p>Osteopathy is recognised as an effective treatment for a wide range of painful disorders. It helps restore the function of the musculoskeletal system (joints, muscles and ligaments). The aim is to relieve pain and get you going again as quickly as possible. /p>
With the use of a number of different treatments, including: br>
-Soft tissue massage. br>
-Deep friction. br>
The aim is to increase the mechanical efficency of the musculoskeletal system and return the function of the body to normal.
-Pregnancy related pain
-Repetative strain injury
-Post operative rehabilitation
-Sprts injury( shoulder, wrist , knee and ankle pain).
-History of the injury.
-Past medical history.
-Family medical history.
The musculoskeletal aspect of the injury will be examined as well as the medical involvments where necessary.
The diagnosis will then be explained to the patient along with the benefits of undergoing the treatment.
Once the symptoms have subsided a rehabilitation program will be given to help strengthen the area of weakness.
Strapping can be used with more acute injuries to decrease inflamation at the site of injury and in the initial stages of rehabilitation.
I applied to the London School of Osteopathy (5 year degree course).while I was training to be an Osteopath, I worked for six years in an Osteopathic practice that specialised in the treatment of both professional and amateur sports men and women.
Using the combined effects of Osteopathy, electrotherapy, strapping, and rehabilitation the recovery speed from injury to full fitness is remarkable. Many Osteopaths say they treat sports injury. An indepth knowledge of the dinamics of the particular sport a person is returnung to is key in returning them to full fitness as quickly and safely as possible.
I opened The 1-2-1 Osteopathic clinic in 2005. The facilities include 3 treatment rooms, retail area, and a dedicated rehabilitation gym.
