When it comes to specialist knowledge, we have over 75 Years’ experience in helping people with back pain, even with the most challenging pain dilemmas.
We are Scotland’s largest, independent, family run, Osteopathic clinic and are very proud of our long heritage in helping people with back pain. Normund Cram started our first practice in the early 1940’s. We are now the third generation – that’s me – Joanna & my husband Michael.
Back Pain Explained
The nerve-rich facet joints on the back of each spinal bone are a common source of back pain. If these pairs of interlocking facet joints that connect the spinal bones are not moving correctly they can cause painful symptoms.
The discs between spinal bones can be a source of back pain too. These rings of fibrous tissue act as spacers, connectors and shock absorbers for the spine. Trauma can cause the soft, pulpy material in the middle to bulge or herniate, putting pressure on delicate nerves nearby.
Consider Osteopathy before
- Bed Rest – research now shows prolonged bed rest can delay healing and recovery and make the problem worse.
- Exercise – this is like continuing to drive your car with misaligned tyres!
- Pain-killing medication/Anti-inflammatory drugs – whilst pills may offer temporary relief they will not correct functional problems of affected joints.
- Surgery – a very drastic choice with considerable risks that does not necessarily guarantee success.
Osteopathy is safe and effective and will help you achieve not just short term relief but long term well-being.
