More than just back pain.....
We cover a wide range of conditions and health problems at Topline Osteopathy. Essentially, we look at you from head to toe and take into account your medical history and lifestyle to create a bespoke treatment plan. Here are some of the common issues that Topline Osteopathy clients have overcome while in our care. And if your unsure if we can help, please contact us to have a no-obligation telephone consultation.
Back and Neck Pain
Back Pain is miserable!! It's also very common. More and more people are sitting at a desk for work or working from home. Lack of mobility, reduced daily activity and prolonged sitting can cause a host of issues. Back pain will affect most of us either through a sudden episode or with gradual degeneration. Osteopathy can help to slow and limit these periods. Common back issues treated at Topline include: Sciatica, Disc Herniations, Arthritis of the spine, Muscle and Ligament sprains and more.....
Knee and Hip Pain
Knee and hip replacements should not be as common as they are. Many knee issues can be easily avoided often by paying attention to hip and foot stability and developing good form with lifting exercises and other sporting activities. However, Knee & Hip Arthritis, Patella tendonitis, ITB syndrome, Hip Bursitis and more can all be successfully treated using osteopathic techniques. Also, knee issues are often resolved by the use of well-fitted orthotics and some basic exercise rehabilitation. More info available here.
First of all, there is no such thing as a perfectly straight spine. Everyone has there own little kinks and twists, often referred to as scoliosis or kyphosis. Though, that doesn't mean that we all can't address our posture. When we let our posture go, we can often end up with stresses and strains on the small structures of the spine that if unchecked can lead to ligament sprains, muscle fatigue, faster disc degeneration and other imbalances. At Topline we look at your entire spine, even at your feet to see if your foundations are the cause of the problem. You don't even have to wait until you are in pain - contact us now to help avoid the future issues.
Do you know that the vast majority of sports injuries are avoidable? Most of the time, injuries such as achilles tendonitis, runners knee, golfers/tennis elbow, rotator cuff tears, meniscus damage, fractures, sprains and muscle strains occur due to inadequate rest, poor recovery, ill-fitting footwear/equipment, skill deficiency and poor posture and/or positioning. Some of these issues can be addressed through osteopathy. In addition, osteopathy serves as a great way to encourage healing and repair and improved biomechanics to limited stress and strain around the injured area. At Topline Osteopathy, you will be provided with a bespoke rehabilitation and treatment plan.
The feet are the foundations to your posture and movement. When your feet are compromised with position and stability it can lead to a host of issues such as plantar fasciitis, calf strains, angle sprains, knee pain, hip pain, pelvic imbalances and even up to headaches! At Topline Osteopathy your standing posture will be assessed, including movement screening to see how your feet and lower limbs work together. From this, if appropriate, you could be offered the opportunity to try some personalised, heat-moulded orthotics to help restore balance and function. Get the foundations right, the whole system works better.
We love our pets and want to do all we can to make sure they are thriving. Due to the shorter lifespans of horses and dogs compared to a human, the ageing process is accelerated. Both horses and dogs can suffer from very similar conditions to humans (well, golfers and tennis elbow is not exactly common!!), as there joints age, spines degenerate etc. However, even younger animals can pick up an injury often due to them having a funny five-minutes in the garden or in the field. Needless to say, all animals are under the care of a vet and animal-trained osteopaths can provide excellent, non-invasive healthcare also. Follow the equine link & canine link here for more info.
