Bad Back – How do I choose what will be best?
If you have never had any kind of holistic or complementary therapy, then perhaps you are wondering what its all about, and most importantly, which one will help you?
Acupuncture, Osteopathy, Bowen, Reiki, Chiropractic, or the more familiar Sports Therapy/Massage? How do you decide?
We know our bodies more than we think -how often have you had the experience of needing to have a particular taste or eat a specific food, and what about the times when you know you just need to sleep or you have lots of energy and want to get out of the house?
It’s the same when our body is in pain, uncomfortable or distressed, listen to your body, what does it need? We generally know if we feel like a gentle or hard massage, or maybe its a good ‘jolt’ back into place, or perhaps some gentle manipulation of our sore and tender muscles.
Word of mouth, is of course, a great way to hear about successful treatments but remember, we are all different and what is good for one person may not be for another. Having a bad back, like a friend, does not mean the same treatment will result in the same outcome. That said, talking to friends, family and others, who have found positive remedies is helpful, and you can then find out more about whether you think it will help you.
Our website aimed to give you more information of the different treatments we have available, however please do not hesitate to ring us if you have any specific questions. Spend sometime to think about your pain and difficulties, and listen to what your body is saying to you. What are your goals and expectations from treatment and how long have you struggled and ‘put up’ with your pain and distress?
If you want some help to decide, give us a ring, our receptionists are very helpful, alternatively ask to speak to Diane for a more in-depth conversation, and you can ask to speak to anyone of your therapists, if you need to ask them specific questions before you decide.
