Osteopathy specialises in the diagnosis, management, treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal and other related disorders. Osteopathy takes the form of manual therapy that can have beneficial effects for a variety of muscle and joint conditions.
Our priority is to make you feel at ease during your visit to our clinic. We will diagnose your problem and explain it fully to you in a language you will understand. Successful osteopathic treatment requires a view of the mechanics of the body as a whole, not just a focus on the particular area of pain, such as the spine. This holistic view necessitates the full involvement of the patient: in diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
Osteopaths spend four to five years training to understand the relationship between the body’s organs, joints and muscles and are experienced in treating disorders of the musculoskeletal structures throughout the whole body. Osteopathy is a person centred approach that strives to provide the optimum conditions for health by working with your body’s own healing mechanisms to achieve results. Osteopaths see people of all ages, including pregnant women, elite athletes, & babies.
The health risks associated with having osteopathic treatment are extremely low, if you have any concerns about the safety of your treatment your osteopath will be happy to discuss these with you.
