In your first appointment at Central Oxford Osteopathy, one of our osteopaths will work with you to understand the location of your trapped nerve and tailor a treatment plan to meet your individual needs. Trapped nerves can cause local discomfort where they are under pressure, as well as referred pain or tingling in other parts of your body. We can use a wide range of gentle manual treatments depending on your age, fitness and diagnosis including massage, rhythmical articulation and stretching techniques to try and release the pressure on the nerve and address the associated irritation to the nerve. Sometimes we may gently manipulate a joint to relieve local pressure and improve joint mobility. During this type of treatment you may hear a “click”.
Your long term recovery is important to us. Once we have treated your immediate pain at the clinic, we will help you maintain your recovery by recommending gentle exercise and stretches you can do at home to avoid tension building up around the nerve again. We may offer advice on your lifestyle particularly if we feel there is a repetitive activity that may increase the risk of recurrence. We may also offer advice on your posture and provide advice on diet and exercise.
If you think we can help you with your pain, then book to see an osteopath at our Oxford clinic today.
Jamie treated my neck, gave me exercises to repeat and probably more importantly, convinced me I had a healthy spine. Within
two weeks I was a new woman, and have been pain free for weeks and weeks."

"After twisting my back when picking up my daughter, I was struggling to walk. I had two sessions with Jamie and have continued
with the exercises which he suggested. A month later, my back feels great and the pain has completely gone."

"For the first time in years I am no longer taking pain killers and able to sleep through the night"
