Are you in pain? We are here to help.
Welcome to the Peachey Therapy Clinic, a busy, friendly practice offering Osteopathy, Cranial Osteopathy, Medical Accupuncture, Podiatry/Chiropody and Sports and Remedial Massage. We have sites in both Edinburgh and Loanhead. Here our aim is to consider the patient as an individual. As well as treating the presenting symptoms we also try to establish their cause, as well as provide the patient with lifestyle and self-management advice to help prevent a reoccurrence. We also advise on the benefits of maintenance treatment to help keep the body in a state of health and avoid problems arising in the first place.
Unfortunately we are, generally, very bad at looking after our bodies. We would think nothing of spending money on a meal, servicing our cars or even a new pair of shoes (that we may only wear once!!). However, unlike all these transient items our bodies are for life so treating it well and servicing it regularly is a worthwhile, lifelong investment.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns before booking a consultation. Alternatively, if appropriate, to enable you to discuss your symptoms before undertaking treatment we offer a 15 minute FREE ASSESSMENT with the Osteopath or Podiatrist.
BackCare Awareness Week 2019
Back Pain in Golf – Low back pain is a common golf injury and recurrent episodes can hinder your enjoyment of the sport and have a huge impact on your life in general.
There seems to be a distinct lack of awareness regarding the prevention of back related injuries (and other injuries) among golfers.
Golf is a more dangerous sport than Rugby! ‘Low back injuries account for 15.2% to 34% of all golf injuries, followed by injuries to the elbow (7% to 27%), shoulder (4% to 19%) and wrist 10%’ – National Centre for Health Statistics.
Golf is a repetitive strain sport – With an average of 300 swings per golf-playing-day, a golfer repeatedly experiences minor traumatic injuries to the spine.
This year, the charity BackCare is focusing their awareness week on back health among golfers whether they are junior/seasoned, men/women, amateur/professional, and as trained, experienced healthcare professionals our team of Osteopaths are well placed to provide you with:
TREATMENT to help with any existing low back or other golf related injuries together with rehab exercises;
ADVICE on how to prevent reoccurrence and help you get the best out of your game.
We’re here to help so please get in touch.
