Osteopathic Treatment of Osteoarthritis, Neck, Back & Spinal Pain, Newcastle & Whitley Bay
According to recent figures, a staggering 9.96 million working days were lost in the UK in 2014, due to chronic back and neck pain, costing more than one billion pounds. The issue of chronic pain affects people of all ages and is thought to be on the increase due to lifestyle changes which include long periods sitting at a computer for work or entertainment. Over the counter medications are seldom effective and doctors are frequently at a loss to tackle the problem in any significant way.
Advice to help combat this type of pain is widely available on the internet and in books, suggesting regular breaks, movement, stretching, a proper seating position and exercises. Few people realise that even when at rest their back is always hard at work, and these actions can ease tension build up in muscles and lessen disc pressure.
Our digital promotional partners Whitley Bay Osteopathic Centre, use manual techniques to successfully relieve and treat a variety of conditions. Pinpointing and manipulating the affected tissues of the body, stimulates the body’s own built in healing process.
