What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a form of manual therapy with a person centred approach that strives to provide the optimum conditions for health, by working with your body’s own healing mechanisms to achieve results.
Osteopaths see a variety of people, young or old, from office workers to manual workers, busy mums to stressed-out professionals, exercise-addicts to tele-addicts.
Health risks to treatment are extremely low, and osteopaths are trained to be aware of any risk factors that might contra-indicate treatment.
Treatment consists of articulation of joints and stretching of your muscles along with some careful osteopathic manipulations. People may fear the clicking and popping of joints which may occur during treatment this is simply a separation of a vacuum within the synovial joint. If you have any concerns please don’t hesitate to ask.
