Natural treatments for pain in Falkirk and Stirling

Helen McCabe

“I was first introduced to osteopathy when my mother, who had suffered from a long-standing lower back problem, sought the assistance of an osteopath who successfully relieved the problem. It was through this that I developed my interest in osteopathy, which later influenced my decision to follow a career in the profession. I qualified at the world-renowned British College of Osteopathic Medicine in London in 2004.”

“Since qualifying, I have found the job both fascinating and rewarding. I have worked in various natural health care clinics across Central Scotland in associate and locum positions. This has given me invaluable experience not only from working with fellow osteopaths but from sharing knowledge with other healthcare practitioners as well. Outwith work I was a keen horse rider for many years and have been involved with the Pony Club and Riding for the Disabled Association. This has given me an insight not only into the common ‘aches and pains’ that can arise from the sport, whether they be from show jumping or mucking out, but also how horse riding can have a therapeutic role in certain conditions and disabilities."

Helen’s Naturopathic approach to Osteopathy means that in addition to addressing any structural imbalances in the body using a variety of osteopathic techniques. She can incorporate advice on nutrition, diet, exercise and lifestyle where appropriate to optimise overall health and function in the body. The underlying principle being that good health results from a balance between the structural, physiological and emotional aspects of a person.

Helen enjoys working with people of all ages and backgrounds. To date her youngest and oldest clients are a few days and 94 years respectively! She has over 10 years experience in treating a broad spectrum of both sports and work related injuries. Her areas of special interest are in pre/post natal care and osteopathy in the cranial field.

As a mother to Aiden (2008) and Connie (2012), Helen has taken a keen interest in providing care from “bump-to-baby” and is also delighted to support the charity "So Precious" (http://www.so-precious.co.uk/) which provides support for families in need of neonatal care in the Forth Valley.

It is hard to find a more friendly, professional and dedicated to wellness team than this. Helen and Dave have restored my youth...or at least my ability to move and enjoy playing with my son. I cannot thank you enough!

As a musician I live with the a lot of aches and pains. I've tried many many things over the years to feel better. David McCabe has changed my life and given me relief and freedom in my body that I'd given up hope of ever feeling. David and Helen are the nicest people you could meet but are also thoroughly professional and brilliant at what they do. I have recommended them to many of my friends and colleagues. Can't thank them enough. Back2Life Clinic is the best. Thank you David and Helen.

My life was on hold due to chronic back pain and I lost 4 years of my life waiting for the NHS to help/cure me. After a recommendation I visited the Back2Life clinic. After just 3 months I was able to work again and since then I finally got married and had a baby. The name says it all.... They really did help me Back2Life!

Very professional and welcoming. Took my 12 week baby as he was having problems 'winding'. After 2 sessions with Helen he is so much better - so much happier and I don't dread feeding times and endless hours of trying to wind. Highly recommend trying if you have a wee one with colicky symptoms.
