As an academic with poor posture,  I’ve learned a lot of things. A handy one is to make sure you know a good osteopath!

In training/coaching you can just overdo it and pick up an injury. I recommend the clinic to my students and friends.

Back pain is one of the largest complaints to Deansgate Osteopathic Clinic, in fact the treatment of back pain in Bolton follows the epidemic proportions in the western world. Research shows that 60% of the UK’s population will suffer from it at some stage during their lives. Back pain responds well to osteopathic treatment – reducing pain and restoring mobility and quality of life. We also recommend the Bacrac to help manage your pain.


Headaches we’ve all had one at some point, there very common and because they happen regularly, often people refer to them as “just a normal headache” or commonly a “tension headache”. They feel like a constant ache that affects both sides of the head, often described as a tight band is stretched around it. Shoulder pain such as Frozen Shoulder can impact tension headaches with postural changes and reduced movement.


Sciatica refers to an irritation of the sciatic nerve, the sciatic nerve comes from the lumbar and sacrum then down the legs. An irritation to the sciatic nerve can commonly give you backpain, however sciatic irritation can give rise to a multitude of symptoms, such as pain along the back of the leg, pins and needles or even weakness. Sciatica itself is not a diagnosis but an irritation to the sciatic nerve.


Sudden pain in one of the knees is usually the result of overusing the knee or injuring it. In many cases, you don’t need to see your GP. The knee joint is particularly vulnerable to damage and pain because it takes the full weight of your body and any extra force when you run or jump. You’re more likely to experience knee pain as you get older, and people who are overweight or do lots of sports have a higher risk of damaging their knees. We may also assess with a Gait Scan Analysis.


Here at Deansgate Osteopathic Clinic our sport injury therapists offer sound advice, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation to get you fit and back loving the sports you enjoy. Treatment is provided by osteopaths/physiotherapists who work in the clinic and also involved in the amateur, professional fields of sports with experienced to help you get fit. See your physio in Bolton today to get back moving even for conditions like Plantar Fasciitis.



Plantar Fasciitis A very painful condition of the foot with pain felt intensely underneath. Most noted when taking the first steps in the morning, or after prolonged periods of sitting. The condition can prevent you from any major weight bearing such as walking, running.

What people with back pain need to know about Sciatica... When experiencing back pain, it is often diagnosed as Sciatica, this is not a diagnosis itself more a sign that the nerve is irritated, and something is causing this irritation. Sciatic irritation is associated...

  • 5 star review  I can't recommend Francis enough, after months of pain and discomfort just three sessions with him I am so much better, I am following his advice and I'm confident that I will keep improving. Thank you Francis.

    thumb Jean Wolstencroft
  • 5 star review  I cannot recommend Vlad enough. Not only is he an excellent physician, he is also a great teacher who has helped me to understand the variety of factors contributing to my injury. He does this in a manner that is both empathetic and humorous. Upon leaving the clinic I always feel more positive and stress free.

    thumb Sam Broadley
  • 5 star review  Had a 30 minute deep tissue massage for a sore back, the treatment did wonders and feeling a lot better. Will definitely return for further treatment, very competitive prices too considering they're probably the most qualified masseuses i have come across.

    thumb Nathan Harney
  • 5 star review  Brilliant, I have only been twice however the sessions had an amazing effect on me, the staff are friendly making you feel at ease and comfortable, I struggle with sciatica and general back problems and will always go back to them for help. Thank you

    thumb Philippa Vickers
  • 5 star review  I visited Francis after being diagnosed with SPD/PGP at 28 weeks pregnant, following a few weeks of unsuccessful attempts (recommended by a midwife and physio) to relieve the pain associated with this. I was in agony most of the day and night which was exasperated further by already having two young children. Francis suggested I may have been misdiagnosed with SPD and after taking a very detailed medical history, he treated me based on his own experienced opinion. The treatment was painless and felt quite therapeutic. Within a day or two my pain had reduced by 80-90%, I couldn’t believe it! I am no longer taking strong pain medication, my mobility has greatly improved, I am now sleeping much more comfortably and now feel I can actually start to enjoy the last few weeks of my pregnancy and this time with my other two children. I have recommended Francis to many of my friends already and also given his card to my pregnancy yoga teacher as a point of reference for the many pregnant women she sees who may be struggling with similar symptoms. Thank you, Francis! Hannah

  • 5 star review  Francis was great. He has sorted my slipped disc a few years ago. He gave me exercises to do that meant I could reduce the treatment needed and increase my mobility. Now sorting my shoulder. Problem RSI.

    thumb Mark Arrowsmith
  • 5 star review  Excellent service and sports massage! Had knots in my back for a while, Susan talked me through the medical reasoning throughout, was very chatty and put me at ease! Would recommend to anyone, all knots have gone and feel much better!

    thumb Nilufar Patel
  • 5 star review  Fantastic professional treatments. Love the booking appointments online option. Friendly, dedicated staff would recommend 100%.

    thumb Jill Farrimond
  • 5 star review  Fantastic very professional and felt comfortable throughout my treatments. I have had back problems for a long time and since I have been going to see Francis I have been very happy. I do recommend stretches by Francis at home plus a treatment every 4-8 weeks depending on my lifestyle and I have not had as many problems with my back anymore. Unlike other places I have been that just do stretches with you and use an ultrasound machine, Francis is very hands on and you feel like you had a good treatment. I would highly recommend this clinic

  • 5 star review  Over did it in the gym with dead lifts which caused me lower back pain and difficulty moving round. I went for a sports massage with Gary who fixed it in one session. Excellent work Thanks Gary!
