Firstly Osteopathy treats joints and muscles to re-balance movement, improve posture and relieve pain. Nottingham Osteopath
Whilst osteopaths specialize in issues relating to the spine, osteopaths can help the majority of problems related to muscles, joints and nerves.
Subsequently We have a keen interest in treating sports injury and assisting sport performance. At Original Movement Osteopathy we specialize in complimenting treatment with corrective exercise and rehabilitation. As a Nottingham Osteopath we provide many services.
For persistent non-specific lower back pain the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends a course of treatment of approximately 8-12 weeks of manual therapy that can include spinal manipulation and acupuncture. It can be challenging to access this type of treatment in a timely and convenient manner. At Osteopathy Nottingham, based at the Original Movement holistic studio, we provide a comprehensive program with each of these elements.
Treatment is patient centered with a key focus being on self-management of symptoms. Too often conventional treatment stops when pain is alleviated, but at Original Movement a course of treatment includes a ‘functional exercise program’ designed to improve how we lift, bend, shift and twist for pain free movement. A functional program aims to address individual deficits in strength and mobility at the root cause of pain and dysfunction.
Osteopathy Nottingham specialise in treatment of chronic ongoing back pain.
We use manual therapy including massage, acupuncture and manipulation and combine this with exercise and functional movement education to treat chronic pain. We differ from physiotherapy because we use a ‘patient centred’ approach in which treatment is tailored to your needs.
6 simple and effective things you can do to help manage low back pain
Keep moving – The worst thing you can do is spend prolonged periods of time being still. Avoid being sat for too long, prolonged sitting will only make pain worse. Although lying down will provide temporary ease, it will not aid recovery and will increase stiffness. This is why we back pain is usually worse in the mornings. Read more →

Emerging evidence suggests that variation is inherent within a functional movement such that no movement is never performed the in the same way twice. That ‘normal’ movement patterns may not exist and that to attempts to ‘retrain ideal movement’ for purposes of musculoskeletal rehabilitation may be erroneous. This has led to criticism of biomechanical approaches to movement rehabilitation. Is it time to re-evaluate the standard biomechanical model? Read more →
Pain is a highly complex, integrated psychosocial phenomena that can change even when we talk about it or observe it. Emerging research in neuroscience suggests that cognition plays a large part in the pain experience. In a bio-psycho-social model of pain management, pain is thought of as a manifestation of the brains perceived levels of situational threat. Therapists should appreciate that the way we communicate can alter these perceptions and radically alter a patient’s pain experience. So how do improve our ability to influence and change pain perception? Read more →
Conventional thought suggests that for most distinct movement patterns (e.g. squat, lift, sit, push, pull, step, lunge, bend, twist etc.) there is an ideal form or technique. In contrary to this emerging research suggests that variation in movement is actually quite ‘normal’, such that no movement is ever repeated in the same way twice (1). In this article we discuss how loss of movement variation is associated with increased incidence of injury and reduced performance. We go on to recommend that traditional training and rehabilitation may be extended to include strategies to increase movement variation. Read more →

70% of health problems presenting to clinicians involve chronic, complex medical conditions such as chronic low back pain (CLBP) (1). The prevailing philosophy in western conventional medicine is an evidence-based biomedical model, also referred to as allopathic or orthodox medicine. There is a suggestion that this model is insufficient to deal with chronic, complex conditions. In this article we comment on the advantages and potential flaws of a biomedical model and implications in rehabilitative therapy. Read more →
Developments within neuroscience have led to a greater appreciation of the importance of psychosocial factors and the impact of human cognition and behavior on pain perception. Pain has a useful physiological purpose; it serves as a protective mechanism helping us avoid behaviours that may cause injury and harm, enhancing our chances of survival. But is pain only in the mind? Read more →
