How Osteopathy Can Help
Osteopathy is a way of detecting, treating and preventing health problems by moving, stretching and massaging a person’s muscles and joints. As joints, muscles ligaments and tendons all work together, treatment will ensure that they are all moving cohesively together.
Osteopaths take a very holistic approach to injury treatment often looking beyond the site of any pain to establish the real cause or the problem, or to establish if there is any other underlying situation that requires treatment. This could, for example, include muscular strength imbalance or overuse.
The treatment provided is ideal across any age, fitness level or ability. Following an initial meeting and treatment, a plan of action will be agreed with you and if required further consultations booked.
