You’re only as good as your team, that’s why we’ve employed the finest selection of human beings in the North West, so wether you want an osteopath in Bolton or a physio, maybe an acupuncturist as you’ll be able to see for yourself down the page we have them. We bring a combination of experience and skill to make your visit to the clinic as comfortable and convenient as possible, while providing the best possible treatment to you. We are also listed with all major insurance companies such as BUPA for osteopathy and Physiotherapy, and though we are often known as a specialist back pain clinic with such a great team we offer so much more …
In training/coaching you can just overdo it and pick up an injury. I recommend the clinic to my students and friends.
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. Shoulder pain such as Frozen Shoulder can impact tension headaches with postural changes and reduced movement.
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.
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.

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.

Great clinic. Sorted my back issues
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
As an osteopath myself, I can say what great technique Mr Francis Connor used when treating my neck today. The clinic has a very friendly, relaxed ambiance and Mr Connor is extremely knowledgeable. Thank you.
I visited Francis after being diagnosed with SPD/PGP at 28 weeks pregnant, following a few weeks of unsuccessful attempts (recommended by a midwife and physio) to relieve the pain associated with this. I was in agony most of the day and night which was exasperated further by already having two young children. Francis suggested I may have been misdiagnosed with SPD and after taking a very detailed medical history, he treated me based on his own experienced opinion. The treatment was painless and felt quite therapeutic. Within a day or two my pain had reduced by 80-90%, I couldn’t believe it! I am no longer taking strong pain medication, my mobility has greatly improved, I am now sleeping much more comfortably and now feel I can actually start to enjoy the last few weeks of my pregnancy and this time with my other two children. I have recommended Francis to many of my friends already and also given his card to my pregnancy yoga teacher as a point of reference for the many pregnant women she sees who may be struggling with similar symptoms. Thank you, Francis! Hannah
