Osteopathy is a system of complementary medicine involving the treatment of medical disorders through the manipulation and massage of the skeleton and musculature.
Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment which works with the structure and function of the body. Maintaining a good mechanical function is essential to good health and wellness. Problems in the framework of the body can disturb the circulatory system or nerves to any part of the body, and affect any aspect of health. Osteopaths work to restore the structure and function of the body to a state of balance and harmony, thus helping the whole person.
Osteopathy can help a variety of conditions from back pain, sciatica and frozen shoulder to headaches, digestive disorders, menstrual problems and sinus pain.
Osteopathic treatments take 30 minutes and an average of 2-6 treatments are needed. Before treatment, our osteopath will take your case history and then carry out a full assessment of the body/affected area. He will then fully discuss the diagnosis with you and explain the treatment approach which would be best for you.
