Back and neck pain: my approach

Posted on 13 November, 2017 at 20:45

When treating back and neck pain, it is essential tohave a strong understanding of the underlying anatomy, and the range of movement these areas are capable of.  I also look very closely to nearby structures that could be causing stress to this area.  To do this my knowledge of the biomedical framework has to be equal to, or greater than, my Chinese medicine knowledge.  

So when you come to your first consultation with me I'll use a numer of tools to determine your area of pain


  • Tests on range of motion  designed by experts in human mechanics
  • Tests on flexibility and stiffness designed by experts in human mechanics
  • Palpation: feeling for knots, stiffness
  • Visual: to look at patterns of discolouration and swelling
  • Listening: when going through your range of motions I'll be listening for cracks and creaks
  • Take your pulse: in Chinese medicine this will tel us if blood flow is smooth

After I have completed my examination I will determine if you need Tuina (Chinese massae), Acupuncture, herbs, heat, or a combination of these.  I will also give you some lifestyle advice that you can take home and ontinue with your treatment.  

Fixing and managing back and neck pain is a passion of mine; it is also something that I am very good at.  I achieve a great deal of success in this area with a satisfied customer base.

A Biological Masterpiece, But Subject to Many Ills
The human foot is a biological masterpiece. Its strong, flexible, and functional design enables it to do its job well and without complaint?if you take care of it and don't take it for granted.
healthThe foot can be compared to a finely tuned race car, or a space shuttle, vehicles whose function dictates their design and structure. And like them, the human foot is complex, containing within its relatively small size 26 bones (the two feet contain a quarter of all the bones in the body), 33 joints, and a network of more than 100 tendons, muscles, and ligaments, to say nothing of blood vessels and nerves.
