About me

Osteopathic treatment

I practice gentle but effective manipulation of the spine and connective tissues to help improve flexibility and stimulate the body to heal itself. To successfully resolve long term musculoskeletal pain I give advice to help improve posture and gait. I show appropriate core stability exercises to improve stability where in the body it is needed. Balance is an often neglected skill and the cause of many injuries so via a series of exercises I will show you how to improve your balance skills so that wobbly paving stones will no longer be a hazard to fear!
"Why does my back/neck hurt?"

Our bodies did not evolve for sitting, but most of us spend a considerable time doing just that, whether in front of a computer, whilst driving, or relaxing in a sofa. Prolonged static slouching creates a weakness in the muscles that support the spine. These (postural) muscles lengthen and atrophy whilst the joints are forced into (outer-range) positions that over time accelerate degenerative changes. Eventually this may cause aches and pains in the joints. Joint pain is often felt as an ache, or bruised sensation, in the muscles that act on that joint. Discomfort in the joints may also set up protective muscle guarding that can contribute to symptoms of pain and stiffness. Piers focuses on finding the faulty movement and posture patterns that allow an injury to occur, then corrects it with treatment, advice on stabilising exercises and posture to aid lasting recovery from injuries.
