"Top London Osteopath"
(April 2001 - The Evening Standard)
for musculo-skeletal injuries such as:
This London Osteopath, has been based at Belgrave Medical Centre in Belgravia for the last seventeen years, providing Osteopathy for the communities of Belgravia, Pimlico, Chelsea and Westminster.
Piers specializes in rehabilitation of long term back and neck injuries and treatment of sports injuries through hands on treatment, exercise, gait analysis and postural advice.
"I see a lot of pregnant women with various aches into their backs and have a special bolster that allows them to lie on their front without any pressure on their "bumps".
I also perform the Epley manoeuvre on people with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo(BPPV) which helps dislodge the crystals in the inner ear that cause this condition".
For many years he also worked at a sports club in South West London treating people with a variety of sports injuries such as shoulder pain or frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, knee aches, ankle sprains, achilles tendonitis and muscular strains.
LocationPiers Spencer's main osteopathy clinic: Belgrave Medical Centre is in Pimlico Road, Belgravia, SW1, within easy reach of Chelsea, Knightsbridge, Pimlico, Victoria and Westminster.
Pimlico Road is famous for its antique shops and now hosts a Farmers Market on Saturdays.
Osteopathic treatmentI practice gentle but effective manipulation of the spine and connective tissues to help improve flexibility and stimulate the body to heal itself. To successfully resolve long term musculoskeletal pain I give advice to help improve posture and gait. I show appropriate core stability exercises to improve stability where in the body it is needed. Balance is an often neglected skill and the cause of many injuries so via a series of exercises I will show you how to improve your balance skills so that wobbly paving stones will no longer be a hazard to fear!
"Why does my back/neck hurt?"Our bodies did not evolve for sitting, but most of us spend a considerable time doing just that, whether in front of a computer, whilst driving, or relaxing in a sofa. Prolonged static slouching creates a weakness in the muscles that support the spine. These (postural) muscles lengthen and atrophy whilst the joints are forced into (outer-range) positions that over time accelerate degenerative changes. Eventually this may cause aches and pains in the joints. Joint pain is often felt as an ache, or bruised sensation, in the muscles that act on that joint. Discomfort in the joints may also set up protective muscle guarding that can contribute to symptoms of pain and stiffness. Piers focuses on finding the faulty movement and posture patterns that allow an injury to occur, then corrects it with treatment, advice on stabilising exercises and posture to aid lasting recovery from injuries.
