What is osteopathy?
Many people believe that an osteopath is simply someone you go and see when you have a bad back. And while our osteopaths do deal with both chronic and acute backache, there is so much more to it that that.
Osteopathy stimulates the body’s natural self-healing mechanisms, treating the whole person rather than just an affected area. Your first appointment will comprise a thorough examination and, while we will take a detailed case history, our most effective diagnostic tool is touch. At this point we may draw on the expertise of other practitioners in our clinic, including physiotherapists and body conditioning experts. We’ll then analyse your movement before explaining your diagnosis and starting your treatment.
Osteopathy aims not only to relieve your symptoms, but also to address the cause of any problem.
