Osteopathy

Osteopathy

Osteopathy can treat a very wide range of conditions, using a diverse and eclectic range of manual techniques including, but not limited to spinal manipulation, joint mobilisation and articulation, lymphatic pumping, neurological mobilisation, neuromuscular technique, muscle energy technique, strain-counterstrain or positional release, functional technique, myofascial release and soft tissue massage. The General Osteopathic Council, the statutory registering body for all osteopaths, recommends osteopathy for a number of musculoskeletal conditions including: back pain, neck pain, sciatica, pain from spondylosis, sacro-ilial joint pain, headaches caused by the neck, repetitive strain injury, changes to posture in pregnancy, postural problems caused by driving or work strain, the pain of arthritis, supraspinatus tendonitis, tennis elbow, sprains and strains, (pseudo) trochanteric bursitis, minor sports injuries.

Laser Therapy

Low Level Laser Therapy

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a scientifically researched therapy developed since the 1960s. It is very useful to treat wounds, lesions, and injuries. It can be used to treat pain, inflammatory conditions and chronic degenerative conditions. It works on the intracellular level to encourage repair and increase the health of the individual cell, often preventing highly stressed cells from dying and restoring normal function.

It has been proven effective and useful in the following conditions: diabetic and venous insufficiency ulcers, arthritis (including rheumatoid arthritis), post-operative pain and healing, non-specific back and neck pain, tendonitis, tymphoedema.

Medical Acupunture

Medical Acupunture

Western Medical Acupuncture is a modern gentle form of acupuncture therapy used to alleviate pain, muscle knots (trigger points), and reduce tension. Medical Acupuncture is a very safe and effective way of addressing tension and muscles aches and can be used either as its own therapy or an excellent addition to other forms of manual therapy such as osteopathy. The British Medical Acupuncture Society suggests that acupuncture is effective in a range of painful conditions and is commonly used for short-term pain relief of chronic low back pain, neck pain, and knee pain from osteoarthritis. There is also evidence that Medical acupuncture can be used for short-term pain relief of tension headaches, migraines, and jaw pain.

Pregnancy & Children

Pregnancy & Children

Paediatric Osteopathy is a branch of Osteopathy that focuses on children of all ages. Many people ask us: “What could possibly be wrong with babies/children?” The answer is complicated, as babies/children can present with many things, for different reasons. To begin with, a traumatic birth could create different compressive forces in an infant’s body which in turn would create distress. Even though babies have elastic tissues, due to their ongoing tissue formation, a forceful/sudden movement during the delivery, can promote growth in a non-comfortable way for them. Continuing, children of all ages, tend to have injuries when playing or during sports, that will need to be attended, rehabbed and given advice, to prevent reoccurrence of symptoms. Teenagers can also present with pains and aches that could be related to their growth or sports, that an osteopath could help them with.

Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy includes various soft tissue techniques that aim to relax the body and mind. By superficial and deep tissue manipulation, massage therapy can help to relieve muscle tension, spasm and aid the recovery of a muscle from a fatigued state by increasing the muscle blood flow.

In this way, it minimises the accumulation of lactic acid, which makes the muscles tight.

Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Taping

Kinesiology tape has been around for a number of years and recently it has been seen on a number of high profile athletes in major sporting events including the Tour de France, Wimbledon and London 2012 Olympics. Kinesiology tape can have positive vascular, mechanical and neurological effects. It is comfortable and flexible allowing for full range of movement and can easily be worn under your clothes. Kinesiology tape limits muscular atrophy, enhances restoration of normal kinetic chain function and decreases compensatory reactions.
