Osteopathy is often thought of as a treatment exclusively focused on the back, however it has a far wider reach and can be used to help, treat, and diagnose symptoms including: back & neck pain/stiffness; headaches resulting from neck and shoulder tension; shoulder and arm problems; pelvis, hip and leg problems.
Treatment normally involves a variety of gentle joint manipulations, articulations and soft tissue massage techniques that are appropriate to your age, fitness and diagnosis. Treatment is individually tailored for each patient and, depending upon your progress, may alter between treatments.
Osteopaths have a holistic approach and believe that your whole body will function best when it is in the best possible structural balance. Because of this your treatment will not always be in the area causing you pain, but may be targeted on other parts of your body that have caused your symptoms.
