What is a Slipped Disc &
What is Sciatica?

Causes of Slipped Disc and Sciatica

Not all slipped discs occur suddenly, ie from a lifting or twisting strain. In fact many arise slowly, usually from postural causes, starting off  as recurring low back pain. The peak age of slipped disc is about 45 years old.  If the disc slips out too far, it can hit the main nerve of the leg, the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is about the size of your own index finger.  By the time the disc has slipped, the forces will have progressed beyond muscle injury, ligament damage and sometimes joint strain. For this reason it is important to seek the help of an experienced Wimbledon osteopath, as there are many factors in diagnosis and treatment (please see below).

At the Living Centre Clinic in Raynes Park, we have been treating low back pain, slipped disc and sciatica successfully for over 30 years. Many patients in the Wimbledon, Raynes Park and Morden areas have avoided surgery as a result of our  in-house expertise. That said we work with doctors and surgeons in the SW19, SW20 and other areas, to offer something you can rely on.

What occurs in a Slipped Disc
And What is Sciatica?

The discs (3) are the jelly like pads which sit in between the bones of the spine. These bones are called vertebrae (4). Immediately behind the disc is the spinal cord (1).  On each side of the spine are the delicate nerves (2) which supply your body.

What occurs in a Slipped Disc
And What is Sciatica?

When a disc slips it can sometimes press on a nerve (5). Actually, the disc oozes out, it does not really slip. There are several stages of a slipped disc. The following, from mild to severe, are all termed “slipped disc”. Bulging disc, herniated disc, prolapsed disc, sequestrated disc. Any of these can press on a nerve causing pain. This can cause pain in the buttock, hip, groin, thigh, leg, ankle or foot. Sciatica arises when pain travels down the leg. This can be with numbness, pins and needles, or in some cases sensations of hot/cold or deep aching in the buttock, leg or foot. A large slipped disc causing sciatica can be accompanied with large amounts of muscle spam in the back, difficulty turning in bed, sitting, driving or even standing sometimes. Occasionally sciatica can result in little or no back pain at all –  and you may only suffer leg pain or even just foot pain and nothing else! Incredible.

Diagnosis & Treatment

There are delicate structures next to a disc which can become damaged in back pain. Also when a disc slips it is important to be aware what sort of disc damage you have (see above paragraph) as this will denote what you are or are not able to do during your recovery. Further, the aim is to avoid additional slippage which could result in deeper entrapment of nerves or tissues, which in some cases may only respond to spinal decompression surgery. As mentioned the Living Centre Clinic’s osteopathic team have helped many people avoid back surgery and other types of surgery too. Our treatments are approved by doctors.

Our qualified osteopaths are trained to reliably detect slipped discs, sciatica and trapped nerves. Obtaining an accurate diagnosis is key to successful treatment and management. As such the Living Centre Clinic in Raynes Park Wimbledon, is trusted by thousands of our patients who return back to health swiftly. This is due in part to the highly specialised treatment couches we use. These couches gently help ease the pain of trapped nerves, slipped discs, bad backs and arthritis of the spine. Whilst highly specialised, they are as yet, not widely available in the majority of other SW London osteopathic clinics.  The Living Centre Clinic is equipped with two of these articulated beds.

Treatments include a full spinal examination, diagnosis and gentle* hands-on massage-style, treatment.  Our osteopaths are trained in a variety of skills including soft-tissue massage, cranial osteopathy, deep tissue release, and spinal manipulation, so you can be sure your will receive the approach that’s best for your condition. Exercises are emailed to your PC or smart phone to help you with posture and recovery. Additionally we provide email and phone support for after hour care and our friendly reception service is open 8am – 9pm daily (Saturday to 6pm).

osteopathy

Back pain treatments are available 6 days a week, from 7.30am to 9.00pm weekdays and Saturday 8am – 6pm.
Emergency appointments are usually seen the same day, as the clinic has a team of 4 experienced osteopaths.
Treatment Fees are competitive.

* Generally we avoid harsh manipulation such as “bone cracking” unless specifically requested, ie for a sports injury treatment etc.

Healing – a 3 step process

 

The first step is to target pain-relief by reducing muscle spam, tenderness and inflammation. Typically you will notice an improvement on your first visit.

Next step is to address the cause of the pain. Correctly done, this helps to create stability around the injured area and prevent re-injury.

Lastly we provide you with exercises and advice so you can help in your own healing. This includes the correct use of hot and cold packs, anti-inflammatory medicines, pain killers and natural alternatives.

Pain relief is our specialist subject and every clinician undergoes hours of post graduate training each year. The osteopathic pain relief team operate a policy of knowledge and skill sharing. This provides you with additional security that you are receiving the best care.

I initially went to see Marta (osteopath) with a specific back injury, and have continued to see her for two years now... with other ailments and general screenings. Her ability to diagnose subtle issues you didn't know were there, work quickly to resolve them, and provide effective exercises is incredibly impressive!read more

I woke up in a great deal of pain and in desperation I booked a Sports Massage with Magda, it was definitely the right... decision. Not only was the massage excellent but the care and kindness she showed me was just wonderful. In her professional opinion, she felt that I needed osteopathic treatment and took the time to speak to her colleague, Mr Jamooji, about my case. She went the extra mile for me and I shall definitely be returning to see her again. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you Magda.read more

Ive been having a bad back and neck for years and years. Jen helped me yesterday get on the road to healing my problem... and Im amazed by her expertise and abilities. I feel very happy and confident that with her help I will sort my back problems out for good. She recommended exercises that I didnt know would help, identified the root of the problem and so I understand more clearly how I can help my body and get the core strength I need to alleviate my back issues. Thank you so much, worth every penny! Edit to this review... several months later my back and neck are so much better. Finally getting back to normal with my health (!:read more

We affectionately call Vispi the “baby whisperer”. He’s been able to connect the dots between what happened to our... babies during their birth, and what’s happening to babies post-birth (feeding issues / discomfort / reflux symptoms etc). He really understands babies and hence knows how to treat them to improve their pain / symptoms / discomfort. We’ve had brilliant results with 2x children and couldn’t recommend Vispi, and his team, more.read more

I cannot recommend Mr Jamooji highly enough. No other Osteopath comes even close to his expertise or experience. I... have seen a large number of Osteopaths as well as other healthcare professionals since i started suffering from chronic back pain 15+ years ago. My back was in such bad shape that I was advised by 3 separate top consultants that I absolutely required surgery. Mr Jamooji is the best Osteopath that I have come across and helpe me to avoid surgery but also to get back to health.read more

I had the most wonderful massage from Magda on a very gloomy day. My shoulders were aching and it was drizzling.... However, after my massage I felt fantastic. Calming music was playing in the background and a pleasantly warm room, resulting in a calming atmosphere which took all my cares and worries away along with my aching shoulders! I can certainly recommend Magda for a professional and friendly approach who will provide the best massage. A guaranteed feel good factor. Thank you Magda.read more

Our little boy is now 8 months and has been seeing Mr Jamooji since he was roughly 5 months old. There were various... concerns we had, a lot of crying, sickness/reflux, caesarean birth. Mr Jamooji has incredible knowledge of babies and why they may be uncomfortable which when explained is fascinating to begin to understand. Happy to say our little one is thriving and Mr Jamooji's work has been a tremendous help in his being a happy, energetic little boy. I would thoroughly recommend parents to take their little ones for a visit.read more

Great osteopath. Was training for the ride 100 and had a persistent pain in my back. Tried a physio, chiropractic... clinic local to me but no joy. 2 visits to Mr Jamooji and my back problem resolved. He really got to the source of the pain quickly, told me what to do at home and fixed me up so that i left the clinic feeling taller and pain free. How do you thank someone that does that for you? Amazing hands. Very professional. A great place to get cured.read more

I had been suffering with shoulder and arm pain for some time, which was impacting my work and personal life and having... tried many physiotherapists, I could not find any relief. A friend recommended Vispi and from the very beginning I knew I was on the right path. He listened with great kindness and compassion, gave very sound and practical advice and his treatments made a difference from the very start reducing the pain and discomfort substantially and allowing me to return to normal. And months later, when my back decided to act up, again I knew I was in safe hands. Vispi is much more than a great osteopath, he truly wants you to improve and is incredibly positive and motivated to get you back to your normal way of life. I cannot recommend him highly enough.read more
