Osteopathy is a form of manual treatment that is recognized in the UK, Australia and America as a medical profession as the sessions have proved to be highly effective in reducing or eliminating pain.
So why is Osteopathy so effective? Osteopathy sessions are effective as the Osteopath views the body as a whole, investigating not only the area of the body that the patient is suffering from, but also the connected areas. Often we, as Osteopaths, find that re is a primary source of the blockage or damage is causing the patients main source of pain. For example and one of the most common cases is when a patient come into the clinic suffering from a pain in the back of the leg, this pain usually originates from a blockage, muscles tension or hernia in the lower back.

We know that the body communicates via nerve signals that travel from the brain and down the spine. If those nerve signals are blocked the body is unable to communicate and health deteriorates and pain arises. We also, as osteopaths understand how the body functions from a mechanical point of view and during an Osteopathy treatment an osteopath can detect, manually as well as from reading medical reports structural mis – alignments and limitations of movement. With this information the Osteopath can provide treatment and you, the patient will feel relief as the pain reduces. This normally take a number of sessions depending on the problem.
An Osteopathy session consists of a number of tests and manipulations, to ensure the manipulations are effective and provide the correct results. An Osteopath constantly investigates and modifies making the treatment progressive and more effective. Click here to book a consultation
