Osteopathy is an established, recognised system of diagnosis and treatment that lays its main emphasis on the structural integrity of the body. Osteopathy uses many of the diagnostic procedures used in conventional medical assessment and diagnosis. Its main strength, however, lies in the unique way the patient is assessed from a mechanical, functional and postural standpoint and the manual methods of treatment applied to suit the needs of the individual.
• Lower back pain (with or without sciatica)
• Neck pain
• Sports injuries
• Repetitive strain injuries
• Tendon and ligament injuries• Muscle pulls and strains
• Headaches and migraines
• Joint problems
• Postural disorders
Your Osteopath will carry out a case history with an examination using a highly developed sense of touch called palpation, to identify any points of weakness or strain throughout the body. Osteopaths use touch, manipulation and occasionally acupuncture / dry needling to diagnose and treat problems. They all have a background in sports massage and may also incorporate these skills into their treatments. You will then be given a suitable treatment plan which will include rehabilitation exercises and advice.
