Osteopathy – An introduction

Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. It works with the structure and function of the body, and is based on the principle that the well being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together.

We will look at your posture and how you move your body in different ranges of motion. We may also assess what happens when we move it for you and see what hurts, where and when. A wide range of gentle, non-invasive manual techniques such as joint articulation, manipulation and soft tissue techniques are applied in order to restore movement to a joint and reduce tissue tension.

We may sometimes feel that immediate treatment is not appropriate and can refer you for clinical tests, such as X-rays or an M.R.I, If we think you need them.

Although Osteopathy can treat a wide range of conditions, current NHS guidelines state that Osteopathy is a particularly effective treatment for persistent lower back pain and can be a successful treatment for recovery after hip or knee operations.

Osteopathy is a primary health care technique and can complement other medical practices. It is suitable for most people regardless of age or ability and can contribute towards the treatment and management of a variety of conditions. Osteopaths primarily work through the neuro-musculo-skeletal system, mostly on muscle tissue and joints, using patient-centred approaches.

Osteopathic treatment doesn’t use medication and is also non-invasive but can have a powerful effect on your body. By simply helping to achieve a significantly better physical alignment the Osteopath will work to boost the central nervous system, lymphatic system, circulation of blood while maintaining joint and muscle health. Patients are treated with mobilisation, articulation and soft tissue techniques.
