Osteopathy involves the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of a wide range of health problems.
Its aim is to affect the mobility of joints, along with the body’s nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems in order to obtain optimal health.
It uses the body’s own natural ability to heal and maintain itself, to help restore function, relieve pain, promote recovery and enhance wellbeing.
Conditions Osteopaths treat
Osteopaths are known for treating back pain and postural problems.
However, patients have found that Osteopathic techniques can ease the symptoms of a wide range of conditions including joint pain, neuromuscular disorders, circulatory problems, digestive conditions, headaches and many others:
- General, physical or work related aches and pains
- Minor injuries (sports and other) muscle and ligament strains
- Arthritis and rheumatic pain
- Back ache
- Neck pain
- Joint pain - foot and ankle, hand and elbow (including Tennis/Golfers elbow)
- Hip and knee pain
- Shoulder pain
- Headaches – arising from the neck (cervicogenic) and migraine prevention
- Trapped nerves and sciatica
Treatment will follow after initial assessment and identification of your problem.
Treatment will be different for each individual depending on your age, condition and diagnosis.
Osteopaths use a combination of techniques, which may include stretching, articulation (moving your joints), targeted soft tissue massage, manipulation of joints (if appropriate), muscle energy techniques, fascial or gentle cranial procedures.
You will be given after care and preventative advice, exercises and tips.
Osteopaths are highly trained professionals (4/5 year degree course, specialising in musculoskeletal medicine and anatomy), recognised by the NHS as qualified and competent to diagnose and treat independently.
You do not need a referral from your doctor to be seen by an Osteopath.
As part of your in depth case history and assessment process your Osteopath is trained to screen for serious conditions. If found they may, with your consent, refer to your GP for further investigations or treatment.
