How can Osteopathy help me?
An Osteopath’s main tool is their hands, used to identify abnormalities in the structure and function of a body, and to assess areas of weakness, tenderness, restriction or strain. By physical examination and assessing the movement and functioning of the body, your osteopath can diagnose and discuss with you the most appropriate treatment plan, estimating the likely number of sessions needed to treat your condition effectively.
By using Osteopathic techniques as a form of treatment it can work with your body’s ability to heal itself and help to restore the natural equilibrium. Treatment can range from relaxing and releasing muscle tension and stretching tight muscle tissue. Gentle massage and rhythmic movements applied to restricted joints in the spine or peripheral joints, such as shoulders, hips, knees. Stronger techniques such as manipulation can be useful for restricted joints, nerve irritation and increase joint mobility. The techniques your osteopath uses during treatment will depend on your problem or injury.
