What We Treat

What To Expect

When you enter the clinic you will be greeted by our friendly osteopath. They will take a full history of your condition, but ask you some questions to get to know you. What your goals are, what you enjoy and how your problem is affecting your day to day life. they will then perform a physical assessment in order to confirm diagnosis and then discuss with you an appropriate treatment plan. They will spend time making sure you understand the situation and then will provide you with the treatment you need. It may be that you would benefit from the expertise of another professional in the clinic and in that case your physio may discuss you with the other clinician, or arrange for you to see them too.


Osteopathy FAQs:

An osteopath is a regulated practitioner who uses evidence based, non-invasive therapy to find the cause of a problem rather than use pharmaceutical medicine. An osteo aims to restore normal function and stability of joints to help the body heal itself through, mobilisation of joins, soft tissue massage and stretching techniques.
An osteopath performs a range of treatments using non-invasive manual therapy, soft tissue massage, physical manipulation, assisted stretched and prescribed exercises with the aim to reduce pain and support the body’s natural ability to heal itself, essentially helping a person regain their functioned needs, pain free.
One misconception of osteopathy is that we only treat the spine, however, we are highly trained to diagnose and help with a variety of muscular, joint, and medical conditions, as well as help ease the worry and anxiety which go hand in hand with injury and pain. Here are just a few of the common conditions we see day in and out of the clinic: Musculoskeletal pain, Neck and back pain, Neurological pain such as sciatica, pins and needles, joint pain including hips, knees, ankles, shoulders, elbows, and wrists. Stress related tension and headaches, postural related tension and pain, restricted mobility, occupational injuries, sports injuries and post operative rehabilitation.
The difference between a Chiropractor and an Osteopath, is that Chiropractors are primarily focused on the spine, were Osteopaths concentrate on the body as a whole.
 Osteopathic medicine isn’t medicine in itself, we use manual techniques and teach the patient to rehabilitate themselves.
