Osteopathy is an established recognised system of diagnosis and treatment that lays its main emphasis on the structural and functional integrity of the body.
Osteopaths use a holistic approach addressing the whole person to remedy the root cause of pain or symptoms experienced within the body. It is distinctive in the fact that it recognises much of the pain and disability we suffer stems from abnormalities in the function of the body structure as well as damage caused to it by disease.
Osteopaths are trained to recognise and treat many causes of pain: we use our hands to discover the underlying causes of pain and use many of the diagnostic procedures used in conventional medical assessment and diagnosis. The main strength of Osteopathy lies in the unique way the patient is assessed from a mechanical, functional and postural stand point and the manual methods of treatment applied to suit the needs of the individual patient.
Sports Injury Rehabilitation
Whether your sports injury is acute or chronic, if pain persists, you should seek a specialist’s opinion because you may be hurt more severely than you think. There are many different types of sports injuries, but certain body parts tend to be more prone to injury than others.
Poor fitness, technique and structural abnormalities also contribute to the development of sport injuries. Prevention being better than cure, we encourage screening for weaknesses that may lead to injury, and through the implementation of strengthening and conditioning exercises, help to eliminate them.
