Reply To: Painful to sit down


Yes my GP did refer me but the NHS wait for the osteopath was 9 months so I went privately. As long as he had the referral he could access my scans and x rays and x rays without having to do more. The treatment was basically kneading and slowly stretching the piriformis and its anchor points to release it. I discussed in advance what he was going to do because I also have nerves trapped in my spine and didn’t want them aggravating. If he’s suggested fierce manipulation I’d have run a mile (if I could). A good osteopath can be worth his weight in gold. A bad one can be a nightmare.
