Postural Aches & Pains

Postural aches and pain make up a large number of patients seeking Osteopathic treatment. Time spent at a desk, driving and the stresses of our daily lives have an impact on our posture leading to pain and stiffness throughout the body. Pain from these stresses have been shown to be the main reason people take time away from work.

Back and neck pain is the body telling you that it is being over stressed by everday life. This can be the joints of the spine or the muscles telling you they are out of alignment or overused. Rupert will help to identify the underlying casue of the symptoms then using joint manipulation, gentle stretching and soft tissue massage work to resolve the issues. As well as treatment Rupert will discuss with you your set up and work and car as well as other stressors which may be adding to your postural aches and pain.

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. It works with the structure and function of the body and is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together. Talk to Rupert Cross to discuss if osteopathy at our Bristol clinics could help you.
