The Holistic Art of Realingment

Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a form of drug-free non-invasive manual medicine that focuses on total body health by treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework, which includes the joints, muscles and spine, its aim is to positively affect the body’s nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems and is a unique holistic (whole body) approach to health care

Our Osteopath does not simply concentrate on treating the problem area, they use ‘hands on’ techniques including soft tissue stretching, deep tactile pressure, mobilisation and manipulation of joints to improve circulation and correct altered biomechanics of your body to balance all the bodies systems without the use of drugs

Our Osteopath treats more conditions than you would think including aches in the head, back, neck, and heel, foot pain, sciatica, shin splints, tennis elbow and repetitive strain injury, asthma, arthritis, digestive problems, carpal tunnel syndrome, whiplash and postural problems

At an initial 60 minute consultation our Osteopath will complete a medical history with you about your lifestyle, diet and emotional status as well as your symptoms and details of any past accidents or traumas

A simple movement test will be performed so they can observe how you are using your body, identify any obvious mobility impairment and evaluate your posture. Neurological and orthopaedic tests help the osteopath to eliminate possible underlying pathologies and differentiate the basis of your complaint

Our Osteopath is highly trained to manually locate points of restriction or excessive strain in various parts of your body using a finely tuned sense of touch or palpation to assess the spine, joints, muscles and tendons. If require you may also be referred for blood tests or X-rays to confirm their findings, or review existing diagnostic results where available

After the initial consultation our Osteopath will provide you with a diagnosis and discuss a treatment program with you which could include dietary changes and a home exercise plan and such techniques as soft tissue stretching, to increase blood flow and improve flexibility of joints and muscles; articulation to mobilise joints by being passively taken through their range of motion; and muscle energy, to release tightness on the muscles by alternatively being stretched and made to work against resistance

If the diagnosis is one that requires further investigation or specialist intervention, our Osteopath will suggest a referral to an appropriate practitioner like your GP or other health care professional

We also welcome GP and Hospital referrals.  If your GP practice is not listed on our GP Referral Scheme, please ask us for our form to give to your practice to complete
