Linda Canning B.Ost.
Linda qualified from the British School of Osteopathy, London in 2007 and has been working in the Glasgow area ever since:
‘I have always been fascinated by anatomy and physiology, especially the biomechanics of the body, and its amazing ability to cope with the stresses and strains of daily life. The body however has only a finite reservoir of ability to cope with these stresses and sometimes compensatory adaptations break down and pain ensues. Everyone’s reserves are different, and unless there has been a recent injury or pathological change in the body that can account for pain, there needs to be some “Sherlock” style investigation to figure out why one gets pain where they do. The reasons for this can be anything from postural habits, alignment issues or an old injury e.g. an ankle sprain that hasn’t had the attention it needs to support the leg/pelvis/lower back that sits on top of it! My job is to figure out why the pain is there, reduce the pain and prevent the pain from returning‘
Linda treats all the muscles and joints of the body, not just the lower back. She uses an array of techniques to help support the body’s ability to heal and speed up recovery. Massage, mobilisations and manipulations help to restore function and movement, reducing tension, aiding lymphatic drainage, reducing inflammation and therefore pain. Sometimes the more subtle “cranial” techniques are more appropriate and so she will also use these; always tailoring the treatment to the patients’ needs. She is also qualified in Medical Acupuncture, which can be very powerful in reducing pain, and always gives advice on exercise to rehabilitate and improve performance.
