Osteopathy is a safe and natural approach to healthcare, complementary to other medical practices. It is suitable for almost anyone and can contribute to alleviating an enormous range of conditions.

Osteopathy can treat a wide variety of problems including:

  1. Back and neck pain
  2. Whiplash injuries
  3. Sports injuries
  4. Tension headaches
  5. Joint problems
  6. Frozen shoulder
  7. Pain associated with osteoarthritis
  8. Pain related to pregnancy

And much more

Osteopathy focuses on detecting and treating problems within the musculo-skeletal system (the bones, muscles, joints, ligaments and connective tissues) and the way in which this inter-relates to the body as a whole.  When the body is balanced and efficient, just like a well tuned engine, it will function with the minimum of wear and tear, leaving more energy for living.

Osteopaths consider each person as an individual. Utilising a highly developed sense of touch, they identify problem areas of the body. Using gentle stretching and mobilising techniques as well as manipulating joints, an osteopath works with the body to create the perfect conditions to facilitate the healing process.

Osteopaths use soft and deep tissue massage, stretches, joint mobilisations, manipulations and various other techniques to gently and safely bring about healthy changes.  Osteopaths also promote nutrition and fitness to sustain healthy body systems.

If you are unsure if your problem can be helped by osteopathy just contact us.

Claire also practices dry needling (also known as modern or western acupuncture) it is used for the treatment of muscle pain and dysfunction.  Dry needling focuses on releasing muscle tension by treating specific trigger points, alleviating nerve tissue irritation by reducing the nerve impulse, or stimulating local blood supply where it may be naturally poor, for instance at the junction between tendons or ligaments and bone.

Dry needling is utilized as part of the Osteopathic treatment session. It will not necessarily be used every time and likewise, if you prefer not to be dry needled, just let Claire know.
