Mike Hammond Do BSc Sciatic pain, headaches & sports injuries

Sciatic pain

The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in your body.

There is one in each leg which runs from your lower back to your foot. Sciatic pain is can be along the distribution of the nerve. Sciatica can be caused by problems within the spine. It may also be accompanied by pins and needles.

This can be down to nerve root irritation or compression. Osteopathy can help ease your symptoms, if they are the result of mechanical dysfunction.


There are many causes of headaches, one of which can be caused by mechanical neck joint dysfunction. I can assess the joints in your neck to help detect any problems.

I will advise you on how to reduce your symptoms, to help you manage your headaches.

Sports injuries

Osteopathy can help treat sports injuries. In assessing your whole body, not just the site of the symptoms, I can look at how dysfunctions in other parts of your body can affect the site of your injury. Problems in other parts of your musculo-skeletal system can affect the area of your symptom.
