I spend long periods of time at a computer and because of this and the stress of meeting tight deadlines, I experienced a lot of pain in my neck, shoulder and arm. I had little movement in my neck and was having difficulty turning my head. I was experiencing discomfort at night while sleeping. However, after only a few sessions with Jenny, things got sorted through massage and manipulation.
She gave me a series of exercises to do, which I still do, and recommended a pilates class. I haven't had any trouble since. I think anyone who spends a long period of time in front of a computer should see an osteopath regularly to ensure they are not doing any lasting damage due to stress and poor posture.

I had severe back pain for months if not years which I thaught were related to a bad move I made a while back, and that actually seemed to be due to my bad posture at work. In just a few sessions with Jenny, my situation improved drastically and I was then able to keep getting better through exercises that she gave me. I just started to climb again last week, which I couldn't do anymore for a while because of the pain, and everything went fine : no pain at all anymore!
