Osteopathy is a hands-on approach for treating a variety of issues including;

 

  • Back, neck, shoulder, knee, hip, foot pain and issues

  • Joint impingements

  • Nerve Pain

  • Work and posture related aches and pain

  • Sports injuries

  • Pregnancy related aches and pains

  • Headaches and migraines 

  • Arthritic and auto immune conditions

  • Sciatica

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Rotator Cuff injuries

  • Whiplash

 

Treatment involves physical manipulation and massage of the muscle tissues, bones, organs, circulatory and lymphatic fluids and nerves. All of which aims to treat the body as a whole and appreciates the uniqueness of everyone. This helps correct the underlying issues as a one size fits all approach is unlikely to yield long term results.

 

Our body has the innate ability to heal itself when conditions are optimal. However, our habits, lifestyle and stress factors can thwart our body’s ability to heal efficiently. I do not ‘fix’ your pain - my role is to facilitate your body’s ability to function well and restore equilibrium through Osteopathic techniques and give advice for healthy changes; this includes exercises/movements, diet and improving sleep quality. To put it simply; you cannot get better in the environment that made you sick and for a long term change to occur, I encourage anyone in my care to be active not passive in the process e.g making better health choices because they really do make an impact! 

 

I collaborate with movement and exercise instructors, Psychologists and other healthcare practitioners to enable the best outcome. In some instances, you may be referred for imaging and/or scans.

 

At your first session, an in-depth examination takes place, looking at your individual physicality, lifestyle and enquiring how the presenting issue came to be.  This identifies triggers and therefore the underlying causes preventing your body from working optimally.

 

It is important to note that often the area of pain is not where the issue is coming. This is due to our vast, wondrous and complex bodily systems. Therefore should be viewed our body’s cry for a change.  

 

I understand that pain can go beyond the physical and impact emotional well-being. Pain effects our ability to do the things we love and be our best selves. Goal setting and empathy is an integral part of my practice to help you become more integrated, embodied, calm and centred.
