Osteopathic Treatment for Headaches

Osteopathic Treatment for Headaches

osteopathy for headaches

Headaches can occur for a variety of reasons, one being cervicogenic (originating from the cervical spine or neck). These are headaches arising from abnormalities in the joints, muscles, fascia and neural structures.

Typically cervicogenic headaches are described as a constant, steady dull ache, often one sided but can be both sides. It can feel like a tight band around your head. Many people feel the tension at the base of their neck, it can also refer pain to the temples and forehead. Usually the onset is gradual and the headache can be present for days, weeks, even months. There is sometimes acute trauma, for example a road traffic accident or they can be related to repetitive trauma associated with some sports or work related postures. The posture adopted by many desk based workers of rounded shoulders and an extended neck puts tension through these muscles making them a prime candidate for cervicogenic headaches.

Pain is usually associated with neck stiffness and aggravated by neck movements and/or sudden jolting. Associated symptoms such as light headedness, dizziness and nausea are common. Your Osteopath will take a detailed case history and perform a physical examination to determine the cause of your headache, if appropriate they will proceed to treat you manually and provide advice and exercises.

Jaw pain is often a symptom of temporomandibular disorder which is commonly multifactoral in origin and typically involves dysfunction of the muscles and joints. Displacement of the joint can occur causing wear and tear of the internal structures. Grinding and clenching teeth (bruxism), trauma and osteoarthritis can all cause the movement of the joint to be disturbed.

After careful history taking and examination if appropriate your Osteopath will work to help to improve the function of the joints involved and relieve tension around the jaw. They will also be able to offer advice and in some cases exercises.

Sinus pain or sinusitis is inflammation of the lining of the sinuses, caused by viral or bacterial infections. The sinuses are small cavities behind the forehead and cheekbones, which drain mucus into the nose through small channels. These channels can become blocked when the sinuses are infected and inflamed.

The most common cause of sinusitis is the common cold, a viral or bacterial infection which spreads from the upper airways to the sinuses. Diagnosis is usually made based on symptoms of a blocked or runny nose, facial pain and tenderness, a high temperature of 38ºC or more and headaches. All age groups can be affected and it often clears by itself within a week or two. Alternatively, bacterial infections can develop lasting for longer periods and may require antibiotics. If the episodes are severe or reoccurring you will be referred to a GP to determine any underlying factors.

Osteopathic treatment aims to relieve the symptoms and speed up recovery by massaging the local glandsand muscles, which may help to drain the sinuses. This in turn may ease the feeling of compression in the head and subsequent pain.

As sinus pain can be caused by a multitude of factors it is important that you consult a medial professional. Headaches, jaw and sinus pain can sometimes be symptom of a serious underlying medical condition.

She’s a really lovely, friendly lady and I’ve since recommended her to several other friends who have all had similarly positive experiences.

What Makes Joints Click?

What makes joints click? New research explains the noise when joints click.

spineThe cause of joint cracking has been previously attributed to gas bubble presence and collapse within the joints (http://www.ncor.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/Audible_sounds_sm.pdf).   In a new study at the University of Alberta real-time magnetic resonance imaging demonstrates that the mechanism of joint cracking is related to cavity formation rather than bubble collapse.

The University of Alberta’s Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine have published further details on the experiment, including photographs showing the MRI set-up.

Further information about the study can be found at  Kawchuk GN, Fryer J, Jaremko JL, et al.  Real-time visualisation of joint cavitation.  PLoS One. 2015;10(4):e0119470.  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25875374 .

 

healthy-joint

Osteopaths may use a very specific form of joint manipulation called an HVT (high velocity thrust) where you may hear a click or a pop. They are trained for 4 or 5 years in the art of using this technique and create the movement by building up a series of levers to make the impact at the joint as minimal as possible. An osteopath should always ask for your consent when using this technique and explain the benefits and risks involved. It is one of many techqniques that osteopaths use to improve joint movement and release muscle tension.

 

To an osteopath, for your body to work well, its structure must also work well. So osteopaths work to restore your body to a state of balance, where possible without the use of drugs or surgery. Osteopaths use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, to relieve muscle tension, to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and to help your body’s own healing mechanisms. They may also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.

Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. It works with the structure and function of the body, and is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together.

 

Laura Tilson Osteopathy offer osteopathy, sports massage, acupuncture and cranial osteopathy from their clinic on Northcote Road. To book an appointment visit www.ltosteo.co.uk or call 020 7206 2625.

 

 

All osteopaths in the UK are regulated by the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). It is against the law for anyone to call themselves an osteopath unless they are registered with the GOsC, which sets and promotes high standards of competency, conduct and safety.

Osteopathy for Babies – 5 things you should know

Osteopathy for Babies – 5 things you should know.

1. TREATMENT IS EXTREMELY GENTLE

There are a number of gentle osteopathic techniques which can restore normal movement in areas of tension in the body. Cranial osteopathy can be used when other osteopathic techniques are not appropriate because it is so gentle.

2. OSTEOPATHS DON’T JUST TREAT BABIES’ HEADS

Osteopathy can improve movement through the joints and release tension through muscles anywhere in the body. Osteopathy for babies often treats tension in the neck, pelvis, diaphragm and spine because these are areas commonly affected by difficult births.

3. IT CAN HELP WITH A NUMBER OF ISSUES

When carrying out osteopathy for babies we do not treat symptoms and conditions.  Instead we look at the way your body works and try to make it work more effectively. For example, we do not treat asthma and we do not claim to cure asthma. What we do is look at the way the diaphragm, ribs and intercostal muscles are working. By improving the way they move, we may in turn improve the way you breath and reduce the effects that asthma has on your posture over time.

4. BABIES CAN BE TENSE TOO

It is normal for a new-born baby to have areas of tension in their body. This is because of the position they were in in the womb and the effects of the birth. Osteopaths assess your baby’s movements and by treating areas of tension may help your baby to be more comfortable and to relax more easily. If your baby is more comfortable he/she may feed, sleep and digest more easily.

5. IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE EXPENSIVE

The mantra of osteopaths the world over is to ‘find it, fix it and leave it alone’. We will aim to treat in as few sessions as possible so that you can enjoy your time with your baby. For many patients this may mean only one or two sessions.

Postnatal Fitness

Louisa Henderson BA (Hons) MOst MSCCO

Women’s Health Osteopath at Fresh Ground
Women can often feel weak and physically vulnerable after having a baby. During pregnancy ligaments stretch, muscles atrophy, fat is deposited and breasts grow. The way you use your body changes when you have a newborn and the forces you put through the spine and pelvis change. All great for your growing baby and giving birth, but perhaps a bit of a shock.

After your 6-week check you may feel ready to begin doing some post-natal exercise.There are some wonderful classes available in Wandsworth but please do check that you instructor is trained in post-natal care and give your body time to heal. Everyone has a different experience of pregnancy and labour and re-connecting with your abdominal muscles and pelvic floor takes time and practice. It may be worth considering it to be rehabilitation rather than exercise for the first few months post-natally.

It is so important to start from the beginning and retrain the muscles that have stretched and worked so hard for you during your pregnancy. The “core” is a complicated network of muscles which support your spine and pelvic floor. It is profoundly affected during pregnancy, as well as through both vaginal and caesarian births, and should be the first thing you rehabilitate. By doing so, you re-establish stability in the body and so avoid injury when you go back to normal exercise regimes at a later stage.

We offer post-natal check ups at Fresh Ground with Louisa Henderson our Women’s Health Osteopath.

At these Post-Natal Assessment appointments we provide:

  • Assessment of the pelvis and spine movements
  • Assessment of rectus diastasis
  • Pelvic floor exercises and advice tailored to your individual needs
  • Treatment for the pelvis and pelvic floor
  • Treatment for scar tissue restrictions
  • Treatment for rib pain

In this way treatment may improve symptoms of a wide range of illness and discomfort.

Testimonials:

“I took my daughter (9 months) to see Laura as I’d noticed she was very ‘fidgety’ feeding on one side, and only lay on her left in her cot. Laura is fabulous with babies, and after just on session she went home and had a nap on her opposite side for the first time ever! Highly recommended.” – Jen, Balham

“Laura did a few home visits to treat my newborn who was not sleeping or feeding well as he was very stiff in his neck. Laura’s treatment had an immediate positive affect that night. A HUGE relief for all. Laura was great; she took her time to make sure she understood the problems, was thorough examining and very gentle and calming for my baby in her treatment. I’d definitely recommend a home visit as it took the stress out of going out with an unhappy newborn.” – Johanna, Tooting

“I originally went to see Laura as I was worried that my daughter’s head and shoulders movement. Turns out that my daughter was absolutely fine but I booked myself in for a post natal check as I’m training for a marathon. Since then I’ve been having fortnightly sports related osteopathy/ massage sessions with Tali (based at the same clinic) and she has been absolutely fantastic, helping to loosen my tight achy muscles and preparing me for more training!” – Emma, Clapham

“I went to see Laura with lower back pain during my pregnancy. She was brilliant and really worked hard to get to the root of the problem, work on it and set me up with exercises to keep me on the right tra

Osteopathic Treatment for Shoulder Pain

Osteopathic Treatment for Shoulder Pain

Acute pain in a shoulder at the young women.

The shoulder is a complex joint and pain can occur due to injury of many different structures. One of the most common muscular injuries in the shoulder is to the rotator cuff. The rotator cuff are a group of muscles which stabilise the shoulder joint, they can become easily injured in sports or repetitive movements of the arm. Alongside pain people often experience weakness and limited movement in the shoulder, you may find it difficult to perform activities involving raising the arm or simple movements such as putting a coat on.

Occasionally ligaments or the capsule around the shoulder joint (glenohumeral joint) can become damaged, this can often be due to a traumatic onset such as a fall on an outstretched hand. It can be very painful and people will often notice ‘poping’, ‘clicking’ or painful catching in the shoulder. This type of fall can also typically affect a small joint called the acromioclavicular joint (ACJ), pain is often felt over the ACJ at the tip of the shoulder. Movements involving reaching across the body can be painful.

Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) occurs in about 3-5% of the population. It is a very painful condition and can be classified into three stages. ‘Freezing’, this is the first stage characterised by progressive loss of shoulder movement and an increase in pain (especially at night). The shoulder still has some range but is limited by both pain and stiffness. ‘Frozen’, this is the second stage where one has a greatly decreased range of shoulder movement. During the early part of this stage, there is still a substantial amount of pain. Toward the end of this stage, however, pain decreases. ‘Thawing’, in the final satge there is a big decrease in pain, especially at night. There is still a limited range of movement, but ability to complete daily activities involving overhead motion is improving at a rapid rate. The cause of frozen shoulder is not well understood, there is an increased incidence with conditions such as diabetes, hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism.

With careful examination and testing, Osteopaths are able to determine the cause of your shoulder pain and if appropriate will be able to treat the condition accordingly with manual therapy and exercise prescription.

Osteopathy for Shoulder Pain: SW11 Osteopath

Your Osteopath on Northcote Road

 Osteopathy for Shoulder Pain: SW11 Osteopath

Shoulder Pain

Shoulder Pain is common and can be caused by a number of conditions. These conditions include:

  • Rotator cuff problem  –  pain in the shoulder or upper arm, particularly when lifting the arm, lying on it or using the sore muscles. It is often the result of repetitive overuse of the arm and shoulder during a sport or activity or the result of a shoulder injury.  Age can also play a part.
  • Acromioclavicular joint pain  –  painful joint on the tip of the shoulder where the collarbone and shoulder blade join
  • Frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis  – is the painful and gradual stiffening of the shoulder capsule (the tissue that surrounds your shoulder joint) and the shoulder can often become so stiff and painful that it limits your ability to use your arm in everyday activities.
  • Referred shoulder pain – pain is experienced in an area away from the actual injury or problem e.g. pain in shoulder which is usually referred from the neck or upper back
  • Osteoarthritis – progressive wearing away of the cartilage of the joint leading to the two bones of the joint rubbing together causing pain. Patients who have had previous trauma or shoulder surgery are most likely to develop osteoarthritis in later life. Symptoms include swelling, stiffness, aching and sharp, stabbing pains.
  • Shoulder instability – dislocation or excessive movement of the shoulder joint.

How can an Osteopath help?

  • Shoulder problems are often complex and can take a long time to resolve. An osteopath will work with you to try and understand the cause of your shoulder problem.
  • Depending on your age, fitness and the diagnosis we may use a variety of massage, rhythmical articulation and stretching techniques to try and improve the movement in your shoulder and reduce tension in any tight muscles.
  • Treatment is different in every individual and we may massage and loosen the joints of the neck and upper and mid back and shoulder blade area and sometimes the low back and hips if we feel they are contributing to your shoulder pain.
  • We may offer specific strengthening or loosening exercises to the shoulder and offer advice on posture and look at how you use your shoulder and any lifestyle habits that may be contributing to your shoulder problem.
  • X-rays, scans or other tests may be required to make a diagnosis and we may refer you to your GP for any further treatment.
