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.

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.
