WHY SEE AN OSTEOPATH?
It is the Osteopath's comprehensive approach to healthcare that makes treatment unique. Osteopaths do not look on patients simply as back pain sufferers but as individuals with their own unique requirements for optimum health. Treatment is designed to correct each individual's functional problems in order to stimulate their own natural healing processes. Osteopaths do not simply treat back problems but look at all the factors contributing to a disrupted state of natural health.
Osteopathy is an established, recognised system of diagnosis and treatment that lays it's main emphasis on the structural integrity of the body. It is distinctive in the fact that it recognises much of the pain and disability we suffer stems from abnormalities in the function of the body structure as well as the damage caused to it by disease or accident.
Osteopathy uses many of the diagnostic procedures used in conventional medical assesment and diagnosis. It's main strength, however, lies in the unique way the patient is assessed from a mechanical , functional and postural standpoint and the manual methods of treatment applied to suit the needs of the individual patient.
