Osteopathy considers the body as a unit (AT Still). We look at the body as one then narrow into where you have discomfort, pain and dysfunction. We specialise in treating muscles, joints and nerve impingements. We treat these pathologies using soft tissue techniques, articulation, spinal and extremity manipulation/ adjustment (where the joint can make an audible click) and rehabilitation exercises.
What to expect in your first appointment:
We will be asking questions about your lifestyle, work and medical history. Followed by a postal examination where we look at the feet, knees, pelvis and spine. Depending on your symptoms we will then perform special test to determine the diagnosis. Once we have concluded a diagnosis we will treat the affected area (in some cases we may refer you to your doctor if your diagnosis is something that we can not treat using manual therapy) .
What to wear? There will be an examination so wear appropriate underwear that you are comfortable in, alternatively you can wear loose shorts.
What to bring? Due to Covid please bring your own towel.
