Osteopathic Treatment for Adults, Pregnant Mothers, Babies and Children
Osteopathy is a form of hands-on treatment that aims to improve the movement and function of your body and to reduce areas of tension and pain. Approaches we use to achieve this can include massage and stretching of muscles, mobilisation or manipulation of joints and a very gentle form of treatment known as Cranial Osteopathy.
Treatment will often include advice on exercises to stretch or strengthen areas of your body and postural or work station changes to reduce stress on your body. These suggestions will help to speed your recovery and reduce further relapses.
Osteopathy is all about helping you to achieve a better state of balance within your body, so that it can function at its optimum - pain free, better mobility, more energy and a greater sense of well-being.
Who & What Do Osteopaths Treat?
Osteopaths treat people of all ages, from new born babies and pregnant mothers to the elderly. Treatments are tailored on an individual patient basis, varying the techniques used as appropriate to the patient’s age, health and presenting condition.
The treatment approach used with babies and young children is mostly Cranial Osteopathy which is gentle, safe and effective and can be applied to any part of the body.
Patients seek treatment for a very wide range of conditions so please phone or email if you are not sure whether osteopathy might be right for you. Conditions we commonly see include neck, back or limb pain or stiffness, repetitive strain injuries, pain from postural changes in pregnancy, sports injuries and arthritic pain, to name a few.
