Manipulation – Is it good to have your joints clicked?
Everybody at some point in time has asked the question ‘Can cracking your knuckles give you arthritis or not?’ The simple answer is no, this research has been supported in a 2015 study (using real-time MRI images) at the University of Alberta, Canada to not be harmful or cause osteoarthritis from ‘knuckle cracking’.

I suffered a gym injury many years ago, which caused regular discomfort in my left shoulder. This has been exacerbated by the fact that my job involves sitting at a computer for long periods of time. I had thought that it was just something I would have to live with but was then advised to see an osteopath. I was treated by Nicolette Gygi and found the sessions extremely helpful. My shoulder was a bit tender after the treatment but after a couple of days I found that the pain was no longer there. I am so pleased as the pain has not returned since and I have never been without it with any period of time. I am confident that this was as a direct result of the treatment provided by Nicolette.

It’s fair to say that Claire has changed my life. For six years my daily ritual had managing pain in both achilles at its heart. As a runner this was both physically and spiritually hard. In less than a month Claire has ministered treatment to both mind and body that has removed this completely and evolved a whole new outlook. I will complete 3 half marathons in 3 weeks next Sunday! Thank you Claire. David Jackman
I first went to Claire for treatment during the London Olympic opening ceremony, where I was a professional dancer. I had had a hamstring injury for 5 years previously and it bothered me from time to time and it occurred during this time when Claire was around to help give treatment to the dancers and athletes. The first time she was able to tell me exactly what was wrong and give me a soothing massage and also some exercises to help strengthen the muscles around my injury. On my second appointment she used acupuncture to treat the problem and after only a few more sessions I could feel an enormous improvement! Over the 5 years or this injury and seeing over 4 different physiotherapists no other specialist had been able to make my leg feel this great again. I am so thankful to Claire for all she has done for me and should I ever have any problems again I will be straight back to Richmond Osteopaths for they are a friendly and professional team of specialists who could truly make your life an easier and less painful one! Thank you Claire Stephanie Furness
