Pain solutions

Are you one of the 10 million people in England who are affected by muscle, joint and bone pain? Osteoarthritis, back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, knee pain – they are all common.

At Pain Puzzle people like you are helped to understand their pain. Pain puzzle patients achieve their goals – to sit more comfortably, get back to gardening, return to sport, get up and down from the floor or feel more flexible.


Deborah’s osteopathic care for people in pain involves learning about your pain problem, hands on treatment to reduce sensitivity, exercise to improve strength and flexibility, reducing stress, improving sleep, or improving general well-being – depending on what your puzzle involves.

Why don’t you make an appointment and I can help you find the solutions you are searching for.

Supporting well-being

Perhaps you are not in pain but worried and well. If you have concerns about your future health and well-being we can support you. The reality is prevention is better than cure. Therefore, we want to help you to invest time in promoting your good health.

Preventative care

Maybe you want support and advice about exercise- someone to show you what to do or perhaps you are wondering how to start improving your well-being. Being well involves the whole person – physical, mental and spiritual. It’s well recognised that sleep, stress, diet, exercise, mental health, loneliness are all areas where small changes can make a significant improvement in your health. For this reason, pain puzzle offers personalised advice, support, and encouragement to help you to improve your well-being.

  • "Last evening all my muscles were really cross but it felt like a “responding to a good talking to” sort of cross!  This morning I have tried out the suggestion of walking down the top stairs putting both feet on each step and just doing the last two “normally”- and it worked!  The next time I did FOUR steps normally, and I have just walked down ALL the way, and ours are quite steep - all normally!!  I’m sure it’s the “psychology” - when I was trying to do the first one or two normally I reckon my brain was saying “a lot of stairs to go yet, and it hurts already, how can I do this” but slowly doing the first part, without hurting much and then thinking “nearly there, I can do this” and of course it feels “safer” nearer the bottom and hey ho I’ve done it!!  I love your way of helping me to come up with do-able solutions!

  • “I have been treated by Deborah for many years for different issues and I must say that she is an exceptional Osteopath. I was quite nervous when I first started treatment and Deborah put me at ease immediately and made me feel so relaxed and reassured. She has been so good at treating the pains in my neck, shoulder, and back and has always been particularly comforting and calm at all times. Her method is highly effective and I fully recommend her.”

  • "Deborah is an incredibly skilled osteopath who has treated my husband for a couple of back and shoulder conditions. Plus she has carried out cranial osteopathy on two of my children with amazing results. She transformed two very unsettled babies who cried a lot, into much more settled contended ones! She comes highly recommended from the Pearce family!"

  • I have been treated by Deborah for back and neck pain for several years. She is excellent at what she does, and extremely knowledgeable on all aspects of the body. She has also treated me for the pain and symptoms that come from the Pelvic Girdle Pain/SPD that I have experienced with both of my pregnancies. She is very honest when providing treatment and only sees you when you need it- I had worried that by trying a treatment that I paid for, I would end up going on a regular basis, but Deborah only suggests you come when she believes you still need it. After she has treated you to her (and your) satisfaction, the rest is up to you, and she encourages you with ways to help yourself. So glad I decided to try osteopathy and found Deborah, muscle pain no longer worries me, I just book an appointment with Deborah knowing she'll fix me in no time!.

  • Just wanted to thank you for your advice today. As a result I rang my GP for an emergency appointment on the advice of my Osteopath. Saw my GP this evening, had an US exam which was negative re DVT, but was given antibiotic for “ possible “ early stages of cellulitis to start if felt necessary. So..... great attention from morning till evening....thank you all Health Professionals.
