WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?
How we can help
Osteopathy is a drug-free, non-invasive manual therapy that aims to improve health across all body systems by manipulating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework.
An osteopathic physician will focus on the joints, muscles, and spine. Treatment aims to positively affect the body's nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems.
Manual medicine means that both diagnosis and treatment are carried out with the hands.
Osteopathy is a complementary therapy. It is used alongside conventional treatment to improve health. However, osteopathic physicians are also qualified as medical doctors (MDs), and they have more training than other complementary therapists, such as naturopaths.
HOW IT HELPS YOU
Why choose an Osteopath
Osteopathy is very effective because osteopathic practitioners work holistically. This means that the body is viewed at a whole. This means that not only is your immediate local problem diagnosed and treated, but also any predisposing factors that could be impeding your recovery are identified and treated to let you get back to normal life quicker.
This is important because when one part of the body is restricted, the rest of the body works harder to compensate for the original injured area which can then lead to pain elsewhere. An example of this would be having stiff or restricted upper back as this may mean that you are predisposed to shoulder and neck pain.
Because osteopaths also address these wider factors this will result in a much better outcome.
As well as hands on treatment, advice is given on how to prevent your problem recurring.
