OSTEOPATHY

Osteopathy is an established complementary therapy that aims to improve health across all body systems by manipulating & strengthening the musculoskeletal framework.

Osteopathy recognises that much of the pain and disability we endure stems from abnormalities in the function of body structure, as well as damage caused to it by diseases.
Not only does Osteopathy rely on many of the diagnostic procedures involved in standard medical assessment and diagnosis, it, uniquely, assesses the patient mechanically, functionally and posturally in order to devise a treatment tailored to the individual. Osteopathy is safe and effective, aiming to promote the health of people through the use of manual therapy, exercise and health advice. It not only looks at the physical symptoms but at the wider picture, including lifestyle, attitudes, general health, and medical history. Osteopathy is therefore a patient-centred, not condition-centred, approach.

Osteopaths are highly-trained healthcare professionals, regulated by law and recognised as one of the Allied Health Professions by NHS England. Osteopathy is suitable for all ages, from babies to the elderly.

What Could Osteopathy Help With?

  • Generalised Aches & Pain
  • Neck & Back Pain
  • Hip, Knee, Foot/Ankle, Shoulder, Elbow, Hand/Wrist Pain
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Headaches & Migraines
  • Disc Injuries (Including Sciatica)
  • Arthritic/Rheumatic Pain
  • Sports Injuries
  • Stress Related Disorders
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Neuralgia
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Muscle Spasms/Cramps
  • Circulatory Problems
  • Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD) & Pregnancy Issues

Whatever your pain, the skilled diagnostic and therapeutic techniques of osteopathy often allow you a speedy return to normal activity. If you have had the pain for a long time and other forms of treatment have not helped, osteopathic treatment, with its patient-centred approach, may be beneficial, although it may require time and patience. The Osteopath will look at how your whole body functions and so be able to reduce strain on the painful area caused by mechanical problems elsewhere.
There are times when your Osteopath may recommend parallel care. Osteopaths frequently work in close co-operation with your doctor.

Why Osteopathy?

Osteopaths help to reduce tissue inflammation as well as diagnose and treat subtle dysfunction in the nervous system that can cause hidden problems in muscle function and other aspects of the body that can be hard to uncover by other health professionals not trained to do so. By uncovering these significant underlying causes of pain and dysfunction, Osteopaths are often able to restore normal health and function.
Much long-term, recurrent pain is caused by degenerative changes.

A recent survey conducted by the General Osteopathic Council, the body that regulates Osteopaths, found that 96% of respondents were satisfied or very satisfied with their osteopathic care, and over 50% reported an improvement in their symptoms one week after their first consultation.
This report from the Institute of Osteopathy brings together existing research around the patient experience, clinical effectiveness and safety of osteopathic practice.
