Often strained in sporting injuries, or seemingly a problem coming for no apparent reason, the shoulder complex (and it is complex, including your upper ribs, the shoulder blade, the collarbone and the arm, to the shoulder joint itself with it’s many muscles and tendons) can end up giving rise to all sorts of difficulties, from simple pulls and strains to the very painful and seemingly intractable “frozen shoulder”.

Often the shoulder is closely linked to how your upper back and neck are working, and your Osteopath will always treat them as an organic whole. Even very difficult and seemingly impossible conditions can be resolved with the right treatment.
We often treat the following…

  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Pains shooting from or to neck and/or upper back
  • Arthritis, rheumatism
  • Tendonitis, bursitis, sports injuries
  • Fibromyalgia

If you are suffering from lower back pain, one of our osteopathic team will work with you to establish the source of the pain before moving on to a specific treatment that’s right for you.

Through gentle manipulation we can realign your spine, relieving strain from different parts of the back, reducing pain and improving mobility.
We will then focus on the best ways for you to avoid lower back pain in the future.

The severity of back pain can vary hugely from person to person, with some experiencing a dull ache in the small of their back, while for others it can lead to excruciating pain and lack of mobility.
The symptoms of lower back pain can come on suddenly after lifting something heavy or a slip or fall. For some people it develops gradually as a result of poor posture or repeated strain.

Good posture is becoming increasingly difficult to achieve due to seemingly uncontrollable factors of our lifestyles. Stress, sitting for long periods of time, using electronic devices, carrying heavy bags and lack of exercise all contribute to poor posture.

Our team at Kennington Osteopaths understand the multitude of factors that can affect your posture and are able to offer simple and effective tips to avoid them. Our highly trained experts can also help to improve your posture and any spinal misalignments that might be causing you problems.
