‘Did you realise that 2 out of 5 adults will experience back pain

How can we help?
Once a patient has been referred to us we can start treating them straight away, immediately working on the problem. We then engage them in a programme of regular controlled exercises and offer help, advice and support from our clinic in Solihull.
Osteopaths can use a wide range of gentle manipulations depending on your age, fitness and diagnosis to reduce muscular tension in the neck and improve movement in the joints of the neck and upper back. We may gently massage the soft tissues or rhythmically “rock” the joints to release tension and sometimes we may gently manipulate the neck to move the joints and you may hear a “click” Patients can be concerned that this is painful, I can assure you it isn’t, sometimes after treatment patients can be a sore due to the stimulation of blood flow to an injured area but this is no more that the ‘next day ache’ one might experience after exercising after a lay off or gardening for the first time in Springtime.
Treatment is different for everybody, it may involve treating areas of the body that aren’t painful or even near the area that is hurting, this can be due to referred pain and this will all be explained in the treatment session.
We may offer advice on your posture at work or in the car and give advice on exercise and stretching to help keep your neck and upper back muscles and joints relaxed.
X-rays, scans and other tests are sometimes required to make a diagnosis and your osteopath may refer to your GP or a specialist for any additional investigations or treatment.

I have received treatment from Paul and his colleagues for over 4 years for a variety of treatments, and actually look forward to visiting the practice. His good humour, charm, professionalism, good humour, charm, professionalism, I always leave wiser and feeling better.
I completely trust Paul in his diagnosis and treatment, and always recommend others to him.
I have been a patient of Paul’s on and off for 6 years and have always found him to be supportive, caring, cheerful and, most of all, he takes the pain away! It is always a pleasure to visit Paul and I always come away feeling that I have been given his entire attention, he is thorough and his sunny disposition helps to put a spring back into my step. I highly recommend a visit to Paul – it works.
