunnel syndrome. Concerned at the potential side effects, I looked for an alternative solution and contacted my osteopath, Paul Musk. He soon 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.
…Told by my doctor I would just have to live with back pain
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.
Paul took time to listen to me and examined me thoroughly and he actually believed I was in pain. He then informed me he could make me pain free. 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 Paul to anyone who has back pain, he has 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.
He proved a bit of a sceptic very 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 sceptical at first.
Ben 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. I am very grateful to Ben for all of his help, and he proved a bit of a sceptic very wrong!
…the pains have stopped and I have much more movement…
I first went to see the osteopath with back and neck problems which were causing me severe pain and restricting my movement, caused as a result of my work as a chef.
Since seeing Ben the pains have stopped and I have much more movement in my back, making work and everyday life much easier!
..I am pain free and with no medication used…
After weeks and weeks of back pain (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 his osteopath, Paul Musk at his clinic in Eltham.
On arrival at the clinic I was made very welcome and put at ease by the team.
My first appointment with Paul was very good with a thorough examination and case history check. I was very impressed. The program Paul proposed for the following weeks was very detailed.
Over the following 8 weeks my pain eased greatly and now after 8 weeks, I am pain free (great feeling) and with no medication used. When asked by family and friends about my back I reply anyone suffering from back pain, I highly recommend seeing an osteopath and get pain free.
