Osteopathy is a primary health care system which can help with the treatment and management of a wide range of conditions. Osteopathy study lasts for five years, similar to a medical degree, but with more emphasis on anatomy and musculoskeletal medicine, and over 1,000 hours of training in osteopathic techniques. Although most people think of osteopaths as back specialists, they work through the entire musculoskeletal system.
Your osteopath will use diagnostic and therapeutic techniques of conventional medicine. Depending on your age, fitness and diagnosis, they will then employ a range of hands-on methods, including soft tissue work, stretching, mobilisation and manipulation to resolve your condition.
Our osteopaths can also offer practical advice on lifestyle and workplace ergonomics, as well as sports injury rehabilitation, helping you lead all-round healthier lives.
How does it work
Osteopathy treatment focuses on the skeleton, joint function and underlying muscles, soft tissue and internal organs. Gentle stretching, mobilising techniques and specific adjustments affecting the joints and soft tissues, help to create the perfect conditions in which your body can heal.
Osteopathy is used to treat following conditions:
- Knee Osteoarthritis
- Wrist ⁄ Ankle and Foot pain
- Low Back Pain (acute and chronic)
- Neck pain
- Whiplash-associated disorders
- Shoulder pain
- Tennis elbow
- Hip osteoathritis
All our osteopaths are registered with the General Osteopathic Council. Patients are either referred by their doctor or may opt to see an osteopath independently.
Before any treatment, you’ll have a full assessment including a comprehensive written report of findings, so you know all your options.
