Osteopathy for neuralgia

Neuralgia is the pain caused by damage to nerves. This can be caused by ligaments, muscles or bones, and osteopathy can help by reducing the irritation in the affected nerve. Neuralgia can also happen after infections and may be caused by conditions such as diabetes. If this is the case, osteopaths can help by referring you to the correct health pathway.

    Case study:
    pain relief for ongoing nerve irritation

    Find out how we helped solve nerve irritation that started more than 20 years ago for our patient.

    Problem

    Our patient came to the clinic suffering with ongoing nerve irritation in his low back from a previous slipped disc injury. He also had some nerve damage in his right shoulder from a previous whiplash injury. Both of these injuries had occurred 20+ years previously, but were still causing ongoing issues. The patient had seen an osteopath before which helped him greatly when the injury first occurred. However, he had not kept up any maintenance treatments or exercises, and poor posture from sitting at a desk all day resulted in long term issues.

    Solution

    We still treat this patient on a maintenance basis once a month to keep him mobile and release any pressure on the nerves. We also encourage him to do exercises at home between sessions to help keep any symptoms at bay. We have helped him to rearrange his desk at work, so he is now sitting with much better posture.

    What did our patient think?

    The first session I had at OsteoWellbeing, I couldn’t believe how much freer and taller I felt. I have a habit of leaning forwards when I’m standing and I have always had really tight hamstrings which I have been told I would never be able to lengthen. However, Süheyla made me realise it wasn’t just my hamstrings that were tight but also my calves. When I get into a good routine and stretch my calves and hamstrings daily, my low back flexibility increases greatly and I have less pain in my back. I now go for maintenance sessions to keep me on track.
