Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Patient: Woman 24 years
Occupation: Teacher
Pain: Can reach 5/10

Complaint: Abdominal Pain, diagnosed as IBS by GP. This pain is inconsistent, coming on at various times of day and night. It was found to be related to a poor diet.

There was also low back pain, mainly caused by pain referral from the gut.

This condition troubled this Lady, on and off, since her teens.

Treatment: Acupuncture of Trigger Points in the Abdomen made a huge difference. The pain cleared in 2 treatments.

The patient was advised to change to a Wheat Free Diet and improve her eating habits.

Prognosis: Very good, but if the patient does eat Wheat, her IBS symptoms return for a day or so.

David Drysdale has worked as an Osteopath in the West End of Glasgow since 1996. David combines a wide range of techniques when treating a patient, ranging from Osteopathic Manipulation, Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Nutrition and Exercise. Treatments are tailored for the Patient. It is understood that some people simply do not like osteopathic manipulation, while others like Deep Tissue Massage, or benefit from Cranio-Sacral Therapy. There are different ways of treating people who are in pain, and providing the treatment that works for you is very important. Osteopathy is well known for treating Headaches, Neck & Back Pain, but many other conditions such as migraines, frozen shoulder and arthritis can all respond well to good Osteopathic treatment.

Many Thanks…………….. Davy Drysdale
