How often do I hear patients – particularly those with neck and shoulder pain or headaches – blame their problem on the stress they are under in their lives? And it’s true. When we are stressed, anxious, cold or otherwise tense, our muscles respond by tightening up and this is an extremely common cause of neck pain and headaches. Our lives these days seem riddled with things specifically designed to keep us worked-up, whether it’s family troubles, money worries or just some irritating person at work. And there’s no getting away from it – we are increasingly unable to take time out for ourselves, thanks to the presence of technology which will beep, buzz and generally jump up and down in front of us until we answer whatever minutiae it has decided requires our attention.
But there are ways we can help ourselves, and here are just a few:
5 Dyas Close
Monday: 09:00 – 13:00, 17:00-19:00
Tuesday: 09:00 – 13:00, 17:00-19:00
Wednesday: 09:00 – 13:00
Thursday: 14:00 – 19:00
Friday: 09:00 – 17:00
Top tip: Once you arrive on Dyas Close, your satnav may tell you to bear left to find number 5…Ignore it! Continue straight on down to the bottom, and there is a shared driveway that disappears off to the RIGHT. The clinic is the middle one of the three houses on that driveway – there is usually a swing-sign outside, and the spine hanging in the front window is a give-away!
