With an interest in treatment of sports injuries, headaches and migraines, osteopath Tom Harper is an avid proponent of pain relief treatment via the osteopathic modality, highlighting the importance of seeking treatment sooner rather than later, in order to reduce and prevent pain and suffering that may become debilitating, allowing patients to lead normal, happy active lives. Having received osteopathic treatment himself, Harper believes it’s one of the safest and most effective modalities of treatment of back pain available.

The Nuneaton Osteopathic Clinic website explains typical causes of various types of pain, back pain and sciatica are the most common, being responsible for more days off work than the flu. For that reason many General Practitioners prescribe painkillers and anti-inflammatories, which can help, unless there’s an underlying cause such as structural or mechanical problems with joints. In these cases, several treatments may be required for long term results and exercises are often prescribed in conjunction with treatment.
Neck pain is often attributed to poor posture, particularly at work from working in front of a computer, carrying heavy or awkward objects, favouring one should for carrying a heavy bag, but also from watching TV or being on the computer at home, sleeping on too many or not enough pillows and some sporting activities. Headaches and migraines are usually caused by either allergies or food tolerances, or stress and tension to the neck, shoulder and upper back region from work, or stress and worry.
Shoulder pain can also be caused by work, or a sporting injury. Other sporting injuries include: tennis and golfers elbow, groin strain, shin splints, pulled muscles, plantar fasciitis, delayed onset muscle soreness and running injuries such as knee pain. Common sports injuries seen by the Clinic come from some of the following codes or types: football, running, cycling, swimming, boxing and martial arts, skiing, racquet sports, weightlifting, rock climbing, skateboarding, horseriding and also from dancing, gymnastics, yoga, walking; even gaming injuries (RSI).
Harper strongly recommends preventative pain measures. It is recommended that older people receive regular treatment, typically monthly, for maintenance of back issues. The Clinic also provides massage services for pain prevention, relief of tension caused by work or sporting activities, improved energy levels and sleep, and eliminating toxins in the body.
