Your Consultation

Osteopathy treats pain and problems arising from both trauma and postural strains.

As most of us know traumas, both recent and old, are a common cause of musculoskeletal pain. Trauma frequently involves ligamentous strain, bone and connective tissue, which in turn is reflected in the muscular system. Postural strain frequently triggers old traumas that interact with poor ergometrics when performing repetitive tasks; computer use is a well-known example.

The assessment of complex strains of the musculoskeletal system is the art of osteopathy. As a holistic modality, osteopathy also considers the effects of your lifestyle and work on your presentation.

Correction of joint strain (bone movement) is fundamental to the normalising of the muscles and connective facias.
