  •   Fantastic very professional and felt comfortable throughout my treatments. I have had back problems for a long time and since I have been going to see Francis I have been very happy. I do recommend stretches by Francis at home plus a treatment every 4-8 weeks depending on my lifestyle and I have not had as many problems with my back anymore. Unlike other places I have been that just do stretches with you and use an ultrasound machine, Francis is very hands on and you feel like you had a good treatment. I would highly recommend this clinic

  •   Francis was great. He has sorted my slipped disc a few years ago. He gave me exercises to do that meant I could reduce the treatment needed and increase my mobility. Now sorting my shoulder. Problem RSI.

  •   First came to see Frances years ago with a back injury. After that initial visit he is always my first thought when I have a mobility problem. Professional, courteous yet friendly is how I would describe the service here. I have recommended to others who are now regular clients.

  •   Francis has done a brilliant job on the pain in my right leg and lower back. After years of being dismissed by the NHS and taking a lot of pain killers I finally feel we are getting to the root of the problem and the pain is becoming less noticeable everyday. Thank you 😊 X

Conditions

Here’s a few ailments we see regularly.

Back Pain

Back Pain
Back pain is one of the largest complaints to Deansgate Osteopathic Clinic, in fact the treatment of back pain in Bolton follows the epidemic proportions in the western world. Research shows that 60% of the UK’s population will suffer from it at some stage during their lives. Back pain responds well to osteopathic treatment – reducing pain and restoring mobility and quality of life.

Sciatica
Sciatica refers to an irritation of the sciatic nerve, the sciatic nerve comes from the lumbar and sacrum then down the legs. An irritation to the sciatic nerve can commonly give you backpain, however sciatic irritation can give rise to a multitude of symptoms, such as pain along the back of the leg, pins and needles or even weakness. Sciatica itself is not a diagnosis but an irritation to the sciatic nerve.
Sports Injury

Here at Deansgate Osteopathic Clinic our sport injury therapists offer sound advice, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation to get you fit and back loving the sports you enjoy.

Treatment is provided by osteopaths/physiotherapists who work in the clinic and also involved in the amateur/professional fields of sports with experienced to help you get fit.

Sports Injury refers to the kinds of injuries that commonly occur during sport or exercise, however our sports injury therapists in Bolton also take into consideration any activity where you can strain your body such as gardening or even decorating your house. Sport and exercise is very beneficial to health. They can reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and obesity and help to beat depression.

Shoulder Pain
Tension Headaches
Headaches we’ve all had one at some point, there very common and because they happen regularly, often people refer to them as “just a normal headache” or commonly a “tension headache”. They feel like a constant ache that affects both sides of the head, often described as a tight band is stretched around it.
Knee Pain
Sudden pain in one of the knees is usually the result of overusing the knee or injuring it. In many cases, you don’t need to see your GP. The knee joint is particularly vulnerable to damage and pain because it takes the full weight of your body and any extra force when you run or jump. You’re more likely to experience knee pain as you get older, and people who are overweight or do lots of sports have a higher risk of damaging their knees. Some sports that involve a lot of turning, such as football, netball and skiing, carry a particularly high risk of knee injuries.
Neck Pain
Neck pain is the most common condition next to back pain, it can refer pain to the shoulders and arms and can be related to headaches.
Whiplash
Whiplash is unfortunately a common presentation to the clinic in Bolton, the injury itself is an injury to the neck caused by a sudden movement of the head, such as a accident in the car where there is a rear impact, and the head is violently thrown forwards and backwards, sometimes can only becomes apparent 6-12 hours after the accident.
