What is Osteopathy? What does it treat?

Osteopathy is now recognised as an effective treatment for a wide range of disorders. It helps to restore the body to its normal structure and function. Osteopathy does not just treat backs. All manner of musculo-skeletal conditions will benefit from osteopathy. Osteopathy benefits all ages. The treatment is gentle enough for babies as well as patients suffering from osteoporosis. Osteopathy is defined as holistic medicine. An osteopath in looking at the problem will also identify what is causing the problem in order to address both issues. Some problems treated include: hormone problems, constipation, headache, dizziness, sinus problems, headache, tinnitis, babies with birth problems, lymph drainage, sports injuries and much more. A free consultation can be arranged.

The Treatment

Osteopathic treament is not prescriptive and is adapted to suit the patient and the condition treated. It is also holistic and treats the whole person. That is why osteopathy can be used to treat babies, the very old, pregnant women or even those suffering from osteoporosis. All patients are thoroughly examined, the problem diagnosed, the problem is treated, and person is then given advice, exercise etc to help speed up the healing process.

The patient is usually given a follow-up appointment. The number of appointments will depend on the condition treated as well as the patient's financial ability. No patient is however refused treatment on their inability to pay. Ph 07753634449
