An osteopath will look at your body in a holistic way, to work out the cause of your pain. Osteopaths believe that everything in the body is there for a reason, and is underpinned by three philosophies: 1) Structure governs function (meaning that the structure of the body is there for a purpose, for a function). 2) The rule of the artery is supreme – if we normalise blood flow in the body, we will stimulate healing as blood delivers oxygen and metabolites necessary for cell repair. 3) The body produces its own medicines, and is capable of self-healing if given the right conditions.
During your first treatment we will take a case history. This involves asking you questions about how your injury/pain occurred, when it occurred, which things make it worse, and which things make it better. We will also ask you about sports, work and hobbies that you do that might affect your condition. We will also ask about your previous medical history, such as serious illnesses, or previous similar problems. After this, we will do a physical examination. This includes looking at your muscles and bone structure, posture, and checking your range of movement. We might ask you to bend, side-bend, or rotate to check how mobile your joints are. We will also palpate your muscles to determine how tight they are.
Once the examination is complete, we will discuss with you what the diagnosis is, and how the condition is most effectively treated. Assuming that no further tests or examinations are required, treatment will then commence, and usually involves manual hands-on therapy.
Please do consider seeing our expert and friendly team!
