How You Can Be Helped
Neck pain is a common but rarely serious problem. In the UK two out of three of us will experience it at some point. In general, most cases of neck pain are due to mechanical or non-specific causes, such as poor posture, muscle strain, or degenerative changes in the spine.
Shoulder pain is the third most common musculo skeletal problem for patients in the UK. The shoulder is the most moveable joint in your body. It helps you to lift your arm, to rotate it, and to reach up over your head and behind your back.
What most people call the shoulder is really several joints that combine with tendons and muscles to allow a wide range of motion in the arm — from scratching your back to throwing the perfect ball.
Most shoulder problems fall into four major categories:
- Tendon inflammation (bursitis or tendonitis) or tendon tear
- Fracture (broken bone)
Arm & Hand Pain
There are many different causes of arm and hand pain. Some common causes include:
Repetitive strain injuries (RSIs)
Trauma or accidents, such as fractures, dislocations, or sprains, can cause pain in the arm or hand.
Other medical conditions
With such a wide range of possible causes of arm and hand pain it is essential to get seen by an experienced practitioner.
Numbness & Tingling in Arm
Experiencing numbness and tingling in your arms can be a disconcerting and uncomfortable sensation.
These symptoms, although common, can stem from various causes and may indicate underlying health issues.
Our goal is to identify the root cause of the numbness and tingling, explore treatment options, and provide practical strategies to alleviate these distressing sensations.
Upper Back Pain
If you regularly sit or stand hunched over a desk or workstation, there’s a good chance you’re familiar with the stiffness and aching of upper back pain (also known medically as upper thoracic pain).
Mid Back Pain
Having mid back (or thoracic spine) pain is a common condition that may also feel like discomfort, tightness or tension in the middle of your back. The thoracic spine has a much lower range of motion than the upper or lower back, which means it’s much less prone to injury than those areas. However, thoracic pain can still occur due to poor posture, overuse, or trauma to the area.
The main functions of the thoracic spine are to provide stability, protect the spinal cord and provide an attachment point for the ribs and various muscle groups.
Lower Back Pain
Lower back pain is one of the most common health complaints in the UK, with an estimated 28 million people suffering from it at any given time. Over the past decade, lower back pain has become increasingly prevalent in the UK, with a recent survey finding that up to 40% of adults experience some form of lower back pain each year. The prevalence of lower back pain varies by age, with the highest rates reported among those aged between 45 and 64 years old.
Despite lower back pain being very common, the good news is that it usually improves within a few weeks with conservative treatment, including osteopathy, physiotherapy and acupuncture.
Sciatica refers to pain that travels along the path of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve travels from the lower back through the hips and buttocks and down each leg.
Leg pain refers to any discomfort or pain experienced in the legs, which can range from mild to severe and can be caused by a variety of factors. Treatment for leg pain depends on the underlying cause. Some treatment options include rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE), over-the-counter pain relievers, physical therapy, and in some cases, surgery. It is important to see a healthcare provider if you are experiencing persistent or severe leg pain, as it may be a sign of a more serious condition.
Hip pain is discomfort or pain in the hip joint or surrounding areas, including the groin, thigh, buttocks, or lower back. The hip joint is a ball-and-socket joint where the thigh bone (femur) fits into the pelvis. Hip pain can range from mild to severe and can be acute (sudden onset) or chronic (long-term).
Hip pain is more common in women than in men, and the risk of hip pain increases with age. In the UK, it has been estimated that up to 15% of adults aged 60 years and older have hip pain caused by osteoarthritis, which is the most common cause of hip pain in this age group. Other risk factors for hip pain include obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, previous joint injuries, and certain medical conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.
Ankle & Foot Pain
Some common causes of ankle and foot pain include:
Sprains and strains
Flat feet or high arches
Migraines are more common in women than men, and they often begin during adolescence or early adulthood. Headaches, on the other hand, can affect people of all ages and genders.
Headaches and migraines can have a significant impact on a person’s quality of life, causing pain, discomfort, and sometimes interfering with daily activities.
Headaches and migraines are commonly reported in the UK. According to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), approximately 10 million people in the UK suffer from headaches, and around 8 million of those people suffer from migraines.
Anxiety & Stress
Anxiety is a natural and normal human response to stress or danger, and it is a feeling of fear, apprehension, or unease about something that may happen in the future. It is a common experience that most people will have at some point in their lives. However, when anxiety becomes persistent or excessive, it can interfere with daily activities and quality of life and may be considered an anxiety disorder.
Stress is a natural response that occurs when an individual perceives a threat, challenge, or demand that exceeds their ability to cope. This response triggers a complex physiological reaction in the body that prepares the individual to take action to deal with the perceived threat. This response is commonly known as the “fight or flight” response and involves the release of hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol, which increase heart rate, blood pressure, and respiration, and sharpen the senses to prepare the individual to respond to the perceived threat.
Back pain is a common complaint among pregnant women, affecting a significant number of expectant mothers.
Factors such as hormonal changes, weight gain, postural alterations, and the shifting centre of gravity contribute to the development of back pain during pregnancy. Proper management and self-care strategies can help alleviate discomfort and improve the well-being of pregnant women.
Discover the causes of back pain in pregnancy, learn effective self-care strategies, and explore effective therapies available in our clinics.
Fertility & IVF
Struggling with infertility can be a daunting and emotional journey for couples longing to start a family. With approximately 20% of couples worldwide facing difficulties conceiving, the desire for effective solutions grows stronger.
That’s where assisted reproductive techniques (ART) like in vitro fertilization (IVF), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), and intrauterine insemination (IUI) come into play.
In recent years, acupuncture has emerged as a promising therapy for enhancing fertility and improving ART success rates.
Discover how this holistic approach can support your reproductive health with our comprehensive guide and available treatments.
