Is Osteopathy Good For Lower Back Pain

Low back pain is typically a complex or multifactorial problem that has both mechanical and neurological elements and the evidence would suggest that we get the best treatment results when we address both. A hands on Osteopathic approach to Low Back Pain can do just that, with massage, mobilisation and manipulation of tight or tender tissues, we can work to quieten over-sensitive nerves and improve movement, in all the areas that contribute to your back pain.

This type of treatment can have a profound effect on the way your low back moves, feels and functions, but it can also provide a valuable window of opportunity for us to then focus on rehabilitation and recurrence prevention.

Manual Osteopathic techniques are a simple and effective way to remove restrictions and allow better movement and a return to full function.

These techniques are gentle and generally safe & effective in improving joint mobility but remember that no treatment is safe for everyone all of the time so it’s always best you see a qualified health professional.
