My name is Dillon, and I am from Loans near Troon. My occupation is a plaster. Basically, I’ve been plastering nearly all my life, and I’ve been having lots of aches and pains. So I’ve actually ignored it for a good few years. So I was recommended to see an Osteopath. First experience after the first session I actually felt fantastic. Went back to work. Couple of days of stiffness, but after that, I see a lot of difference so far. I would definitely recommend you to a friend.
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.

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 www.cramosteopaths.co.uk and make an appointment to see us.

If plantar fasciitis, or heel pain, has been plaguing you over the last year and you’ve missed out on the things that you enjoy, long dog walks, hillwalking, playing with your children, or grandchildren, golf, then it’s important that you’re listening to this information. That there’s a way out of this, but it needs to start now. And the reason for that, if you want to enjoy all the outdoor activities when level four or tier four is lifted, then the process needs to begin soon.
It’s when the good weather comes back in April and May, if you’ve put in the hard work with the plantar fasciitis programme over that period of time, then you’ll be able to enjoy all these things again.

The long-term biological effects of what we do in the practise with Shockwave Therapy are long lasting and will last you for many years to come.
However, it’s not a quick fix. So if we start now, we get you through the programme, that when the good weather comes back, when we’re allowed to do all the things that we want to do again, which it will come, hopefully, not too far away, that you will be there, ready to enjoy them.

Hello, it’s Michael Brown from Cram Osteopaths in Glasgow and today I want to talk to you about plantar fasciitis.

Plantar fasciitis may be the cause of your heel pain, patients present with following symptoms. The majority of patients attend our Glasgow plantar fasciitis clinic with heel pain, they feel like something is stuck, or being stuck into the base of the heel when they put pressure on it when walking. Also, a number of patients present with pain around the arch of the foot, and then less commonly, around the toes. All of these areas can be categorised as plantar fasciitis symptoms.
Now, one of the reasons for your increase in symptoms at the moment, can be down to your footwear… or lack of it. Many more people are now working from home. They walk from one room to another on hard surfaces, with no footwear or inadequate footwear, possibly all that shuffling around in slippers could be leading to some of the symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
So, one of our top tips for plantar fasciitis, is adequate footwear, wearing supportive footwear or trainers , when you are outside walking and when you are inside walking always make sure you are wearing appropriate footwear.
Thank you for watching, and if you’d like some more information about our plantar fasciitis programme, please get in touch with the practice here
