Osteopathy treats the cause, not the symptoms. Osteopathic Manual Practitioners assess and treat your body as a whole; seeking to identify areas of the body that are not functioning optimally then gently easing these restrictions so that normal function can resume.
Osteopathic Manual Practitioners use a variety of hands-on therapies to identify any stress or restriction within the body, including postural and joints restrictions to the circulation of fluids.
Osteopathic therapy is not exclusive to one demographic. Osteopathic clients include infants to the elderly, athletes and weekend warriors, pregnant women and those trying to concieve, manual workers and office professionals.
Clients seek treatment from an Osteopath for a wide variety of conditions, including back pain, joint pain, changes to posture caused by driving or a work strain, the pain of arthritis, and sports injuries.
Some examples of the most common problems presented to an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner include (but not limited to):
Spinal pain (neck pain and lower back pain)
Headaches and Migraines
Pain resulting from motor vehicle accidents (Whiplash)
Pain resulting from repetitive use
Pain resulting from sports injuries
Discomfort associated with pregnancy and birth
Neurological syndromes (including carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica)
Digestive disorders (including constipation, bloating, indigestion)
Genitourinary problems (including recurrent urinary tract infections and incontinence)
Chronic infectious disease (fatigue)
Respiratory illnesses (including asthma, recurrent chest infections and allergies)
Ear nose and throat problems (including chronic and recurrent ear infections, sinusitis and tinnitus)
