What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a drug free, non-invasive manual medicine, focusing on total body health. Osteopaths achieve this by focusing on the relationship between the structure and function of the body as a whole, which includes the joints, muscles and spine. The aim of Osteopathy is to have a positive affect on the body’s nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems, and overcome the causes of pain and imbalance in the body.
Osteopathic treatment is “hands on”, gentle and efficient whilst minimising the number of visits required. The Osteopathic holistic approach ensures that your Osteopath will never focus on one area, but all regions relating to your condition.
Osteopaths treat back pain, headaches, migraines, neck pain, sciatica, sports injuries, joint pain and dysfunction, nerve pain, pregnancy related pain, frozen shoulder, neuromuscular pain.
During your first visit, Shaun will take a thorough medical history to ensure a safe and effective treatment. A physical examination and treatment will follow. If an injury, Shaun will assess you for ACC at your fist appointment, which will reduce the client fee.
