I believe that most back and joint pain, where there is no specific cause like arthritis or infection, occurs because of abnormal strain on the musculo-skeletal system. Abnormal strain on muscles and joints results in acute spasm, chronic muscle tension and joint locking, causing pain. There are various causes for this, including injury, posture, occupational strain or illness.
The tissues of the body reach a point where they become so chronically tight they cannot let go.
My treatment is manual and aims to release those tissues and ease long term strain patterns to restore function.
