Nick is fully registered with the General Osteopathic Council which is the statutory regulatory body of the osteopathic profession. He is also a member of the British Osteopathic association and the Osteopathic Sports Care Association.Since 1993
Nick has worked in several varied practices. This includes rural practices in Leek and Macclesfield and several years spent at the Old Hall Clinic in Gatley. This allowed Nick to gain a very broad base of patient experience, including treatment of NHS patients. He has been practising in Didsbury since 1999 and founded the Burton Road Clinic in 2005.
Nick principally uses structural osteopathy but having trained extensively in cranial osteopathy he can use this approach when appropriate or if patients prefer.
In the Clinic
Using osteopathy Nick treats a wide variety of mechanical problems:
- Back and neck pain Often caused by time at the computer, driving, manual jobs, trauma such as falls, stress or postural problems.
- Acute and chronic back pain which can be common after unexpected movements or jarring. These sort of injuries are very common and can be initially painful but may progress further over subsequent weeks or months.
- The postural changes of pregnancy Both during pregnancy and the period after giving birth are times when tremendous mechanical loads and changes are placed upon a womans body. Osteopathy can help cope with and adapt to these changes as well as treat neck, shoulder, back and leg symptoms as they arise.
- Shoulder problems These may be due to sports injuries or computer use, or they may be related to ageing.
- Hip and knee injuries Nick commonly treats patients with sports injuries affecting these joints such as patellofemoral pain or runners knee and the elderly suffering with problems associated with degenerative change.
- The pain of arthritis Osteoarthritis, or wear and tear of joints, cannot be reversed but Nick can help minimise the pain and maximise function of the affected area. This is particularly beneficial to hips, knees and the spine.
This is not an exhaustive list. Osteopathy can help most musculoskeletal problems. Please feel free to contact Nick at the Burton Road Clinic to enquire whether osteopathy can help you.
