Back pain and beyond-how northlondonosteopaths.co.uk can help you

Many people are troubled by the increase in prescription and over the counter medication to deal with chronic pain and other conditions. The different varieties of alternative medicine may be able to help in some cases, often working with the body’s defence mechanism and using alternative remedies.

Osteopathy is especially relevant when it comes to dealing with pain from the muscular skeletal system. Alan Nevies and associates at northlondonosteopaths.co.uk help many people suffering from back pain, and are by no means limited to the back of the body. Arms, legs, shoulders, necks, headaches to mention but a few of the areas and complaints we may be able to resolve.

We try as far as possible to discourage the use of painkilling drugs as these have side effects, and focus rather on techniques of manipulation, articulation, soft tissue massage, postural advice and suggestions for muscle and core strengthening exercises.

It is important to remember that many medications are only meant to be taken as a short term solution. In addition they may only be addressing the symptom and not the cause, so osteopathy is invaluable in providing the solution to the source of the problem. Clearly a win-win situation and a vital contribution to alternative medicine’s ability to make people better and lead pain free lives.
