Osteopathy concerns itself with the framework of the body - bones, joints, ligaments, muscles etc. - and how it is functioning. Faults in this mechanical system can cause pain and disability. When the structure is in harmony and balance then, like a well-tuned engine, the body functions with a minimum of stress, wear and use of energy - leaving more energy for living. Osteopathy treats faults that occur to this system through injury, stress and other causes.
Osteopaths use a variety of stretching, thrusting and massage techniques to manipulate parts of your body. Your full medical history is taken, your posture and structural conditions carefully examined. Sometimes X-rays, blood tests or urine samples are required. Treatment may also include advice on posture, diet and lifestyle.
People with backache, headaches, neck, shoulder tension and joint strains - such as in the hips, knees, ankles, feet, wrists, elbows, shoulders or ribs.
For all age groups (from the trauma of birth to the arthritis of the elderly) and for sports injuries.
