Osteopathy

sore-backOverview

Osteopaths focus on the body’s skeleton and joint structure as well as the underlying muscle, soft tissue and internal organs and work to re-align it back into balance.

Key Benefits

The goal of treatment is to ascertain and treat the underlying cause of your problem and not simply the pain itself. Utilising a highly developed sense of touch, Michelle will identify any problems with your musculoskeletal system looking at muscles, joints, bones and ligaments. Once this framework is in balance the body as a whole will function better, recover from injury more quickly, and the initial complaint may not recur at all if postural changes are made and regular exercises are undertaken.

“The body has the inherent capacity to defend and repair itself”
Osteopathic Principle

Most people who see an Osteopath do so for help with back pain or other problems related to muscles and joints however this is not the limit of its scope – please contact Michelle, to discuss your individual presentation and to see whether Osteopathic treatment would be suited to you.

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has concluded that osteopathy is an effective treatment of persistent lower back pain and recommends it as a treatment for this condition.
