What do Osteopathy treats?

Osteopaths are widely known for treating the common ‘bad back’, but the scope is far wider than that: they spend most of their time treating very common and disabling problems which affect the back and joints and muscles of the rest of the body.

Osteopaths in Cheshire are frequently consulted about disorders such as sciatica, spondylosis, neck pain, arthritic pain and rheumatism. Cheshire osteopaths also give advice about ‘frozen shoulder’, tennis elbow, foot pain, migraine, knee injuries, R.S.I., sports and disc injuries.

Most people are aware that four out of five Britons will be crippled by backache at some time in their lives. The large majority of back pains result from mechanical disturbances of the spine such as postural strain, joint derangements and spinal disc injuries. These can often be relieved by carefully designed osteopathic treatment.

More and more people nowadays are choosing to consult an Osteopath for their back pain instead of just ‘putting up with it’ and hoping it will go away. Britain’s Osteopaths treat over 6 Million patients a year!

It is not necessary to see you doctor before consulting an Osteopath.

Martin Davies & Associates, the area’s longest established practice of Registered Osteopaths, guarantees very competitive consultation fees. The initial consultation takes about 45 minutes, for which there is no extra charge and subsequent visits last at least half an hour. Please see our Contact page for current prices.

“Some years ago I injured my lower back and was in agony. My doctor told me to go to bed for three weeks but it was sheer hell to lie there in pain while my 14 year old son tried to run my mail-order business to keep money coming in. Even going to the toilet was a major ordeal. The pain killing tablets had no effect other than to give me stomache ache and eventually, in desperation, I drove myself to the Osteopathic Surgery.

Martin Davies was able to diagnose what had happened in my back and began treatment immediately. The weekly manipulation and massage combined with exercises led to complete pain relief after just a few weeks. In fact within just three days the pain was already bearable. Six years later, I still go to the surgery every few months for a routine check up and manipulation and my back has never been better.

Not only that but, thanks to Martin Davies’ advice on health, my weight is coming down and my blood pressure is just 120/80 – not bad for a 54 year old?”
