As Modern Living puts ever increasing stresses and strains on people, a large number of people will suffer Muscular, Skeletal pain and symptoms at some point in their lives. The young, the elderly, manual workers, office professionals, pregnant women, children, active sports people and athletes can all be affected.
Osteopathy can provide practical and effective treatment and solutions adapted to suit anyone's need at any stage of life to promote a healthy, pain-free active life.
Osteopathy focuses on the Muscular and Skeletal system (bones, joints, muscles, tendons and interconnecting tissues) and the way this system inter-relates within the body. It combines the science of anatomy and physiology with the clinical methods of investigation.
Osteopathy uses touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, to release and relieve muscle tension and to enhance circulation and blood supply to nerves and tissue. Osteopathy works with your body's own mechanisms for healing to relieve pain and create flexibility for a healthy and active life.
The primary focus of Osteopathy is Wellness and Prevention. Osteopathy teaches healthy behaviours through exercise plans and advice relevant to the individual. This helps to promote lifestyle changes that encourage a healthier way of living.
