Osteopathy is a treatment which addresses the relationship between the body’s function and the power of the mind to promote the body’s natural healing processes.
Osteopathy uses a range of techniques to help soothe back and neck pain, headaches, joint pains, muscle strains and work-related or sports-induced injury.
During consultation, osteopath’s will take a full history of the patient and conduct an examination. The initial assessment might involve performing a series of movements and require the individual to remove some items of clothing.
Treatment options are specified according to the needs of the individual and the techniques used will be the most appropriate, according to the needs of the client. Individuals may not require more than one or two sessions however when treating ongoing or chronic conditions, more sessions may be required.
