Back Pain


Back pain can refer to lower back pain- pain around the buttocks, sacrum and below the ribcage; and mid back pain – pain between the shoulder blades, neck and the lower back which can also contribute to headaches and breathing difficulties.


Neck Pain


Neck pain, along with lower back pain, are the number one musculoskeletal condition people consult their GP for treatment.


If you have neck pain as the result of an injury, then it’s important to be seen by a health professional. Most episodes will have no obvious cause and can be the result of multiple factors, including stress, workload and lifestyle.


Shoulder Pain


Shoulder pain is the third most common reason why people see their GP for a musculoskeletal problem, after lower back pain and neck pain. Whilst the majority of shoulder pain is largely self-limiting, it is not uncommon for some discomfort to persist beyond 12-months – the evidence-based resources in this section aim to help you on your journey to recovery.

Knee Pain


Knee pain affects all ages and the reasons behind it can be varied.


No matter what the cause, knee pain can be worrying and often prevents people from doing the activities they love.


Elbow Hand & Wrist Pain


Wear and tear (degeneration) in your hand, wrist or elbow is a normal part of ageing. Avoiding movement and general physical activity is not advised unless recommended by a muscular skeletal specialist (such as an osteopath, physiotherapist, GP or specialist doctor). It is advisable to manage your condition using the POLICE principle under the guidance of an Osteopath or physiotherapist. These injuries are often due to repetitive overloading activities, without adequate arm strength.

Tendon Pain


Tendons are tissues that attach muscles to bones and allow the contractions of your muscles to move your joints. They are present in the upper and lower limbs, and treatment can vary depending on the site and how they affect the individual person. The condition can sometimes be associated with swelling, and pain with movement after rest, or following repetitive movement.
