About Osteopathy

Conditions which can be treated by Osteopathy:
  • Muscular tension
  • Repetitive strain
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Joint stiffness
  • Back and neck pain as well as pain in the peripheral joints
  • Strain of muscles and ligaments from lifting or sports
 
Cranial treatment is deeply relaxing and can be effective in the release of tension and give relief from headaches.
 
A first appointment lasts between 45-60 minutes and includes taking a case history, carrying out a physical examination and beginning treatment. Further treatments last approximately 40 minutes. Techniques used include deep tissue massage, passive mobilisation, stretching, muscle energy and manipulation. Methods of treatment depend on the condition and what each individual feels comfortable with.
