Physical manipulation, stretching and massage
Osteopathy has a narrower focus than Physiotherapy, but plays a valuable role in treating pain. Osteopaths will use physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, relieve muscle tension, enhance blood supply to tissues and generally help the body to heal.
Common areas for intervention
At the clinic we regularly employ osteopathy for:
- back pain.
- neck pain.
- shoulder pain.
- pelvis, hip and leg problems.
- muscle and joint pain.
Treating the root cause
As with all treatments at the clinic the aim is always to identify the root cause of a problem, while at the same time providing relief.
