Osteopathy

"When you have adjusted the physical to its normal demands, nature supplies the remainder." - Andrew T Still

Osteopathy is considered to be an alternative, or complementary therapy. It involves treating problems by stretching, manipulating and massaging the skeleton and muscles. Treatment encourages the body to heal, helps muscles relax, encourages blood to flow into the tissues and helps increase joint mobility. Muscles, bones, ligaments and connective tissue are all connected and work together in the body. If there is a problem in one area, it can impact upon the others, such as headaches as a result of tight neck muscles.

How can an Osteopath Help?

The practitioner will be looking for any weak areas, tightness, pain or areas with restricted mobility. You will receive a clear explanation of what issues they find, and they will discuss a treatment plan with you. The benefits and any risks will be explained to you, the number of treatment sessions you will need, and the cost of treatment.

What will my first treatments consist of?

The treatment will consist of the practitioner using their hands to stretch joints, encourage joints to move in the way they should, massage and possibly ‘thrusts’ whereby movements are given to the spine eliciting a clicking noise. They will explain what they are doing, and ask for your consent. Treatment should not be painful, but there may be some tenderness afterwards. You may be instructed to do some exercises in between treatment sessions. Throughout your treatments, your treatment will be reviewed and altered if necessary.

How long will it take to recover?

Recovery is entirely dependant on the condition the osteopath is treating. We have seen that patients often recover in a mulit-disciplinary approach. Patients are often given exercises and stretches to do alongside their treatment and clinical evidence does show that patients who comply with these recover faster.
