Work frequently and necessarily involves a degree of repetition so repetitive strain injuries are common. Constantly used muscle groups can become tense and exert traction on their tendinous origins creating inflammation, pain and/or swelling at specific sites in the body e.g. tennis elbow. Repeated use of certain joints may also irritate areas e.g. excessive kneeling may cause bursitis.
One of the most common problems patients bring to us is lower back pain following lifting at work and home. In May 2009, NICE (National Institute for Health & Clinical Excellence) published guidance on the treatment of non-specific low back pain. Recommendations in Low back pain: Early management of persistent non-specific low back pain include manual therapy, as practised by osteopaths.
“Having been informed that I would require an operation on my shoulder, which would result in me being unable to work for 6 to 8 weeks. I was advised by a friend to visit Albert Road Osteopaths. I was treated in a friendly and professional manner by Peter. During the seven sessions I made significant progress each week and I am very pleased to say I have now regained most of the movement without the pain and have not had to lose any time off work. I have never been to an osteopath before this, but now I would strongly recommend the practice. It certainty worked for me.”
