Natural treatments for pain in Falkirk and Stirling

Lorraine Coates

My journey to being an osteopath has been an interesting one.  Being a curious child I was always interested in science and nature, which led me on to a Biotechnology degree at the University of Abertay, Dundee.  After two years of postgraduate laboratory work I realised I needed a more human centred career, and took a break to travel to Australia. 

I then met my future husband who convinced me to come and live in London with him when we returned.  The time was right to take a new direction, and I trained as a massage therapist and set up my own business Urban Remedies, where I provided an onsite massage service for businesses, and a holistic treatment service in a London Hotel.  Then along came my 2 children and I was lucky enough to be a stay-at-home mum during their younger years. 

When my youngest was ready for nursery, I had a chance to rethink my future.  I loved massage and the hands-on approach, but it did not satisfy my scientific curiosity.  After being treated by an osteopath for some postnatal aches and pains, and seeing the remarkable effect it had on my husband with his bad back, it seemed the obvious, perfect career path for me.   I did a Masters degree at the British School of Osteopathy in London.

I am excited about relocating my family back home to Scotland, and establishing myself as a friendly; effective; and caring osteopath in the local community.

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.

Stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading

online9

Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:

  • shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
  • one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
  • any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
  • travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home

Important

These 4 reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household.

In response to current guidance, Helen and David have taken the difficult decision to temporarily cease face to face consultations at Back2Life Clinics as of 9 am on Monday 23 March 2020.

We will instead be offering online services using video calls. These have proved invaluable to patients benefitting from diagnosis, reassurance, lifestyle and exercise advice with personalised exercise sheets delivered via email.

In taking this decision, we have weighed up the benefit of face to face consultations versus the risk of increasing spread of coronavirus. Our priority is the wellbeing of our patients, staff and the wider community. We anticipate that we will continue to deliver high-quality care for people with aches, pains and stiffness.
