What you need to know
A typical treatment involves an osteopath taking a detailed medical history from the patient followed by a careful examination. He/she will make a diagnosis of what is causing the symptoms, and explain how the pain has resulted from the injury.
Using subtle and gentle techniques, the osteopath works to release the accumulated stresses and strains in the body. The aim is to resolve the cause of the pain and in doing so relieve the current symptoms and also improve the underlying health of the tissues to help prevent reoccurrence.
By treating the underlying joint restrictions, working with joint alignment, improving blood flow, decreasing nerve tension and balancing muscle length, Osteopaths can improve recovery and prevent further complications and episodes. Once your body is working as it should, your self-healing mechanisms will be able to do their job properly.
Osteopathy will not only address your immediate pain but will identify any other problems that maybe contributing to the problem. Patients often report an improvement in general well being, energy levels, sleep patterns and also in areas of symptoms other than those that brought them to the osteopath in the first place.
The Osteopath may give advice about your diet, posture, work-station arrangement, exercises and stretches (as required) for maintenance of your health and to help prevent future injuries from occurring.
This type of treatment is suitable for everyone from newborn babies to the very elderly, being extremely gentle.
