What is Osteopathy?
The world of osteopathy can be confusing at times and it is important to have a good understanding of what it actually is before looking for osteopathy treatments for your pain. Simply put, Osteopaths aim to do three main things – these are; the detecting of health problems associated with movement, the treatment of these problems associated with movement and finally the prevention of these problems associated with movement. Osteopathy is a great alternative to prescription medicine and is centred around the principle of ensuring a persons wellbeing depends on their muscles, ligaments, bones and how well the connective tissue is able to function together, ideally in a smooth manner.
Often, we find people are unsure of osteopathy and the results it can achieve – to cement the fact that osteopathy is an effective treatment for a variety of mobility pains; The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence actively recommend manual therapy in addition to a variety of different exercises as an effective treatment for lower back pain. It is also important to note that to use an osteopath we are available to all and you do not have to be referred to us by your GP. Another thing to note is that in most cases private healthcare cover will provide cover for a variety of osteopathy treatments.

Why are Osteopaths important for you and your wellbeing?
In addition to some of the benefits mentioned above the main reason, osteopathy is a great treatment for you and your mobility pain is because of the wholesome approach that we have towards treating a patient. The main and most crucial part of Osteopathy is the diagnosis because this forms the basis of our treatment schedule and the after session exercises that we assign to our patients. Another key area of osteopathy is the prevention aspect – the treatments that are offered not only diagnose and fix the problem/pain but also prevent any of the pain from reoccurring in the future. Osteopathy is able to drastically improve the mental and physical health of our patients and provides the results they want to see.
With Osteopathy as it considers the entire body it is not only beneficial for the affected area but there may be issues with your posture, knees or something else causing a problem for your back. As well as working through manipulation and massage techniques. We will also provide actionable exercises that will help with the pain your experiencing – One of the easiest things to do is ensure that you are active throughout the day. This can be done through regular 30 min walks to top up water. In addition to this, correcting your posture when you feel it slipping is of the utmost importance.
