Osteopathic treatment for preventing pain & maintaining a long term healthy spine

Many patients use osteopathy as a preventative measure to avoid low back pain. If you’ve had low back pain before then you will know it is a big motivator to not have it again!

Time after time I hear the same story from patients. They come in for treatment when they are in pain, get fixed and don’t come back until the next painful and debilitating episode. 

And they say to me “I wish I had come back earlier!”. 

The reality of back pain is that it can really get you off track with your daily…

How Often Should I Feed My Baby?

It is important to remember that every baby is a different and these first few weeks are about learning about each other and what works for you and your baby. You will be inundated with advice from well-meaning family members, different techniques from health professionals, your friends and new mums. This can seem overwhelming at times and the advice will be conflicting! If you are struggling with any aspect of breastfeeding I would always advise visiting a breastfeeding support group to get…

Homeopathy: The Best Kept Secret?

People seek help from a homeopath for many different reasons. Often people come to see me to heal a physical complaint, but by the end of their treatment what they value most is they no longer experience panic attacks, or their depression has lifted and their motivation and enthusiasm for life has returned. Some people comment, "I feel more like myself again".

Other people come to see me because they have been suffering with depression or anxiety and are surprised and relieved when their IBS…

The Worry Every New Mum Has When Starting Breastfeeding

‘How do I know how much they are getting?’

Nearly all new parents (myself included) worry in the first few days of breastfeeding that their baby is getting enough milk. The mere fact that you cannot see how much they are taking at each feed is disconcerting.  Your role as a parent is to care for this tiny individual’s every need and keeping them fed is an essential part of that role and you can’t even tell how many mls they took at the last feed! However, be reassured that there are very clear…

Road Cycling Can Cause Changes to the Shape of Your Back

There was a study (1) done in 2016 comparing 30 road cyclists with 30 mountain bikers and 30 non-cyclists. The cyclists in both groups had been cycling for 6 years and were of similar age and experience. 

The road cyclists showed significantly greater thoracic kyphosis and trunk inclination than did the mountain bikers and non-cyclists in a standing posture. 

This is the normal standing posture of the spine

On a road bike, the cycling posture was characterised by greater lumbar flexion and…

The Food App We Cannot Eat Without (FREE APP)

When it comes to buying food or eating out, the sheer amount of choice out there is a metabolic minefield, not to mention trying to get past the ambiguity of labels these days. All Natural? What does that actually mean? While it MAY be fine for the Average Joe, 10% of the population these days has a food allergy, 20% have a food intolerance and the rest of us are on a mission to eat healthier by cutting out our dairy, gluten, and/or sugar. But what about Vegans, Vegetarians, and Paleos? We live…

Anxiety & Kids - When Back to School is the Trigger

Recent research shows 1 in 8 children experience anxiety or panic attacks. A common trigger is going back to school after a long break. It can evoke intense worry in children for different reasons. Most of us have experienced anticipatory anxiety about doing something new or different. Symptoms of anxiety include butterflies in our stomach, sweaty palms, a tight chest and a feeling that something could go terribly wrong. But when anxiety becomes more chronic, other symptoms can develop and this…

Don’t shrug off your shoulder pain

Shoulder pain can be difficult to shift. Due to the highly mobile nature of the shoulder and the fact that the shoulder has less integrity than many other peripheral joints (ie the muscles of the area are primarily responsible for its integrity), there is increased risk of injury to the structures of the shoulder. The good news is osteopathy can help with many of the symptoms of shoulder injury/dysfunction, and can also help manage the associated pain.
