This patient presented with right shoulder and neck pain, as well as a band of pain across her low back that extended into her buttocks and right leg. She had been injured in a car accident three and half years previously and had seen many therapists including other osteopaths and three different physiotherapists, in the surrounding local areas. By one physiotherapist she was told it was all in her mind and she needed to “close her pain gate” which he showed her how to do by closing his hands together. In the left photograph, you can clearly see how her mechanical framework had been left after treatment from more than three other therapists, over a three and a half year period.  In the right photo, you can see how her whole body was correctly adjusted at Balance-Rite Osteopathy Clinic, after only two months and eight treatment sessions.

At only 31 years old, he had suffered with low back pain, pain between his shoulders and neck pain, for many years with frequent episodes of pain. During such an episode, he had seen many different osteopaths and they would treat him with a combination of massage, manipulation and ultrasound, to the area where he felt his painful symptoms.
