Symptoms and Conditions
Shoulder, neck and arm problems often go hand in hand with one another. Problems with your neck can cause your upper body to compensate and result in symptoms in your shoulder, elbow or even your wrists. Even though you might have pain in your hand, it may be that your neck is the culprit… or the other way around!
There are many initial causes for shoulder, neck and arm pain, such as:
- Disc problems
- Long hours spent at a desk
- Increased stress
- Repetitive movements
These, in turn, can lead to:
- Muscular tightness that causes headaches and migraines
- Compression of the nerves that supply the arms causing problems such as:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Golfers / Tennis elbow
- Postural problems
- Repetitive strain injuries
How Osteopathy can help
After an initial consultation to determine the root cause of your problem, we use a variety of techniques that aim to resolve the initial cause and to tackle any other factors that may be causing your symptoms.
What is involved
Treatment involves manipulation, massage and articulation (gentle movement) of the joints to release restrictions, to decrease excessive muscular tightness or spasm and to encourage good movement and function of the joints involved. This promotes the healing and health of the problematic area by ensuring adequate blood supply, drainage and movement.
An initial consultation is up to an hour and twenty minutes – shorter if the condition is not too complicated. Treatment sessions are 30 – 40 minutes per session.
The average number of treatments with an osteopath is between 3-5, however it does very much depend upon the person and the problem they have. For example if you have to keep doing something in work that sets off your issue, you may need more sessions.

Great treatment, works wonders for any niggles or problems I have. My shoulders needed a fair bit of work due to general tightness and years of neglect. within two treatments the difference has been significant when testing and retesting but the difference how I felt lifting was huge. Very precise and knowledgeable in treating to the root of the issue and correcting it, very professional and super friendly. Going to be getting treatments on a monthly basis to keep me moving well.
