OSTEOPATHY

An experienced Osteopath can help transform your health and vitality
Osteopathy is a form of manual healthcare which recognises the important link between the structure of the body and the way it functions, it focuses on the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulatory system, connective tissue and internal organs operate as a unit.

With Osteopathy the practitioner uses his skills in evaluating, diagnosing as well as using a wide range of hands-on techniques; an osteopath can identify important types of dysfunction in a person’s body. Osteopathic treatment include techniques such as stretching and massage for general treatment of the soft tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments) along with mobilisation of specific joints and soft tissues
What this means is that if you were to visit an Osteopath for a sore ankle, your Osteopath would assess not only the injured ankle, but also all the connecting tissues that attach to your ankle, as these tissues affect the strength of your ankle.

Osteopathic treatment will vary from person to person, as each injury and problem is unique and would need to be assessed and treated differently. It’s up to the practitioner to evaluate and work out a treatment that suits the person and injury.

Osteopathy has been shown to be successful in helping a wide range of conditions including, musculoskeletal system, vascular system, nervous system, and visceral (organ) systems. The most common issues they treat are
• Neck and back pain
• Sports injuries
• Headaches
• Postural problems
• Occupational injuries
• Sciatica
• Carpal tunnel syndrome
• Tennis elbow
• Arthritis
• Knee and foot pain
