What is Osteopathy?

An Osteopath can be considered as a specialist in musculoskeletal pain who treats minor to major soft tissue and bony injuries. An osteopath is capable of treating all joints and soft tissues in the body from fingers, wrists, elbows, shoulders knees, feet and obviously the spine.

An osteopath will look holistically at the entire body. They will look at your problem and relate this to the way the whole body moves and functions as a whole. Treatment then uses movement of the human body to help restore normal function and help the body the heal itself.

Initial consultation

An initial consultation lasts roughly one hour and will involve taking a detailed case history, both examining and treating you, and carefully explaining to you diagnosis and prognosis so you understand your problem and feel in control.

During your consultation a complete case history is taken that will detail your past and present medical history. This includes information that may even seem unrelated such any medication that you are taking long and short term, among other factors.
