COVID-19: Open with limited capacity
We do what we believe an osteopath should do the following: treat patients professionally, educate our patients and help to prevent a wide range of problems from back pain and everyday aches, through to sports injuries and work-related ailments. At our Penarth osteopathic clinic, we use a holistic approach to treat the root of the pain and dysfunction, instead of just symptomatically.
Whether you are a weekend athlete or an elite performer, osteopathy has a lot to offer you. As osteopaths we are trained to look at both the injury and the body as a whole, particularly its biomechanics and the strains placed upon it.
Low back pain
The lumbar spine pain is one of the most common causes for time off work and is experienced by most of the population at some time in their working career. As a result of this it is essential to not only the individual but also their employer to help prevent problems with the lumbar spine.
At the start the of the 20th century William Garner Sutherland was studying the disarticulated bones of the cranium (skull); he was taught that adult cranial bones do not move so as to provide a hard and immobile protective shell around the brain.
The shoulder is an inherently unstable joint due to its shallow socket and high degree of flexibility. As a result of this the body uses a series of muscles to help stabilise it: the four main muscles are called the rotator cuff muscles, but other muscles from the chest, scapular and upper arm help provide power and some stability as well.
We are pleased to announce that we are now open once more, but with limited capacity.
