Why see an Osteopath?
As osteopaths, we can treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal and pain conditions (acute or chronic), including but not limited to:
- Arthritis (osteoarthritis and rheumatoid)
- Headaches and Migraines
- Neck and back pain
- Sciatica and nerve injuries
- Sports injuries
- Joint pain like shoulders, hips or knees
- Hand and foot pain
- Pregnancy related pain and discomfort
- Transport or work-related injuries
We’ll generally approach these conditions with a combination of hands-on treatments, exercise rehabilitation, pain management and self-care strategies.
We have a huge variety of hands on techniques that mean we can address all the tissues involved and provide an individually tailored approach to any given condition.
Some examples of ‘hands on’ manual therapy techniques are;
- Massage & soft tissue manipulation
- Assisted stretching of muscle groups
- Joint mobilisation & manipulations
- Nerve mobilisations and desensitisations
What really sets us apart from most other musculoskeletal health care practitioners is the time we spend with our patients. We take the time to get to know you as a whole person, not just your condition. This means we’re well placed to help you tackle all the factors that contribute to your health.
As osteopaths, we’re highly skilled in providing advice on injury prevention, pain management and rehabilitation programs so we can help you recover from injury and get moving again.
We develop treatment plans that take your individual body, health and lifestyle into account. In our holistic view of the body, the musculoskeletal system is inseparable from the rest of your body, so attention is also given to other systems such as the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems. These systems all play significant roles in the healing process and helping you to harness these for recovery will help you to adapt to the health challenges you face.
