Osteopathy is a hands-on therapy. By treating your joints, muscles, ligaments and nerves we enable your body to function effectively and without pain.
Your treatment could involve hands-on manipulation of joints, bones, ligaments, connective tissue, muscle and tendons, cranial osteopathy and acupuncture. It may also include nutritional advice, remedial exercises and relaxation techniques.
Osteopathy can help with the following conditions:
- Back and neck: Sciatica, ‘slipped discs‘, whiplash injury, muscle and ligament strains, stiffness
- Joints: Arthritis, joint hyper-mobility, joint sprains, frozen shoulder
- Sports injuries: Muscle strains/tears, tendinitis, ‘golfers/tennis’ elbow
- Headaches and migraine
- Postural problems
- Work-related injuries: Repetitive strain injuries, ergonomic problems
- Digestive problems
Cranial Osteopathy is a patient focused physical approach to promoting, restoring and maintaining physical well being in patients of all ages.
It may benefit:
Expectant mothers experiencing low back pain, digestive problems, sciatica, muscle spams or headache, arising from neck stiffness.
Babies, children and teenagers with digestive problems, general or acute backache, sport injuries, joint sprains, muscle spasms and inability to relax.
Acupuncture originated in China, where it is used to relieve pain and treat diseases. Western acupuncture is an extremely useful addition to osteopathy in treating problems with muscles, bones, joints and connective tissue.
How Does It Work?
By inserting fine needles into specific areas, we can stimulate the release of your body’s own natural painkillers. This helps to provide the best environment for your body’s own healing response, helping to restore its natural balance.
Monthly maintenance sessions will help to maintain increased mobility and lessen the recurrence of symptoms. They can also be helpful for pain relief in chronic conditions, and to halt the progression of arthritis.
