What can Osteopaths treat?

What to expect

A first appointment is longer than subsequent appointments to allow adequate time to listen and ask questions about your problem and other health related questions. The information you provide will be confidential.

With your consent the Osteopath will perform a physical examination. This is likely to involve the Osteopath touching the areas of your body that are experiencing pain and asking you to move around. They may also look at scans and reports if these are available.

It is likely that the Osteopath will ask you to dress down to your underwear in order to see and touch the areas of the body causing concern. Tell your osteopath if you are uncomfortable about this as the Osteopath may be able to suggest clothing such as close fitting garments that will enable them to work effectively without making you feel uncomfortable. You should expect privacy to undress and a towel will be provided, so please do discuss this.

You are welcome to bring someone with you into the examination room if this puts you at ease.

Sport And Remedial Massage Therapy

Sport And Remedial Massage therapy uses physical manipulation of soft tissues to treat, manage and help prevent soft tissue dysfunction and associated pain. A Sport And Remedial Massage Therapist can also offer supportive advice about exercise and training.

Remedial Massage

Remedial Massage considers the issues that cause dysfunction of soft tissue that can affect muscles, ligaments and tendons. The majority of general aches and pains that are caused by lifestyle stresses are minor soft tissue conditions and can have a good result from Remedial Massage Therapy.

Sports Massage

This is a specialty within remedial massage that uses the same range of clinical skills. Many ‘so called’ sports injuries have much to do with an athlete’s posture and / or other factors outside of their sport, and the distinction between the two is often unclear. The real difference with Sports massage focuses on your recovery from training and the early identification and treatment of potential soft tissue problems. With a thorough assessment of the condition of the athlete’s soft tissues through massage, the Therapist can monitor the response to training. This can allow the athlete to ‘fine-tune’ their training to avoid injury and enhance performance.
