We are here to help

Worthing Back Pain Treatment

 We treat a wide range of conditions with prompt, reliable and professional service.

Osteopathy is an established recognised system of diagnosis and treatment, which lays its main emphasis on the structural and functional integrity of the body. It is distinguished by the fact that it recognises that much of the pain and disability, which we suffer, stems from abnormalities in the function of the body's structure as well as damage caused to it by disease.

Both structural and cranial osteopathy can be used to treat a variety of conditions.

What to expect in an Osteopathic Consultation

Case history
All osteopathic treatment should start by taking a case history. This is to find out what is wrong.
It generally lasts 10-15mins and will involve questions not only about where the pain is but also how it started and what it feels like and the things that make it better and worse. 
Observation and tests
 You may be asked to undress down to your underwear. Depending on where your pain is, you may only need to take off the top or bottom part of your clothes. If you prefer not to remove any clothing then please tell us, and you may leave them on, but they need to be thin, such as tracksuit bottoms or shorts and t-shirt or vest top.

The reason osteopaths prefer to ask people to undress down to their underwear is so we can observe the area of pain more closely. We also look for things like swelling and bruising and assess people's posture. Less clothing also makes it easier to treat you. I will do some tests to try and determine what is wrong and then explain to you what I have found and what I want to do.

Treatment
 The treatment will generally involve some pulling and pushing (gentle or hard depending on the person) of the affected area to get the joints moving properly. There is normally some soft tissue work involved to loosen up the muscles and then if necessary and only with your consent we may carry out a manipulation (click) or two. We also quite often do some very gentle work (cranio-sacral) where you will hardly feel anything happening. The cranial osteopathy can be used on anyone, but is always used when treating babies. We generally explain what we're doing at the time.

Occasionally an acupuncture needle is put into a muscle or joint but only with your permission.

The treatment consists of a lot more but this is a general overview. At the end of the treatment I will give you some advice on exercises you can do to help yourself and advice on whether to use hot or cold packs.
