Osteopathic manual medicine is a type of complementary healthcare and can be used alongside conventional healthcare. Osteopathy is a registered profession in the UK. Almost anyone can benefit from osteopathic treatment. Including children, pregnant mums, elite athletes and the elderly. By taking your health screen and case history. Then by using our diagnostic skills we also know when we shouldn’t treat. And when we need to refer you on. Or share the management of your condition with other Health Professionals.
Osteopathy primarily consists of gentle hands on treatment. Involving joint mobilisation & manipulation. The use of varying hand pressure on joints, muscles, fascia and underlying body tissues. Many Osteopaths if clinically indicated, may also use or offer a range of therapy techniques. From disciplines such as physical therapy, cranial sacral therapy, acupuncture or rehab. All treatments need continuous consent to be used. Osteopaths will also give advice on diet and lifestyle factors to manage conditions. And improve overall health and well being.
