If you suffer from long-standing or recurrent lower back pain, groin pain or even ‘sciatica’ then this is a must for you! Very often these conditions can be caused by a problem in the alignment of your pelvic bones.
Correction these misalignments actually cures the long-standing or recurring conditions.
“Western medical acupuncture is the use of acupuncture following a medical diagnosis. It involves stimulating sensory nerves under the skin and in the muscles of the body.
This results in the body producing natural substances, such as pain-relieving endorphins. It’s likely that these naturally released substances are responsible for the beneficial effects experienced with acupuncture.” NHS Choices
A common side effect is that it helps you sleep!
He identified some related root causes
David helped me out with a minor injury, to get me back running and playing football sooner.
More importantly though, he identified some related root causes and gave me a programme of stretches and other exercises to help with future injury prevention.
Now back playing thanks to David
I thought my football career was over with an Achilles problem.

Do you suffer from long-standing Shoulder and Neck pain? The problem actually might not be your shoulder!
A detailed assessment will confirm whether it is actually your shoulder joint which to blame or whether it is caused by misalignments in the upper back. If it is your shoulder joint then an injection may help. If it’s not then we treat your upper spine vertebrae as there are several gentle techniques that can be applied to provide lasting relief. Either way, you feel much better!
Does your problem keep coming back?
If yes, then perhaps you have some underlying muscle weakness or imbalance that has not been addressed.
At David Steele Physiotherapy we offer a short course of Pilates Therapeutic Exercises that will improve your ‘core’ strength. These are carried out on a one-to-one basis to ensure that you derive maximum benefit as quickly as possible.

Acutely swollen joints are extremely painful and if nothing is helping what do you do?
A quick solution is to remove the excess fluid from inside the joint which relieves the pain almost immediately!
David is qualified to perform a joint aspiration. This involves inserting a sterile needle into the joint and ‘sucking’ out the fluid. This is carried out for you locally without having to make a long, painful journey in the car!
Some Common Complaints at Physiotherapist Motherwell
Back pain is a common problem that affects most people at some point in their life.
It may be triggered by bad posture while sitting or standing, bending awkwardly, or lifting incorrectly. It’s not generally caused by a serious condition.
You can get a painful or stiff neck if you sleep in an awkward position, use a computer for a prolonged period of time, or strain a muscle because of bad posture.
Anxiety and stress can also sometimes cause tension in your neck muscles, which can lead to pain in your neck.
Frozen Shoulder is a painful condition that reduces normal movement and can sometimes prevent movement in the shoulder altogether. The Rotator Cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint and help to keep it stable.
“Excellent First Class Treatment!”
“David has helped a number of our footballers of all ages recover and get back playing very quickly.
He is professional and respectful and I would highly recommend him.”Paul McNally
How David Steele Physiotherapy Helps…
David can perform gentle mobilising techniques that allow your spinal joints to start to move correctly which eases your pain and improves your movement.
He can also use Acupuncture or perhaps other manual skills to ease the tension and reduce pain.
He will then prescribe gentle exercises to help you to keep moving.
Gentle manual spinal mobilising techniques can make a dramatic difference to a stiff painful neck in a matter of only a few minutes!
Once moving it is important to keep moving and that is where doing the appropriate exercises is essential.
Acupuncture and electrotherapy can help with pain relief.
After a precise examination of your shoulder David will give you a very detailed explanation of the cause of your shoulder pain. If it is appropriate David may offer you the choice of Injection Therapy because many Shoulder Problems respond well to corticosteroid injections. You will also receive manual techniques to get your shoulder moving better.
