Back problems no more

"I was recommended to Sharon at Greenlane Osteopathy by a friend after years of back problems. I had seen numerous physiotherapists, chiropractors and tried self-management classes such as yoga and pilates. Nothing had worked and I could barely walk the first time I saw her. She spent a good hour with me and wouldn’t let me leave until I could stand up straight and walk out of there, I really felt like she cared and I wasn’t just another number on her books.  A couple of follow-up appointments and I’ve never been better.  She’s been a life saver and I’m loving being able to enjoy life again with my kids without worrying about my back.  Thanks Sharon!"

Migraine relief has made all the difference

Phillipa Webb came to Greenlane Osteopathy after living with a life of migraine pain. It is very rewarding to give her relief from these debilitating headaches and reduce the episodes that occur. This is her story in her words. Sharon Hosking, Greenlane Osteopathy.

I am a 47 year old woman and have suffered from debilitating migraines my entire life. Every few months or so I go through several days in a row where I go to sleep feeling fine but wake in the morning with a pounding headache down one side which stretches into my neck and shoulder. There is no medication that can touch it and life is pretty miserable during those episodes.

My GP suggested that I see Sharon at Greenlane Osteopathy. I was a bit sceptical as I wasn't really sure what osteopathy was, but I definitely needed to try something new. After several days of waking up to head, neck and shoulder pain, one treatment from Sharon and the pain was gone, replaced by a sensation of looseness through my neck and shoulder and a general feeling of relief and euphoria that something had finally worked.

Although I still suffer from these episodes, I now know that there is relief to be had by going to see Sharon.

Sharon is very friendly and ensures that you know what is happening and why throughout the treatment. She gladly answers any questions that I ask her and is obviously passionate about her profession. I have recommended her services to friends, family and workmates who have also experienced positive results.

Years of terrible headaches and migraines gone in 8 weeks

When Cameron Chittock came to Greenlane Osteopathy, he’d been living with chronic headaches and was no longer able to focus on his work. After a series of treatments we achieved some fantastic results and Cameron is enjoying pain-free living. This is his story in his words. Sharon Hosking, Greenlane Osteopathy.

For many years I’d been suffering from terrible headaches, often on a daily basis. It was so bad that it began to affect my ability to work. My doctor had prescribed a number of powerful drugs to help me cope with the pounding pain in my head, but nothing seemed to really work and nothing the doctor gave me was able to stop the headaches from coming back. Not only that but the drugs left me feeling washed out and unable to concentrate.

As an animation director and producer I needed to focus on my work and deal with multiple challenges at once. The headaches meant I just wasn’t able to do this. I also found myself having to take time off work which I could not afford to do.

I was referred to Sharon at Greenlane Osteopathy by a friend who suffered from the same problem. Sharon was very understanding about how debilitating it can be suffering from migraine headaches and was able to offer treatment as well as practical advice about how to alter my lifestyle and working environment to reduce potential problems that may have been contributing to my condition.

Much to my delight Sharon was able to get rid of the headaches I was suffering from and on a long term basis. After eight weeks of therapy I was able to live a normal life for the first time in many, many years. I can now wake up in the morning and not worry about how I am going to get through another day with a sore head.

It was a life changing experience for me and I am very grateful to Sharon for what she has done for me. If you are suffering from migraine headaches I would recommend you visit Greenlane Osteopathy for treatment.

A happy ending to a young boy's nightmares

When Suzy Hansen brought her son to Greenlane Osteopathy, it was to try and alleviate knee problems he had been experiencing. But during the initial treatment, Suzy also mentioned that her son had been having a lot of trouble sleeping – which was very of out of character for a child who normally ‘slept like a log’. This is her story in her own words. Sharon Hosking, Greenlane Osteopathy.

Sharon did wonders for my son. He had been waking in the night with nightmares for weeks following a burglary. In all honesty, seeking the help of an osteopath wouldn’t have been on my radar, but after talking it through with Sharon I decided to give it a go.

And the results, well, they were nothing short of staggering. After just one session with Sharon, my boy had a miraculous turn around with the nightmares ending immediately. Plus we all got some much needed sleep back!

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sharon at Greenlane Osteopathy, she has a wonderful natural ability with children and her treatments really do work.
