Whitley Bay Osteopathic Centre – Assessment, Treatment & Pain Relief

In a new article on the partner pages of the Sports and Spinal Physio website, friends and web partners, Whitley Bay Osteopathic Centre promote the value of osteopathy in the treatment of musculo-skeletal pain.

The Whitley Bay Osteopathic Centre has a great reputation in the north east of England for the successful treatment of back pain and muscular injuries.

Like all reputable clinics, the Whitley Bay Osteopathic Centre start by taking a comprehensive medical history. They work closely with other medical practitioners in the diagnosis and treatment of pain.

Osteopathy works from the principle that injury to one part of the body can elicit pain and further damage in another part of the body. An example of this might be poor posture leading to tension in the neck and shoulder muscles that manifest itself as headache or migraine.

Osteopathic treatment varies from patient to patient. Generally speaking, osteopathy is a ‘hands on’ treatment ranging from the light touch of cranial osteopathy to the more dramatic joint manipulation of high velocity thrust (HVT) treatments. More common is the comfortable stretching of muscles and ligaments in and around the affected areas.

Treatment sessions typically last for 30 minutes during which time the osteopath will prescribe stretching and joint manipulation exercises to be carried out by the patient between sessions. The majority of Whitley Bay Osteopathic Centre patients see a marked improvement in their symptoms within three or four sessions.
