What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a natural therapy that focuses on your muscles, joints and nerves.
Osteopathy is commonly used to help back pain, jaw problems, sciatic pain, neck pain and other joint problems. Many people use osteopathy to relieve stiffness and aching and to improve flexibility.
Treatment involves a variety of techniques such as mobilising and stretching joints, massage style work on to your muscles, stronger joint manipulation where you may hear a cracking or popping noise, and muscle stretches.
I also give stretches and exercises, lifestyle advice and ergonomic advice.
The general aim is to achieve balanced posture & movement in your body.
We believe that this removes barriers to the healing process and therefore helps your body heal itself.
Osteopathy is a very safe therapy; serious side effects are extremely rare.
Osteopathy can be used alongside other treatments including standard medical intervention. We will advise you to speak to your GP for further investigation and treatment if necessary.
