Osteopathy

About Osteopathy.

           Osteopathy started in America in the late 1800s. Doctors noticed people with various medical complaints had structural problems in their joints, especially their spines and by manually correcting these structural problems, their symptoms improved. Osteopathy today is a still a healthcare profession that utilises a gentle and effective hands-on treatment approach to healthcare and still places emphasis on the function of the musculoskeletal system. It is based on the principle that the structure of your body influences how it functions. If the structure is wrong, it can’t function properly. Osteopaths are highly competent, fully regulated healthcare professionals, recognised by the NHS as fully qualified to diagnose and treat independently. They are skilled in assessing the mechanics of the joints around the whole body, in particular the spine.

        People often associate osteopathic treatment with ‘cracking joints.’ Manipulation is a useful technique for some patients and some problems but most osteopathic treatment is very gentle. Osteopaths have a range of other techniques on offer, from gentle soft tissue and stretching to the muscles, gentle rhythmical mobilizations to the joints and cranial sacral osteopathy. This means treatment can be adapted to safely treat younger and older patients with acute and chronic conditions. It is also adaptable to pregnancy, work strain, or pain and stiffness related to advancing years.
