(Hint: we treat people!)
Osteopathy has a role to play in many conditions.
Neck & Back pain
Tension neck & shoulders, mid back, ribs, lower back, sciatica, pinched nerves, disc problems, whiplash, referred pain, scoliosis, bad posture, arthritis, spondylolithesis, muscle strains, long term pain etc.
Hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, foot, ankle, knee, hip & pelvis. Arthritis, sports injuries, frozen shoulder, joint & ligament injury, muscle strains, rotator cuff, accident & surgical rehabilitation, foot arch & bursitis.
Stress & tension, migraine & cluster headaches. Spinal dysfunction, postural problems, trauma, whiplash, jaw & eye strain.
Repetitive strain injuries
All aspects of work, recreational, sports and postural strain. Ergonomics and postural advice to help minimise the injury and lessen the risk.
Post surgical, injury or medical rehabilitation is extremely important to ensure the best resolution and return to a normal, active life. Osteopathy has a great role to play from broken bones to post stroke recovery.
Hyperventilation syndrome, anxiety, stress, rib pain, diaphragm issues, asthma, shortness of breath, breath training etc.
Internal organ issues
The cardiovascular & digestive systems are complex and there are many ways in which dysfunction in these may affect the neuromusculoskeletal system. Osteopathy is gentle and effective.
Falls, whiplash & trauma from slipping down steps to coming off a horse or mountain bike in the forest. From the minor to the serious osteopathy can help.
Temperomandibular joint dysfunction, upper neck complex, teeth clenching & grinding, tension & stress.
Age related conditions
As we get older we need to work smarter. Osteopathy is a fantastic way to help maintain healthy and active function no matter what your ability.
