How does Osteopathy help you?

Osteopathy is patient centred care. We take the time to listen and understand what happened to cause your pain and how this is affecting your life. We collaborate all the information in a treatment from your history, testing process and any lifestyle factors to arrive at a diagnosis. A proper diagnosis guides us to tailoring effective treatment for you, prescribing easy exercises and giving you the best advice possible. This approach looks at the whole body, not just treating your symptoms.

Osteopathy addresses the most important parts of your body, we treat the muscular nature of your pain using massage techniques. To the underlying structural part of your pain we use joint mobilisation or realigning of key parts of your body. Some of our practitioners complement treatment by using dry needling, exercise prescription and practical advice about how your lifestyle activities can be adapted to help you recover more quickly and have you back living your full life.
