Edinburgh osteopath for pain relief

Edinburgh osteopath for pain relief

If you’re looking for an Edinburgh osteopath for pain relief, read on…  Although there are more than 30 to choose from now (there were 6 when I arrived in Edinburgh in 1992), I will argue that we are the natural choice.

Musculoskeletal pain affects 1 in 3 people in Scotland.  That’s 1.7 million people.  And pain in Edinburgh is just as common as any other part of Scotland.

Edinburgh osteopath specialising in pain relief

Some osteopaths do more than pain relief.  We don’t.  We focus on pain (but as you’ll see below, we go beyond relief).  With over 30 years in practice myself. And I had about 7 years of on/off low back pain and sciatica in my 20s.  This has given me a lot of insights into pain.

Then I’ve written 2 books on lower back pain.  And completed a Masters Degree in the Clinical Management of Pain at the University of Edinburgh.

Pain relief in Edinburgh from a Lifestyle perspective

I have a lifestyle medicine approach to pain too.  Having completed a Diploma in Lifestyle Medicine through the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine.

Pain relief shouldn’t be your ultimate goal

We believe in prevention too.  We will provide rapid pain relief.  But if you don’t take steps back away from the edge of The Cliff of Pain, you”re likely to fall off again.

The Pain Relief / Pain Trigger cycle

Many people recover from their pain – they get relief.  They get as far as the cliff top.  But then all it takes is another puff of wind, and they fall off again.  Some people spend years yo-yoing up and down the Cliff of Pain.
