What does osteopathy involve?
There are a lot of misconceptions around what an osteopath does. In short, osteopathy is a system of manual medicine. It focuses on diagnosing and treating disorders of the musculoskeletal system, which includes your bones, joints, muscles and nerves. As an osteopath in Docklands, I can help patients of all ages with a range of issues, and I do this using a variety of techniques that include stretching, massage, mobilisation and joint manipulation. I consider your whole body – not just the symptom. Sometimes, you may experience pain in one area that’s related to something that has occurred elsewhere in the body. That’s why it’s important to consider how everything is working, not just one element. While every ‘body’ is unique, most acute cases will require 3-5 treatments in order to gain the full effects.
So how can I help you?
I take a holistic approach in all cases to provide effective treatment as well as advice which can help you to prevent further problems. I offer osteopathic treatment for a wide range of issues, including:
- Postural issues that regularly arise among teenagers and office workers
- Whiplash following a minor car accident or similar
- Musculoskeletal problems, such as those from being seated all day or always on your feet
- Pregnancy-related pain
- Sports injuries including tennis elbow
- Pelvic pain
- Scoliosis and growth pains in children and teens
- Disc irritation
- Neck tension and headaches
