Welcome To The Mayfair Clinic
We are driven to providing our patients with the best osteopathic treatment available for patients suffering from neck pain, back pain & sciatica, amongst other conditions.
When you visit The Mayfair Clinic, at our Cavendish Square location, you will likely be treated using one or more of our advanced treatment technologies. No matter how acute or chronic, our goal is to find the best treatment or combination of treatment technologies to give you the best recovery possible. Doing this ensures the best possible results for our patients and is something unique to our clinic.
Your treatment with us will be tailored to the demands of your personal condition & will likely evolve over time. Conditions that cause back pain are often more complicated. By evolving our treatment approach as your pain begins to resolve, we can drive your recovery more effectively than other less sophisticated & more common forms of osteopathy or manual treatment in general.
Symptoms & Conditions
Approximately 80% of the population will suffer back pain. Given its prevalence, it’s not surprising that the overwhelming majority of the patients we see are suffering from a condition that is giving them back pain, such as sciatica.
The Office for National Statistics showed in 2015/16 that the longer someone is off with back pain, the more difficulty they are likely to have in returning to work. Once more they are more likely to develop secondary conditions like depression. Early intervention is so important.
We have great success in treating conditions causing neck or back pain. So for more information on conditions visit our what we treat page or call us to speak about your symptoms.
Spinal Remodelling In Action
Patients varying degrees of back pain visit us, however, we do frequently see cases of long-standing or recurring back pain accompanied by significant spine misalignment. Up until this point misalignment is usually unidentified, but once measured and understood it provides us with a unique insight into deeper causes of the problem. In this example we won’t go into the treatment we did for the patient’s back pain, but instead explain the relevance of the patient’s spinal alignment in the context of their back pain, and bulging discs.
In the case study below, the patient was suffering from severe lower back pain. An MRI showed bulging discs and canal stenosis, and surgery was one of the primary treatments recommended. The patient’s pain was previously dismissed and misdiagnosed as muscle spasm, leaving the patient struggling with little assistance and having to find another way to deal with their recurrent back pain.
Below are before and after images taken independently, to validate measurable structural change the patient received at The Mayfair Clinic.
Restoring a normal lordosis in a lumbar spine with disc injuries.
Reduction of the natural lordosis (curve) by over 50% causes substantially more compression to the injured discs in the lower back which prevents the healing process effectively occurring. This is something we frequently observe in patients with herniated discs, slipped discs and sciatica.
By restoring the patient’s lumbar curve (lordosis) through a healthy combination of treatment and home-based rehabilitation, the patient’s spine is much safer, more balanced and better able to deal with the everyday stresses of life that frequently cause patients with herniated discs, sciatica or disc bulges to reoccur.
Although the patient’s symptoms improved as a result of treatment within a matter of weeks, the diligent approach to rehabilitation has allowed him to make real and measured improvement in the spine and muscles that support it. We always encourage our patients to continue their rehabilitation in spite of symptoms being absent, as doing so results in measurable long term benefits like this!
An Expert Understanding Of Your Spine
Having a significant level of expertise around the spine and its structure, the clinic offers all patients the opportunity, where appropriate, to get a full spinal analysis done. The Mayfair Clinic has gone to great lengths to ensure the provision of the very best osteopathic services for our patients. We offer the ability to get spinal scans done in partnership with imaging centers on our doorstep. Thanks to such an exclusive relationship, we are normally able to get scans done for our patients on the same day.
This streamlined process allows Images to be taken swiftly and reported back to us for our in-depth biomechanical analysis. This service is of vital importance for patients suffering from back or neck pain, helping us identify the root cause of their pain and how to treat this most effectively.
This approach is particularly helpful if you are someone suffering from slipped discs or herniated/bulging discs, but have no real understanding of why it isn’t recovering. Understanding your spine properly frequently reveals the answers to health & recovery!
Once the injury has recovered and pain reduced, we can recommend a comprehensive set of activities, stretches, and exercises tailored to your spine and its strengths and weaknesses. This is vitally important when working with any patient towards long-term health and wellbeing that this is provided.
