If you suffer from back pain or stiffness then Osteopathy can probably help. Lily is an Osteopath and a Naturopath working at the Natural Health Clinic, Inspiring Health in Falmouth. Here are a few words from one of her patients.
“Lily is an excellent osteopath. I can say that with conviction as I have been treated by many many osteopaths in different parts of the country over a period of some 30+ years.
I had suffered low back pain and intermittent debilitating spasms since my early 20s. In 1995 I bent awkwardly to pick up a heavy object and my lumbar 5 disc prolapsed. I had a partial discectomy and made a full recovery but continued to have the low back pain, stiffness and ‘locking’ spasms.
I have been helped through each ‘spasm’ episode by some very good osteopaths but Lily stands out as the best because she has finally gotten to the root cause of my problems – tight Psoas, weak core muscles. At every session, Lily gives me a thorough examination, taking me through my full range of movements. She then treats what she finds and explains what she is doing in a clear and understandable way. The treatments don’t stop at the clinic – Lily has given me exercises to do at home and some helpful lifestyle advice.
I am now pain free and enjoy continuing to strengthen my back and core muscles with a mixture of yoga, Pilates and the exercises recommended by Lily. I see Lily every couple of months – I liken this to taking my car in for a service, getting Lily to check for ‘wear and tear’ and make corrections and adjustments to avoid an actual breakdown. This is time and money well spent.
Lily is a warm and friendly person with a huge amount of knowledge and expertise. She treats me with kindness and patience and always explains what she is doing and why. I can whole-heartedly recommend Lily – and I know what I’m talking about”!
