When to visit Marcus
As an Osteopath, most people visit when they are experiencing pain in the muscles or joints, or nerve pain. The pain may be a result of an acute injury, or it may be pain that has been around for months or years- what many call ‘chronic pain’ or ‘chronic intermittent pain’ if it is pain that comes and goes.
An incomplete list of what many people have visited Marcus for over the past decade includes:
- Sports injuries
- Neck, back, and joint pain, including disc injuries
- Postural back pain
- Muscle strains and spasms
- Nerve entrapments such as carpal tunnel and sciatica, and
- Headaches, migraine and jaw pain
If you are experiencing an ache or pain and are not sure if Marcus can help, feel free to give us a call and request a ‘call back’ from Marcus. He can have a brief chat with you about your concerns, and advise if his approach is most suitable.
