Osteopathy focuses on treatment of your whole person and can improve your body's vitality in order for it to heal itself and function as a balanced unit.
Osteopathy is an established, recognised system of diagnosis and treatment, which places its emphasis on the treatment of your whole body. We use many of the diagnostic procedures used in conventional medical assessment and diagnosis.
The main strength of Osteopathy lies in the unique way that you are assessed from a mechanical, functional and postural standpoint. Osteopaths use their hands both to investigate the underlying causes of pain and to carry out treatment.
Osteopathic treatment aids the body to heal naturally without the use of drugs eliminating harmful or irritating side effects.
The following example are ailments that respond particularly well to Osteopathy.
- Back and neck pain
- Arthritic pain
- Sports injuries
- Joint/muscle/tendon/ligament strain
- Arm pain
- Pre and postnatal changes
- Repetitive Strain and overuse injuries
- Stress related symptoms
- Reduced flexibility, mechanical limitations
