Helping your body’s natural healing mechanisms

Osteopathy is a complementary medicine which focuses on manual readjustments, myofascial release and other physical manipulation of the muscle tissue and bones. Seeing an osteopath can help to improve posture and as well as provide relief to patients suffering with pain.

Some examples of conditions commonly treated using osteopathy include:

  • Back pain

  • Neck pain

  • Sciatica

  • Joint aches and pain

  • Sports injuries

  • Musco-skeletal problems during pregnancy

Your osteopath will be able to help treat problems by correcting and improving your body’s natural healing mechanisms. We will provide you with advice on factors such as posture and lifestyle as well as give you appropriate exercises to aid your rehabilitation.

The number of treatments that are needed depends very much on the nature of the problem. Some acute problems can be dealt with in just one or two sessions. Chronic problems may require a longer course of treatment however. Many patients also voluntarily choose to see their osteopath periodically on a maintenance basis.
