CAN OSTEOPATHY HELP WITH SCIATICA? Established for over 14 years Chestnut Osteopathic are a highly recommended practice with female GOsC registered professional osteopaths.

What is Sciatica? Sciatica refers to pain that runs along the sciatic nerve. The pain usually affects only one side of the lower body at a time and often extends from the lower back all the way through the back of the thigh, down to the leg. Occasionally the pain may also extend to the foot or toes. It is often a reoccurring condition that seems to worsen with every episode.

What are the symptoms of Sciatica? • Buttock, hamstring and/or calf pain that is worse when sitting • Lower back pain that is worse for coughing or sneezing • Weakness, numbness or difficulty moving the leg or foot

In young and early middle-aged adults most sciatica results from inflammation or pressure from a bulging disc which can be very painful. In older people, changes in the spine due to conditions such as osteoarthritis may be responsible. Aggravating factors of sciatica include:

Post Pregnancy Clinic Care During & Post Pregnancy Cranial Osteopathy Retired Specialist Retired Specialist Clinic Available Cranial Osteopathy Clinic Available Cranial Baby & Children’s Clinic

Your osteopath will diagnose sciatica by taking a full medical history and by testing your back, hips, and legs for strength, flexibility, sensation, and reflexes. In some cases it may be necessary to get an MRI scan of your back to show whether or not there is a specific disc injury pressing on a nerve. Your osteopath will discuss this with you. X-Rays are of no help in this condition because they only show the bones and not the softer tissues that cause this sort of trouble.

• Being overweight • Not exercising regularly • Wearing high heels Without proper care, pinching of the sciatic nerve may result in months or even years of pain.

How is Sciatica diagnosed?


www.express-press.co.uk t:01926 815935

How is Sciatica treated? Osteopathy has an essential role both for the acute episode as well as long term avoidance of further episodes. The most common type of sciatica that we encounter responds well to osteopathic treatment, which consists of relieving pressure and inflammation off the sciatic nerve. Typical sciatica treatments include:

• Gentle Spinal mobilisation of the lower lumbar spine • Release of muscle spasm • Traction of the lumbar spine •

Gently articulation of the affected joints

Rehabilitation exercises

WHAT IS

NORMAL MOVEMENT?

Physiotherapists often talk about Normal Movement, but what is it and what does it mean? Normal movement is the ability to move in a smooth, coordinated way without using too much effort and without causing damage to the body. It is the aspects of posture and movement that relate to the normal adult population and it depends upon a system of nerves and muscles that can respond to a variety of stimuli from within and outside the body. There is a very wide range of what is considered to be normal.

What do we need to move normally? There is a huge list of things that contribute to normal movement and that need to be considered when analysing movement. The main factors are:• Strength and stability – the strength to hold our bodies up against gravity and also the stability to hold parts of our body still while other parts are moving. • Range of movement and alignment – having sufficient movement available in the muscles and joints and having them aligned correctly. • Muscle tone – the readiness of the muscles to contract, not too floppy and not too stiff. • Spatial awareness - an awareness of where our body parts are in relation to each other and in relation to the space around us. • Sensation – the feeling through our skin and joints (hot, cold, pressure, touch). • Balance – the ability to stay upright while still, while moving and while being moved. • Motivation or goal – most of us move for a reason, there is a goal in mind, even if it is just reaching for a cup of tea.

How does it all work? It is very complex and involves many different areas of the brain, as well as very specific interaction between the muscles. There are whole text books devoted to normal movement and how it is generated! To enable us to move normally there is a lot of communication between the brain, the spinal cord and the muscles (feedforward and feedback) as well as the ability to react and respond to movement (balance reactions).

Feedforward and feedback The brain, spinal cord and muscular system work together and communicate to enable us to move. There is feedforward from the brain through the spinal cord to the muscles to tell us how and why to move. In turn the muscles, skin and joints feedback through the spinal cord to the brain to adjust and refine movement and inform us about the environment. For example when reaching for a cup of tea - the brain feels a need for a drink and communicates with the spinal cord to tell it where the cup is and the best way to reach it. The spinal cord gives the message to the appropriate muscles that they need to move and we reach for the cup. While we are reaching for, and taking hold of the cup our muscles and skin receptors are constantly feeding back to the brain via the spinal cord so that the movement can be adjusted and modified. They may feedback that the cup is very hot, that is fuller than expected and so on. This allows the brain to modify the movement and account for the unexpected.

Balance reactions

Emma Thomas

These are how the body reacts and responds to movement Neurological and Stroke so that we can stay upright. There are small adjustments to Physiotherapy posture that enable the body to compensate for movements Neurological and Stroke of the limbs so that we don’t become unbalanced. There Specialist Physiotherapist in stroke, neurology are reactions that help to maintain symmetry and alignment Physiotherapy and elderly rehabilitation of the body. Finally there are reactions that protect us such • Stroke • as stepping to stop us from falling if we lose balance (or are • Multiple Sclerosis • • Parkinson’s Disease • pushed) or putting our arms out to protect our head and face • Motor Neurone Disease • if we do fall.

Emma Thomas

What happens when it goes wrong? If an element of the system is damaged or doesn’t work properly movement patterns become abnormal. When movement is not normal: It is harder– it takes more effort to move and we use much more energy. It can cause damage – the muscles and joints can become stiff or over stretched, usually causing pain. It is less efficient – it might be slower, less co-ordinated, less balanced. Often in the case of injuries or damage to the muscles and bone the movement returns to normal once the damage has healed. Sometimes treatment is needed to help get the movement completely normal or to speed up the process. In the case of damage to the nerves, spinal cord or brain the impact is often much bigger and sometimes movement will never be completely normal again.

How can a neurological physiotherapist help? Neurological physiotherapists have specialist knowledge of how normal movement is generated and how to analyse movement. They focus on improving the quality of movement and teach people to move in the most efficient way possible so that they can conserve energy and move more easily. Neurological physiotherapists use specialised handling skills to facilitate normal movement patterns until independent control of the body is achieved. They help people to access movement by becoming more aware of how they move. Emma has had extensive post graduate training in the principles of normal movement and how it is affected by damage to the brain and spinal cord. She has applied, refined and taught these principles over many years. If you would like to know more, or think that Emma might be able to help you or a relative with any neurological condition, please get in touch with her.

Street Organ & Town Crier Festival Saturday 7th September 9.30am to 3.30pm

Banbury Town Centre The Street Organ Festival and Town Criers Competition takes place the first Saturday in September. Over the last few years this event has grown in stature, colour and sound. Street Organ Grinders from all over the country are invited into Banbury to help collect money for a local worthy cause. The melodious sounds from their Street Organs can be heard around all corners of the town and their traditional Victorian type costumes bring a splash of colour to the town. As if not to be outdone around 26 Town Criers from the far corners of Great Britain and a few from overseas also take up stance in the town to cry about their own towns and a previously agreed given subject. Their magnificent flamboyant costumes – many accompanied by co-ordinated escorts – vie for attention from the crowds. Their cries are fairly judged by a panel made up of knowledgeable dignitaries. At the end of the day the two groups meet up for a Banbury Cake tea with the Town Mayor in the Town Hall to swap stories of the day and to catch up with friends old and new.

Wood burning remains one of the most environmentally friendly ways of heating individual rooms. Using wood as a fuel typically provides a 30 per cent saving on gas or oil equivalents, and it is carbon neutral. In addition, stoves are up to five times more efficient than an open fire. “We wanted to supply quality products and when we were awarded a Clearview dealership we were delighted,” says Simon Attfield the owner of Iron and Wood. “All stoves are not the same and Clearview have gained a reputation for efficiency, ease of use, build quality and their legendary clear view of the flames.”

MISTY VIEWS ANY LONGER?

Don’t replace, save money and repair!

Repairing fogged windows rather than replacing them is not only the green option, it will save you money and restore the look of your double-glazing. A combination of atmoshpheric pressure and sunlight together can be blamed for causing moisture to seep through tiny gaps in your double-glazing, (which explains why the majority of misted windows can be found on the sunny side of a property). The other side to this problem is that misted windows do not give you the insulation that they have become famous for. Thanks to a innovative breakthrough in double-glazing repairs, eliminating the mist from your windows for the fraction of the price, giving them the same clearness as the day they were installed. You can save hundreds or even thousands of pounds by having your glazing repaired. Not only is it cheaper but it is also quick – units can be repaired in about an hour without hazzle or mess. Sometimes a window may be damaged beyond repair by misting and so it’s important to have your windows assessed by an expert before deciding upon treatment. If we cannot repair the unit(s) we can replace them. Call MJB Glazing 07899 047450 to book a free assessment and you could be looking through clear windows within weeks.

CLEANING OVENS so you have time for

BETTER THINGS

Business partners John Klavas and Ian Duckworth run their business as part of the successful Cookerburra Oven Cleaning franchise Being part of a franchise allows us to provide a local service to both domestic and commercial customers whilst having the reassuring support from a national network, it also allows us to guarantee our customers receive the highest level of service.

What we do

Many of our customers have never had their oven professionally cleaned before and are understandably unsure as to what to expect. We offer an unrivalled service that will transform your oven, range or AGA back to near showroom condition in around 2 hours. When we visit your home we will ensure we take great care to protect your floors and work surfaces before removing the oven doors and stripping the oven of all removable parts. These are then transferred to our van and a heated tank of our own brand solutions to soak whilst we tackle the inside of the oven. We will leave no mess in your kitchen and the solutions we

use have been specifically developed to leave no smell. Once cleaning is complete we will reassemble your oven and tidy your kitchen before presenting the finished job to you.

Why choose Cookerburra? 1) We are the longest established professional oven cleaning service in the UK 2) We have 20 years’ experience providing services to both domestic and commercial customers 3) Our highly skilled and experienced technicians are able to clean any make and model of oven 4) Our technicians are also able to clean a wide variety of other appliances such as microwaves, canopies, extractors and even barbeques 5) We guarantee our results 6) 100% of customers rated our services as very good or excellent and would recommend us to family and friends For more information or to book an appointment why not give us a call on 01295 277789 or visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/cookerburra.oxfordshire.
