What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a manual therapy technique used to stretch, mobilise, reposition, balance and get you back on the move. It is based on the principle that the wellbeing of an individual depends on their bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue functioning smoothly together.
Osteopaths look at health in a different way to other practitioners. We provide a comprehensive approach to healing the whole person, rather than only managing the symptoms. We use physical manipulation, stretching and massage, increasing the mobility of joints; relieving muscle tension; enhancing blood supply to tissues and helping your body to heal.
Following an initial assessment, we work in half hour appointments using various different hands-on techniques to help get rid of your pain, always working with the level of manipulation you feel comfortable with. The number of treatments required is specifc to each person, injury and condition but we can give you an estimate of this in the frst consultation.
We also give advice regarding work habits, exercise and possible need for x-rays or other health professional consultation or medical investigations to get you back to good health and flexibility.

At your frst appointment, you will be asked about the history of your current complaint in detail. This will include questions about how long you have had the problem, how it may have started, what factors may be stopping it getting better. We will want to know about the impact of your trouble on your daily activities, including your domestic, social and work life.
You will also be asked about your past history of similar problems and about any other body framework injuries. We will also want to know about any other health problems such as illnesses, tests and investigations, hospitalisations or operations you may have undergone. The effects of stress, dietary intake and impact of your lifestyle on your health may also be explored. The examination will include a detailed evaluation of your standing and sitting postures. The flexibility level of your spine and other joints will be assessed.
Once the examination has been completed and the diagnosis has been made, we can then decide as to whether our osteopathic treatment is appropriate and if so, what approach is indicated. Sometimes, depending upon what is diagnosed, a referral to another healthcare practitioner may be deemed to be in your best interest.
