What is Osteopathy
Osteopaths focus on the body’s skeleton and joint function along with underlying muscles, soft tissue and internal organs. Each person is treated as an individual working with their specific symptoms. An example is a twisted pelvis may be the cause of your knee pain.
Treatment usually consists of a combination of soft-tissue releasing techniques and some specific adjustments affecting joints and soft-tissues (muscles tendons and ligaments).
What to expect
Osteopaths usually start any treatment by releasing and relaxing muscles and stretching stiff joints, using gentle massage techniques, rhythmic joint movements and muscle release techniques. The osteopath may also carry out manipulation using short, quick movements to spinal joints. Other techniques may also be used depending on your problem.
