So a big thank you to all my current and past patients for your support.
All it leaves me to do is to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and happy, healthy New Year. I look forward to more successful treatments and happy patients in 2010!!
The manual therapies reviewed were spinal manipulation, spinal mobilisation and massage. Collectively these are all manual therapy. Mobilisation and massage are performed by a wide variety of practitioners. Manipulation can be performed by chiropractors and osteopaths, as well as by doctors and physiotherapists who have undergone specialist postgraduate training in manipulation.
A team at King's College London found public understanding of basic anatomy has not improved since a similar survey was conducted 40 years ago. Less than 50% of the more than 700 people surveyed could correctly place the heart, BMC Family Practice says.Under one-third could place the lungs in their correct location, but more than 85% got the intestines right.
There are concerns that a poor grasp of anatomy could potentially compromise patient care.
I have a huge thank you to say to you for giving me the confidence to allow someone to treat me for my back problem. Without you I would not be where I am today. I am still being treated for my back problem at an oesteopath in Belper but am down to monthly treatments now. Thanks for your support. If I lived closer to Nottingham I would still be making appointments with you today.Without sounding overly sentimental, this kind of comment really does make it all worthwhile - Thank you.
