The body is good at looking after itself, and this is not a bad attitude most of the time. But if you're still in discomfort after a few weeks with not much sign of improvement, then it's time to think twice & to give your body a helping hand.
Even for those problems that are slowly coming right, in many cases treatment can help faster recovery than when left to itself. So why suffer longer than necessary?
Osteopathy is about much more than bad backs. Whilst it is true that backs and sore necks are the source of most complaints, we also treat people with a wider variety of conditions including sprained ankles, knee & hip problems and pregnancy related pains to mention just a few.
In addition to treatment, we'll advise on changes you can make at work and to exercise and general activity that will support and help maintain your recovery. This ‘maintenance’ aspect is sometimes overlooked by health practitioners, leading to unnecessary recurrence or the development of a new, but related problem.
We use a variety of techniques which may include joint manipulation, soft tissue techniques such as massage, trigger point therapy and cranial osteopathy.
