Drysdale Osteopathy Glasgow

I found David online after being referred to the dental hospital for TMJ Disorder. As the waiting time is several months, I needed to find some immediate pain relief. I had strong painkillers and physio without success. After the first treatment with David, I felt an enormous difference. He is basically a magician! Laser treatment and acupuncture combined with massage and neck manipulation resulted in a total transformation. Can’t recommend him highly enough.

Trapped Nerves

"A Trapped Nerve" is a frequent description of the pain a person is experiencing. 

Although nerves can become trapped, the pain is most likely to be coming from a Trigger Point.

With a genuine "Trapped Nerve" there is usually Numbness, Pins & Needles and even Weakness in the affected limb.

When a nerve does become trapped, there are several places that this can occur.

In the upper limb: the neck, shoulder, elbow and wrist are areas where this can happen. Giving rise to conditions like thoracic outlet syndrome and carpal tunnel.

Trapped Nerve, Piriformis Syndrome, Carpal Tunnel, Trigger Points, OsteopathyIn the lower limb: the lower back, the piriformis muscle in the buttock, and the foot are also areas where a nerve can become trapped.

The piriformis muscle gives rise to piriformis syndrome, which is often diagnosed as sciatica.

Morton's neuroma is a condition where a nerve is trapped between the long bones of the foot.

There are various methods of treating nerve entrapments, some respond well to osteopathy, while others may require medical treatment.
