Although osteopaths treat many conditions, most people think of us as relieving back pain.
However, our approach is holistic, and we believe that your entire body
will work more harmoniously if you maintain its natural balance. Like a
car, if a part is worn its overall performance will suffer, and it may
eventually break down. The inevitable result for your body is wear and
tear, and consequent pain.
The British Medical Association’s
guidance for general practitioners states that doctors can safely refer
patients to osteopaths.
What to expect
We use a wide range of techniques,
including touch, physical manipulation, and massage. These help to
increase the suppleness and mobility of your joints, to relieve muscle
tension and pain, and to encourage your body’s own healing powers.
