NEW JOINT TREATMENT* Pain relief for stiff and painful joints

Are you suffering with stiff and painful joints?

*Fast, simple and effective pain relief using just one joint injection *

After using ultrasound to precisely identify the source of pain a single injection of hyaluronic acid lubricates the joint and provides effective pain relief.

How does it work?

The injections are the equivalent of an oil change in a car. Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in all joints but it is reduced in quality and quantity in arthritic joints. The result is increased lubrication, protection of joints and reduced pain for up to 12 months.

All our injections are performed under ultrasound guidance.

Hyaluronic joint injections are particularly good for:

*Hip joints*
*Knee joints*
*small joints in hand*

Who performs the scans?

Jonathan Wride is a specialist physiotherapist and musculoskeletal sonographer. Jon is licensed to prescribe and administer all joint injections

What will it cost?

An ultrasound scan and one injection of hyaluronic acid cost just £195.

(and are better than taking anti-inflammatories as they don’t damage the stomach lining).

Shockwave therapy. What is it? How does it work?

Shockwave Therapy

now available at Brookmans Park Osteopaths and is being strongly recommended by the NHS and NICE

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy uses high powered sound waves to stimulate new cell growth, encourage bone healing and reduce inflammation

Why is it so effective?

The treatment is used alongside diagnostic ultrasound to pinpoint the exact injury area. Shockwave therapy is non-invasive and very safe. After scanning it takes around 10 minutes to administer.

What can it be used for?

It is excellent for stimulating healing and reducing pain from tendon and ligament injuries. In particular, conditions such as:

*Frozen Shoulders*
*Shoulder rotator cuff injury*
*Tennis and golfers elbow*
*Hamstring and buttock pain*
*Knee pain*
*Hip pain and Bursitis*
*Foot and Achilles tendonitis pain*
*Plantar fasciitis*
*Ligament pain and strains*

Jon has used this technology on over 10,000 patients with brilliant results!

Here is Jon at Liverpool Football Club alongside the Champions League trophy. He was invited to lecture there on Shockwave therapy and teach the therapists how to get the football stars pain free faster. It must have worked!

The specialist treatments can ensure you are pain free faster!

Shockwave therapy £65

A 30 minute scan with full medical report – only £85

Our low back and neck exercise sheet

Brookmans Park Osteopaths Nick Cowan and Tom Glindon have created a bespoke low back and neck exercise sheet. Whilst demonstrating five of the most beneficial stretches they inserted their own photos and created a handy pocket sized low back and neck exercise guide.

Daily stretches are important to maintain mobility in the joints and encourage blood supply and stretch of the soft tissues. Stretching after an injury prevents build up of scar tissue and encourages the muscle and tendon to return to its pre-injury resting length.

Getting into a regular daily habit prevents shortening of the ligaments around the joint and can prevent bad postural habits forming.

Visiting an osteopath will ensure you do the right exercises correctly.

Rule of 90

Simply put the best way of sitting at a desk is to subscribe to the rule of 90’s. Sit with your hips, knees, ankles and elbows at 90 degrees and your computer monitor at eye level.

The truth is there is no perfect way to sit and sitting like this for hours in end will not save your posture. Be sure to move about and change your position subtly every 20-30 minutes. Basically you have 360 joints and 650 muscles in the body and they all need to move!
