This page contains a growing library of guides that I created to help my readers temporarily alleviate the most common physiological pains. However, I cannot stress enough that there is no substitute for having a registered osteopath check your current condition. Performing osteopathic manipulation on your own is highly discouraged. You might do more harm than good to yourself or to a person who needs proper osteopathic treatment. These guides are never meant to substitute actual assessment and treatment from an expert. If you’re looking for a good osteopath in Hong Kong, you may use the contact form on this website to book me for consultation.
Reduce Neck Pain
Most of the patients that I help suffer from neck pain. At least 2 out of 3 people will experience this problem in a lifetime. Many don’t realize that neck pain is an avoidable experience if they just maintain proper posture and do several simple exercises to keep their neck from being strained. In this guide, I discussed the several causes of neck pain, how to diagnose the cause, and how to relieve the pain.
Low Back Pain
One out of three people will experience low back pain in a lifetime so we can say that this is a common problem especially for people who are in 9-5 office work or are engaged in strenuous sports and activities. In this guide, I would help you identify the cause of your low back pain, its symptoms, treatment, and other factors about your condition.
Many shoulder conditions are mistakenly labelled as frozen shoulder and managed incorrectly. True frozen shoulder/adhesive capsulitis is a painful limiting condition of the shoulder which unfortunately takes many months to recover. With the help of osteopathic treatment and manipulation, the healing process can be significantly sped up. In this guide, I discussed the pointers in determining if you have a frozen shoulder. I also gave an overview of the treatment that you will need for this condition.
Using Foam Roller to Reduce Pain
Foam Roller is an underrated tool in reducing muscle pains. In this guide, I provided a step by step process in using a foam roller to address regular muscle pains, especially after a long strenuous activity. I also included pictures of myself demonstrating the use of foam roller. Check it out.
