Lower Back Manipulation

 
Hey there, it's Michael Brown from Cram Osteopaths in Glasgow! Today, I want to chat about one of the techniques we use in our practice: the lumbar spine manipulation technique. This one might give you a satisfying click or pop, and it's especially beneficial for those dealing with facet joint issues.
 
You may have seen us diagnose these conditions in our previous videos, but I thought it'd be great for you to experience it from a patient's perspective before visiting us. If you're dealing with one of these conditions, this technique could be just what you need.

What does shockwave therapy treat?

 
 
Shockwave therapy is specifically designed to tackle those persistent, nagging tendon injuries that just don't seem to go away.

They can be incredibly stubborn and resistant to conventional treatments as they progress into chronic phases.
