Osteopaths use a variety of therapeutic techniques to treat your symptoms and to treat any underlying issues that may be preventing your body from healing. A typical treatment may include soft-tissue massage, muscle energy techniques, muscle and connective tissue stretching, joint articulation and joint manipulation. Our osteopaths are also trained in cranial and visceral osteopathy.
As a part of osteopathic management, your osteopath will also offer postural advice, lifestyle advice and guidance on rehabilitation exercises.
Osteopathic treatment is not normally painful however you may experience some discomfort during and after treatment as your body reacts to the changes we make.
Following treatment, some patients report mild soreness that usually goes away within 48 hours. However, if you have any concerns please contact your osteopath for advice.
