What can we Treat?

Osteopaths are perhaps best known for providing effective treatment for back pain, however osteopathy can provide relief from a wide variety of problems including:

  • Shoulder, knee or hip pain
  • Arthritic pain
  • Tennis / golfer’s elbow
  • Repetitive strain injury
  • Sciatica and trapped nerves
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Sports injuries and rehabilitation
  • Postural problems
  • Inability to relax
  • Some forms of headaches

 

Techniques

A variety of techniques may be used, including massage, joint articulation and manipulation and medical acupuncture.

In addition, it is common for us to give home based exercises which can help to enhance the hands-on treatment you will receive.

 

What to Expect

At the first consultation a full medical case history will be taken. This enables us to build up a fuller picture of your overall health and inform us as to what other influences may have brought you to see us.

As part of this , we normally do a full body assessment to establish how your bosy moves and what imbalances there may be. You will be asked to dress down to under garments, so please feel free to wear vest tops, shorts etc.

An examination of the specific problematic area will be carried out. Findings will then be discussed and a treatment plan agreed.
