OSTEOPATHY AND PHYSIOTHERAPY
Osteopathy and Physiotherapy are recognized, established systems of diagnosis and treatment based on the concept that the structure of the body governs its overall function.
By addressing accumulated stresses and strains caused by birth trauma, accidents, posture and daily wear and tear, osteopathy and physiotherapy may restore a body to a state of equilibrium, therefore helping to facilitate the body’s natural healing processes. Osteopathy and physiotherapy recognize that importance of holistic approach in achieving and maintaining good health, and the practitioner will likely consider physical, emotional and lifestyle influences in treatment.
A variety of techniques may be used to treat presenting conditions. These range from rhythmic mobilization and gentle thrusting techniques producing an audible click, to gentle releasing cranial techniques, massage, passive movements, kinetic instruction and remedial exercises.
The osteopath, physiotherapist and patient work together to decide the most favourable course of treatment for the presenting condition.
Our treatments look at the body as a whole taking into consideration every aspect of a body and mind, finding out the cause of a problem and treating accordingly.
A treatment would generally consist of a selection of the following:
• Passive movements
• Exercises – resisted and otherwise
• Rehabilitation Programme
• Kinetic Instruction
