Tamworth Osteopath cures headache symptoms

Monday, February 28th, 2011

Tamworth Osteopath John Williams has yet another success with treating persistent headache symptoms. A headache is very frustrating to many people and can leave the sufferer irritable and unable to concentrate fully at work and at home.

Osteopathy may be the answer if headaches are a problem and Tamworth osteopaths at Atlas Pain Relief Centre have a variety of treatment options including acupuncture, physiotherapy or neck manipulation which may help.

Tamworth Osteopaths can offer an alternative treatment to Tamworth Chiropractors for spinal manipulations and are experienced at dealing with stiff neck and tension headaches

After just one treatment from John Williams the Tamworth Osteopath at Atlas, the headache had gone and the following testimonial was forwarded as a way of thanking the clinic for relief of painful headaches.

“I have suffered with headaches for a long time and they were starting to get a lot more frequent and more severe.

I was initially going to give acupuncture a try, but following my first consultation I started treatment with the Osteopath at Atlas. I had 3 sessions with John and I am so happy to say that I have not had one headache since.

I cannot believe that I have put up with it for so long and wished I had tried this a lot earlier. It is definitely money well spent.

Atlas is very professional but the staff are also very friendly and approachable. Many thanks to John for giving me a new lease of life! I will definitely recommend this to others”.

Cranial Osteopathy from Tamworth Cranial Osteopath helps baby with colic

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

Tamworth Cranial Osteopath John Williams has more success treating babies with Colic symptoms at the Atlas Osteopathy Clinic in Lower Gungate, Tamworth.  Babies with colic symptoms are distressed and unhappy and it is very upsetting to see them in pain. Many sentences and words describe babies with colic.  Windy baby, windy babies, babies with wind, trapped wind and baby with colic all describe symptoms of infantile colic.

Thankfully there is help available and cranial osteopathy seems to be effective in treating the symptoms of colic.  After just 4 visits the colic symptoms had eased and the baby appeared far more relaxed and at ease. Worried parents can view the website www.tamworthosteopath.co.uk for more information on cranial osteopathy

Below is the “thank you” testimonial from the mother of the 5 week old baby who has recently been successfully treated at the Atlas Cranial Osteopathy Clinic

“Our newborn daughter suffered from Colic and we had tried no end of different things and nothing worked! At 5 weeks old we took her for Cranial Osteopathy hoping it would work after hearing lots of people recommend the treatment. After 4 sessions her colic has gone and she is a much more settled baby in general. We are delighted with the results, just wish we had taken her sooner.”

Tamworth Back Pain Practitioner suggests caution.

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

Tamworth Osteopath and back pain practitioner John Williams of Atlas Pain Relief Centre in Tamworth town centre is disappointed at the way some back pain practitioners ask their patients to prepay for 24 treatments up front.

The Atlas Pain Relief Centre has a website www.tamworthosteopath.co.uk  and their range of different back pain treatments can be viewed by visiting this website.

John suggests caution if your practioner suggests prepayment for 24 sessions during your first visit.  You may be better in 6 sessions and have overpaid or indeed may feel worse and have to endure more painful treatments that you would like. 

 This practice has come to light after a number of unhappy patients released this information.  Usually the patient is told they need 24 treatments to rectify their complaint and are told they need to attend for 3 treatments per week.  As an incentive to prepay for 24 treatments they are offered a discount.

Firstly this is surely bad practice and asking a patient on their first visit to prepay for 24 treatment sessions up front is taking advantage of people who are in pain and seeking help.

Patients can well have conditions that take longer to treat and some patients may,  over time, end up having this amount of treatment, however most back pain conditions would not require 3 treatments per week for 8 weeks.

At Atlas Pain Relief Centre their back pain practitioners offer a variety of treatment options for back ache, disc bulges, slipped disc, sciatica, trapped nerve, sacroiliac joint inflammation, twisted pelvis, and muscular twinges and the majority of their patients are pain free in 6 visits.  John said “Offering patients a discount is a generous gesture if they prepay for 6 visits but asking for prepayment for 24 sessions is, in my opinion, wrong”.

Tamworth Chiropractors, Tamworth Osteopaths, Tamworth Physiotherapists, Tamworth Acupuncturists and Tamworth Sports Therapists all treat back pain and the general public are often confused as to “who does what”.  It is therefore important that this practice does not contaminate the reputation of us all.  We do not want the public thinking that all back pain practitioners are the same. 

The majority of back pain practitioners do not operate in such a way and are effectively regulated by their respective governing bodies.  It is a comfort to patients that registered practitioners are regulated and that they behave in a professional manner.  Let us hope that this kind of protocol will cease and the reputation of our professions have not been damaged.
