OSTEOPATHY

WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?

Osteopathy specialises in the diagnosis, management, treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal and other related disorders.


Your osteopath will give you a clear explanation of what they find following their diagnosis and discuss a treatment plan that is suitable for you. They will explain the benefits and any risks of the treatment they are recommending. It is important to understand and agree what the treatment can achieve and the likely number of sessions needed for a noticeable improvement in how you feel.


Treatment is varied and can involve skilled manipulation of the spine and joints as well as massage of soft tissues combining subtle and gentle techniques. Self care measures and advice on exercise at home may be offered to assist your recovery, prevent recurrence or worsening of your symptoms.


Our clinic is known for using gentle approaches. We don’t believe in “no pain, no gain”. Each osteopath is skilled in the most subtle techniques meaning that treatment is not painful.
