Advantages: You don't have to hang around waiting for hospital appointments and may only need 1 to 6 treatments
Disadvantages: May not be suitable for all back ailments, and may not always be pain free
This might not be suitable for everyone with back problems and i would seek a doctor's opinion before embarking on a course of treatment.
We first got involved with osteopathy when our son suffered a whiplash effect when in the car after we had had to swerve to avoid an oncoming maniac. I took him to the hospital and he was given a neck collar. For 10 days he wore the collar but would not move his neck and kept his chin tucked into his shoulder. I was getting worried that muscles would atrophy and he would be like that for the rest of his life. He was 3 at the time. A friend suggested an osteopath as the hospital was as much use as a chocolate fireguard. The osteopath gave it a few swift clicks, my son was able to move his neck and never wore the collar again.
I needed to go to see one after suffering with bad back pain as a result of bad posture. Again some clicks or freeing up of stiff tendons and I'm almost as good as new.
Again choose someone is registered with the governing body-you don't want to end up in a worse state.
