We treat pain and increase range of motion. Ranging from workplace injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome or back pain to sports injuries like tennis elbow and beyond.
Manual Osteopathy is hands-on, usually spending up to one hour addressing pain and restrictions using gentle mobilizations. A manual Osteopath has a holistic approach, sharing some treatment features with other healthcare practitioners . The gentle mobilizations remind us of the work of a chiropractor, but then without the use of high velocity techniques, spending lots of time and gentle touch instead. Relaxing massaging techniques are used to bring the body in a relaxed state before doing deep stretching. The targeted physical exercises and strengthening techniques remind us of the work of a Physiotherapist and help with long term recovery.
Often with pain there is inflammation. The Manual Osteopath has a thorough knowledge of nutrition in order to treat inflammation using nutrition.
