About this treatment

Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment which is based on manual therapy and focuses on the muscles and joints.  It takes a whole-person approach, paying attention not only to the painful area but also influencing factors such as posture and lifestyle patterns.

An Osteopath will take a hands-on approach to treatment from the first appointment, using a range of techniques such as massage, medical acupuncture and joint mobilisation or manipulation, which people often refer to as ‘cracking’. The Osteopathic philosophy differs slightly from Chiropractic and Physiotherapy, maintaining that if correct movement exists and the psychology of pain is managed then good health will follow. To maintain this health, our Osteopaths may also discuss posture and prescribe a range of exercises to complement the individual patient needs.

Osteopathy is a safe and appropriate form of treatment for people of all ages, whether dealing with work related pain, sports injuries, guiding an expectant mother through her pregnancy or helping children deal with the demands of their ever-changing bodies. 

Cranial Osteopathy is another form of treatment which is suitable for people of all ages. Due to the subtle nature of the treatment, it is often associated with the treatment of babies and young children. You can find out further information regarding the treatment of expectant mothers and babies here.

Within Physical Balance we offer a wide range of complementary treatment options.  If you have a sports related injury, find out more in our Sports Therapy section and if you feel you are suffering from general tension you may feel Massage is the treatment option you need.
