What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a whole body approach to health and wellbeing, which has been shown to be an effective treatment for a wide range of problems, especially joint pain and restricted movement. The therapy aims to increase joint mobility, relieve muscle tension and increase blood supply to the tissues, promoting healing and restoring balance to the body.

 

Many people know osteopathy as a treatment for back and neck problems (not arising from an accident or injury), however scientific evidence shows that it could help you in many other areas of your health, including:

 

 

  • Arthritic pain

  • Back pain

  • Circulatory problems

  • Cramp

  • Digestion problems

  • Headaches (neck related) 

  • Inability to relax

  • Migraine prevention

  • Muscle spasms

  • Neuralgia

  • Neck pain

  • Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP)

 

How does osteopathy work?

By placing yourself in the skilled hands of a fully trained and experienced osteopath, you will benefit from a number of different tools and techniques, including massage, joint manipulation and stretching. These techniques may not only provide you with relief from your symptoms where they appear, but may also help to treat the root cause of those symptoms, which may lay elsewhere in your body.
