Here at the Active Healthcare Clinic in Sheffield, our Osteopaths treat the following conditions (among others):
Lower Back Pain
Lower back pain is one of the most common medical complaints in the UK. In fact a significant proportion of the population will be affected by it in their lifetime.
Osteopathy is recognised by the NHS and NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) as an effective treatment for lower back pain.
Middle to Upper Back Pain
Middle to Upper Back Pain is common in people of all ages, including children and adolescents, and it occurs when part of the spine becomes inflamed or irritated.
Treatment is different for every patient but may include techniques such as different types of soft tissue massage and joint articulation to release tension, stretch muscles, help relieve pain and mobilise your joints.
Neck and Shoulder Pain
Many people carry stress and tension in their neck and shoulders which can cause the muscles to tense up – resulting in pain, discomfort, stiffness, loss of movement, muscle spasms, headaches and sometimes arm, hand and finger pain / tingling.
At Active Healthcare Clinic in Sheffield, our Osteopaths will spend time trying to understand your problem and putting together a neck and shoulder pain treatment plan for you.
Sports injuries can occur at either amateur or professional level when increased demand is placed on a certain area of the body.
Here at the Active Healthcare Clinic in Sheffield, our Osteopaths regularly treat sports injuries that have occurred during football, rugby, cycling, tennis, running and more.
Visceral osteopathy is the treatment of internal organs (e.g. lungs, kidneys and liver) – where the mechanics and mobility of an organ are restricted causing pain or discomfort in the back or other parts of the body which are mechanically or neurologically related to that organ.
As practitioners in Visceral Osteopathy, we aim to enhance the mobility of internal organs – improving organ function, circulation and lymphatic drainage.
Applied Kinesiology identifies that particular organs have an effect on specific muscles within the body. Applied Kinesiology tests the strength of particular muscles which then gives the osteopath an indication of the health of the organ being tested.
As practitioners in Applied kinesiology, we can help you identify conditions including organ dysfunction, mechanical structural imbalances & food allergies.
