What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a well-established natural approach
to healthcare and has been around since the 1870s. It is based on a unique system of clinical diagnosis that takes the whole body into account. It is a very safe form of manual treatment and uses no drugs.
Our practitioners have a minimum of 4 years full-time osteopathic education studying the human body, joints, muscles, back, neck and limbs, as well as all the medical sciences.
When you visit us, one of our Osteopaths will assess you and your symptoms in a holistic way in relation to your medical history, any previous accidents or injuries you may have had, your occupation, sports and hobbies, your posture and lifestyle, as well as your diet and your emotional wellbeing. Our Osteopathic assessment is detailed and thorough.
In treatment we use our hands to investigate the underlying causes of your pain, and draw from a wide variety of hands-on techniques in order to give effective help. We also give lifestyle advice where appropriate. A caring approach and attention to the needs of the individual is a characteristic of our clinic and is important throughout the treatment we provide.
People come to our clinic with back pain, neck pain, joint and muscle problems, and very many find that Osteopathy helps them.
Osteopathy has one of the best safety records
of any medically related profession. We at GC Osteopathy are trained to recognise conditions that might make osteopathic treatment inadvisable, and in such cases we will refer you for appropriate medical attention.
Osteopathic treatment offers considerably more than just "Spinal Manipulation" or "Massage with Manipulation"; in fact our treatment techniques are adapted to each person at each visit. We are skilled and trained to use muscle or connective tissue stretching, rhythmic joint movements, muscle energy technique, cranial osteopathy, a range of massage techniques, joint manipulation, positional release, myofascial release and other gentle release techniques. In each session we choose from a broad spectrum of techniques in order to bring about the very best treatment results for each person, each time. Osteopathy is a natural remedy for your problem.
Osteopathy not only gives pain relief,
but people can notice improvements to their posture, may cope better with stress, and some people report increased energy levels.
