Daniel has been practicing Osteopathy at Napiers in Bristo Square, Edinburgh Osteopathic Surgery in Dalkeith Road as well as his own practice in Comely Bank. Osteopaths use touch and manipulation todiagnose and treat problems caused by misalignments of the muscles, bones, joints, ligaments and connective tissue that make up the musculoskeletal system.
Between the three clinics we currently treat approximately 200 osteopathic patients per week. These patients will range from young babies to those of a great age. Complaints will include back, knee,shoulder, neck & head pain, much as you would expect an osteopath to treat. We also treat babies who cannot suckle, do not sleep well, and suffer from colic or glue ear, as well as a range of problems in older children.
As an Osteopath my aim is to ease the pain associated the loss of function of the joint on a long term basis and to allow you to get on with your life. I explain why I think the problem has occurred,what is causing the problem, and, along with treatment, suggest ways to speed recovery and prevent reoccurrence.
Aches and pains are there for a reason and are signs that your body isn't working correctly. Injuries, bad posture and unnecessary tension are acquired as we go through life. The body tries to healthe problems, but if the strain is too great to heal fully, it then compensates. Gradually these injuries build up until the body is no longer able to compensate. This is when symptoms such as stiffness or pain develop.
