Osteopathy is based on understanding how the body works, with treatment then tailor made to the individual patient.
Initial Consultation and treatment (£50 to £75 based on 30 to 45 minutes)
I always start with a full case history to establish a clear understanding of what happened and why you are in pain. I then do an assessment of your individual biomechanics. You will be undressed (leaving on underwear) for this with all women wearing gowns. I will examine gait and posture, and palpate the area around the injury to establish an understanding of the full condition The unique system of diagnosis and treatment of Osteopathy lies in our understanding of that makes the body work from a structural viewpoint, and to re-establish balance and pain free function.
Once I have discussed a diagnosis and treatment plan I will then start straight away in relieving your pain. I combine a variety of different techniques depending on what is most suitable for your individual condition.
This includes massage, mobilisation, spinal manipulation, and dry needling acupuncture. Long term support includes dietary and lifestyle advice, exercise prescription and natural remedy prescription from my Naturopathy and Food Science qualifications. Ergonomic Recommendations / work station changes are also provided where needed from my work as a consultant in this area.
Follow up treatments (£50, 30 minutes)
We start by reviewing your progress, what has changed and how the treatment has worked. Subsequent treatment is then focused on removing the last parts of the pain and getting the body to a position where a full recovery can be maintained.
