Your local Well4ever clinic in SW15 offers a range of therapies for problems relating to the bones, joints and muscles. Back, neck and shoulder pain are commonly experienced as a result of tension in the musculoskeletal system. Problems affecting the bones, muscles and joints can develop for a wide variety of reasons, such as a one-off injury, a sports injury that causes trauma to one specific area of the body, chronic disease, a life-time of poor posture or repetitive movements or prolonged immobilisation. Diet and nutrition also affects the formation of the tissues which make up our muscles and bones. Pain originating the bones, muscles or joints can affect anyone, regardless of their age, lifestyle and general health.

Reflections of misalignment or tension can manifest as pain in various areas of the body, most notably the joints, lower back, shoulders and neck. Difficulties in the musculoskeletal system can be in a number of ways, from acute and local pain to generalised, dull ache, ranging from unbearable and immobilising pain to mild discomfort. Pain in one area of the body may be a signal that something is amiss in another part of the body. Misalignment may cause problems to digestion and even show up as a skin disorder.

Musculoskeletal pain can have a significantly negative impact on your life, effecting your occupation, hobbies, physical activities and day to day tasks. Whether your pain is acute or chronic, caused by an injury or a more long-term condition, manual therapy can help to eradicate the root cause of the problem or ease the symptoms, by releasing built up tension in the muscles, aligning joints and vertebrae, performing articulations, promoting the body’s natural ability to heal itself and practitioners can advise you on correct posture.
