Lifting, bending, slouching and even sneezing can cause pain. Whether it is a sudden pain that seems to cripple you like sciatica, immobilise you like migraine, nag and sap your energy like a frozen shoulder or facial pain, or is one that is constant like arthritis, the physiotherapists at The Wyndham Centres are trained to find the root of the problem and treat the condition.
If the pain is due to bad posture or tension, we will help you with certain exercises to improve your posture by working on your core stability. If it is due to mouse twitching, key tapping or other repetitive minor movements we can stretch your muscles, correct your posture and show you exercises to help. If it is due to spinal problems we can mobilise, manipulate and massage your way back to pain relief.
Physiotherapists will treat any sports injury, tennis and golfers’ elbows, runners’ and skiers’ knees, rugby necks and footballers legs, and we can show you with the right warm up and stretching exercises how to prevent further injury.
Cranial osteopathy can be particularly useful in treating the pain of headache, migraine, sinusitis and facial pain. It is extremely gentle, and so can be the technique of choice for those patients whose symptoms may be too acute for conventional osteopathic manipulative treatment, for example in the case of a recent acute back sprain with severe muscle spasm. It can also be an effective method of unravelling the long standing, chronic pain of misalignment, perhaps harking back to an old unresolved trauma such as a whiplash accident.
Cranial osteopathy is renowned as the primary method to treat the pain and distress of infantile colic, and also has its place in the treatment of torticollis, glue ear and many other paediatric complaints.
