Here’s what Louise had to say about Cram Osteopaths


My name’s Louise. I live in the city centre of Glasgow, and I work for a bank as a financial account manager. I’ve had back and hip problems for a number of years, and working from home with the recent pandemic made it a lot worse, so it was really painful, and I’d been to see a lot of people over the past, with the exception of an Osteopath, so I thought I would try an Osteopath.

Treatment was very good, I got talked through, why all my symptoms were happening, what was potentially wrong with me and what the treatment would be, potentially short-term and long-term as well. I would say go along and have a consultation. As I say, I’ve had this pain for a number of years, and the last two months, since I’ve been here, my pain’s been extensively less, almost gone.

Cram Osteopaths – Hints & Tips for Back Pain Relief

Hello, it’s Michael Brown from Cram Osteopaths in Glasgow. And today I wanted to share with you something a patient brought with them into the treatment room the other day. And they said, Michael, that thing you told me to do while I was at the sinks, amazing it’s really, really helped me. So I want to share it with you today. So, a lot of people find when they are standing over a sink shaving, washing dishes, brushing their teeth, that, Keep up Joanna.

That could be a real problem for them. Okay. So one of the tips that we use in the practise is enter the stool. Okay. So when you’re over the sink and people find this when you’ve got sore back, you’re in this position, it’s that gentle leaning forward can really, really bother people, okay? So what we do is while you’re standing at the sink, gents, when you’re shaving. Bring one foot up here, okay? And so instead of being in this position and leaning over and just gently moving forward, like this is really, really bothering people since it sort of do this sort of semi limbo thing and they bring their knees down and this, trying to do this which is uncomfortable as well.

You find your stool, you bring one foot up, and that brings your pelvis into a different position that can really help with the pain and discomfort. And then you lean forward, okay? So again, brushing your teeth as you lean down and you’re looking in the mirror and that leaning forward, foot up. Doing dishes at the sink, you bring one foot up and that helps with a lot of the pain and discomfort.

So I’m sure you’ve got one of these at home, IKEA if you don’t, you’ll maybe find them somewhere else. But this is something that can really help you when you’re going through that period of acute back pain. However, the best thing to do is to pick up the phone or go online to  and make an appointment to see us.
