Osteopathy Treatment:

What happens when you consult an osteopath?

Before any treatment is carried out:

a) Case History (interviewing the patient) noting all the factors (age, occupation, when the symptoms began and progression including all medical history) that could be important in reaching a diagnosis.

b) Examination is carried out to evaluate which part and how much of the body is involved. (Patients are advised that in order to carry out a proper assessment of their pain, they may have to undress to their underwear. Gowns will be provided. A chaperone can be requested.)

There are a range of different forms of treatment, these treatments include:

  • Soft Tissue Treatment

  • Manipulation Treatment - are movements that are carried out on a joint to improve its mobility.

  • Articulations - to stretch the soft-tissues, muscles, ligaments, tendons by moving  the joint rhythmically, therefore increasing flexibility, and feeding this back to the central nervous system, to bring about a greater range of flexibility.

  • Cranial Treatment - is a specialized form of osteopathy. It is a whole set of very gentle manual techniques which are generally applied to the whole of the cranium (head)  and the sacrum (base of the spine). but can also be used in adults either exclusively or in conjunction with other forms of osteopathy. Ultrasound - is mechanical energy that is applied to damaged or inflamed tissue.

  • Ultrasound - is mechanical energy that is applied to damaged or inflamed tissue (for example, shoulder rotator cuff tendonitis, knee ligaments, Achilles tendonitis). It will speed up and enhance the quality of the repair.
