Osteopathy is a form of manual therapy that can have beneficial effects for a variety of muscle, ligament, tendon and joint conditions. An osteopath will spend time talking with you to understand more about you and your symptoms, along with your medical history and lifestyle.
Osteopathy is suitable for people of all ages, and you’ll find that it’s not all about ‘clicking’ joints. I use a wide range of gentle hands-on techniques that focus on releasing tension, stretching muscles and mobilising joints.
This is often used together with exercise and helpful advice designed to help you manage your pain, keep active and maintain the best of health. We treat a wide range of people who all present with a variety of aches, pains and strains. For this reason we tailor the treatment to each individual patient to ensure they are part of the treatment plan, and are comfortable with the process.
Some of the things osteopathy can help with are:
- Generalised aches and pains including arthritic pain
- Back and neck pain
- Headache arising from the neck (cervicogenic) / migraine prevention
- Frozen shoulder / shoulder and elbow pain / tennis elbow
- Circulatory problems
- Muscle spasms
- Minor sports injuries and tensions
We also offer medical acupuncture, which can be used to help a wide variety of issues.
