In training/coaching you can just overdo it and pick up an injury. I recommend the clinic to my students and friends. James Doherty
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.
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.
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.
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.

Fran has been wonderful - truly trying to help all of me, not just my back/shoulder/neck issues. A friendly, helpful and caring place to visit. Could not give higher praise. The pictures below show my natural stance, and how Fran has taught me I should stand. I hope to continue to work with Fran in the future and already have such a difference from just 3 appointments - don't get me wrong I have a long way to go but I am confident Fran and his team will get me there
Had a 30 minute deep tissue massage for a sore back, the treatment did wonders and feeling a lot better. Will definitely return for further treatment, very competitive prices too considering they're probably the most qualified masseuses i have come across.
I came for some treatments here and I can't believe I never noticed the practice since we lived here. Francis is awesome and his knowledge and skill is extensive Tracey is awesome too she is very friendly and polite. I would recommend anyone here.
I have seen Francis periodically over some years now and always have confidence he will sort me out. He is extremely pleasant and very helpful, giving advice about lifestyle, exercise etc.
Seen Francis for various injuries from Judo and BJJ always sorted, most recently elbow injury which was really bugging me at work.
