Jenny Quinn offers a friendly and professional osteopathic service in Washington, West Sussex (between Pulborough and Steyning and south of Horsham). Osteopathy can help treat and cure a range of musculoskeletal conditions such as sciatica, lower back and neck pain, trapped nerves and many more.

Osteopaths use their hands to diagnose and treat a range of conditions, from back pain to tennis elbow and people from new-borns to the elderly. The common aim of all treatment is to restore and maintain the structural integrity of the whole body to optimise health.

Millions of working days are lost each year in Britain due to occupational injuries. Whether outside with heavy awkward lifting or desk based, where and how we work can cause a need for osteopathic treatment which can not only help relieve pain but also prevent injuries from occurring.

Office related complaints treated with osteopathy include:

  • Repetitive strain injury to the wrist (mouse wrist)
  • Postural fatigue (computer hump)
  • Plantar fasciitis (arch pain from wearing high heels)
  • Neck and shoulder pain from frequent use of the telephone, which may lead to head aches and or carpal tunnel

Manual work injuries:

  • Lower back strain from heavy/ awkward lifting
  • Nerve and disc injury from prolonged bending
  • Repetitive strain injuries/ tendonitis
  • Bursitis (carpet layers knee)
  • Neck pain (ceiling painting)

Osteopathy in sport can help maintain and improve performance, as well as treat and rehabilitate many injuries that can occur. Knowing how important my sports are to me, I understand the need for fast recovery from injury.

Sports osteopathy can help with the following:

  • Restoring biomechanical alignment for maximum sporting efficiency.
  • Tendonitis – Tennis / golfers elbow.
  • Ligament strains
  • Injury prevention
  • Sports strapping

As pregnancy progresses your body adapts in several ways, these structural changes may reduce your bodies ability to function efficiently. Osteopathy is safe and effective at relieving pains that may develop as your body goes through these changes.

Common complaints treatable with osteopathy include:

  • Postural fatigue: As your centre of gravity moves with the weight of the baby, the muscles of your back must work harder and may tire quicker.
  • Ligament laxity: With increased levels of the hormones oestrogen and relaxin acting on your ligmants in preparation for labor you may be more susceptible to sprains and strains.
  • Joint pain: Additional weight in the later stages of pregnancy increase the loading on your joints, most commonly knee and hip.
  • Swelling in the extremities
