Osteopathic Therapy

Osteopathy is a complimentary treatment aimed at relieving pain connected with musculoskeletal disorders and promoting general health. One of their key principles of osteopathy is that a person’s general wellbeing is related to the proper alignment of the bone, muscle and connective tissues of the body. If part of your musculoskeletal system is impaired then it can lead to biomechanical issues and health problems beyond the original misalignment. This may involve negative effects to your circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems. Your osteopath will use a range of manual therapy techniques to correct any impairment, allowing the body to recover. Osteopathy can help relieve pain and promote healing, reducing the need for medication and helping avoid surgical intervention. The Osteopath takes a holistic approach to treatment looking at how your condition has affected your whole body, rather than just the specific site of injury. This approach aims to not only correct the obvious problems, but to balance all the bodies systems to achieve better health and wellbeing.


Osteopaths typically treat a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions including sports injuries, postural correction, arthritis, shoulder and neck pain. In particular, osteopathy is best known for the treatment of persistent lower back pain. There is also a range of conditions that osteopathy can help relive including headaches, depression and digestive disorders. The body is a single complex integrated structure and when a part of it function is impaired then the surrounding structures must adapt to compensate. Over time this leads the surrounding structures to develop their own conditions of pain, stiffness or inflammation. Osteopathy addresses this imbalance by relieving pain and stiffness, managing inflammation and mobilising muscles and joints. The relief from symptoms and correction the original impairment allows the body to heal itself. This is another key concept in Osteopathy, that the body has a natural ability to self-regulate and heal, requiring only initial corrective assistance to fully restore balance and wellbeing.


Osteopaths are keen on early intervention as they can then address a condition before it affects other body functions or become chronic. Advice on injury prevention, postural correction, exercise, stretches and stress reduction are part of the service you receive during treatment. In this way the Osteopath raises client awareness and self-management, so they can make conscious lifestyle choices to improve and maintain good health.


Osteopathic treatment will involve an initial assessment involving and detailed subjective history of your condition. Not only will your current issues be discussed, but also any past complaints that may have a bearing on your condition and how it is now affecting your lifestyle. Including any effect on your sleeping patterns or emotions, like anxiety or depression.
