If mysterious aches and pains are an everyday thing, Osteopathy could help you get back to your best. Osteopathy is a form of manual therapy that seeks to find and treat the root cause of your pain or symptoms. It helps to improve mobility and reduce pain by using manual therapy techniques to manipulate joints, muscles, fascia, and tissues. Osteopathy is a non-invasive practice that uses techniques like Osteopathic manipulation, muscle energy, mobility rehabilitation, and exercise to bring the body back to its natural state of wellness. Osteopathy offers a holistic treatment that focuses on the body’s neuro-musculoskeletal and all visceral systems.
During an osteopathy session, the osteopath will conduct a thorough assessment of the patient’s body, looking for areas of tension, restriction, or misalignment. Based on this assessment, the osteopath will use a range of techniques, including massage, stretching, and manipulation, to help bring the body back into balance. These techniques are gentle and non-invasive, and the patient should feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the session.
