Osteopathy can assess and treat people of any age from the elderly to the newborn and from pregnant women to sports people. Conditions that osteopathy can be useful in treating include:
- Neck & back pain
- Frozen shoulder
- Hip, knee, foot and ankle injuries
- Muscle strains
- Sports injuries
- Repetitive strain injury
- Strains caused by poor posture
- Post-operative rehabilitation
- Pregnancy related pain such as Sacroiliac pain, low back pain or Symphysis Pubis pain
Osteopathic treatment does not simply treat the ‘sore bit’ but looks at how and why those symptoms have arisen. Osteopaths have a holistic approach and believe that your whole body will work well if your body is in good structural balance. To take an example from the British Osteopathic Association’s website (www.osteopathy.org); imagine a car that has one of its front wheels not quite aligned. It may run well for a while, but after a few thousand miles, the tyre will wear out. You can apply this example to the human body, which is why it is so important to keep the body in good health. I employ a wide range of techniques, including joint mobilization, cranial techniques (sometimes referred to as ‘cranial osteopathy’), energy techniques, soft tissue massage, exercise prescription and lifestyle advice. It is this breadth of approach that enable me to focus on every patient’s precise needs.
