Piers Spencer - Hampshire Osteopath
Piers moved to Bishops Waltham, an historic small town a few miles from Southampton on the edge of the South Downs in Hampshire in November 2015 and has taken over at Bishop's Waltham Osteopathic Clinic to provide a comprehensive treatment regime for the residents of Bishops Waltham, Swanmore, Waltham Chase, Durley, Curdridge, Botley, Southampton and numerous others in this part of Hampshire.
Here at Bishops Waltham Osteopathic Clinic we try to offer the best osteopathic treatment available for an accurate diagnosis, treatment, advice and exercises tailored to suit you and the condition you come to see us for.
Previously Piers was based at Belgrave Medical Centre in Belgravia for twenty one years, providing Osteopathy for the communities of Belgravia, Pimlico, Chelsea and Westminster. He still runs a clinic in Victoria Medical Centre on Wednesdays for his London patients.
Piers specialises 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 tendinopathy and muscular strains.
Piers Spencer runs clinics in two locations: Bishop's Waltham Osteopathic Clinic on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and Victoria Medical Centre in London on Wednesdays. The former is close to Winchester, Southampton and Portsmouth whilst the latter is handy for those in Pimlico, Victoria, Westminster and Belgravia.
The historic town of Bishop's Waltham was burnt to the ground in 1001 AD by the Danes but these days it is a thriving and popular destination on the edge of the South Downs whilst Tachbrook Street has had a Tachbrook Street Market for many years recently bolstered by a number of street food vendors.
The Osteopathy I practice is 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 musculo-skeletal pain advice is given 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.
