How do we treat?

The overall aim of osteopathic treatment is to release areas of restriction, improve mobility and blood flow and to correct and imbalances.

Osteopaths draw from a wide range of techniques.  These include massage-like techniques to relax and stretch the muscles and contracted areas of the body; rhythmic movements of the joints to improve their function; manipulation to release restricted joints; gentle relaxing techniques including cranial osteopathy which is especially suitable for children and babies.

You will also be given advice on how to prevent your problem recurring and you may be shown exercises to follow.  Dietary advise and stress management techniques can also be prescribed if appropriate.
