OSTEOPATHY - NOT ONLY
FOR BACK PAIN

About Osteopathy and the osteopaths in our Central London Osteopathy and Sports Injury Clinics.

Osteopathy is a way of detecting and treating damaged arts of the body such as muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints. When the body is balanced and efficient, just like a well tuned engine, it will function with the minimum of wear and tear, leaving more energy for daily living.
Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment with which the osteopath works with the structure and function of the body.
Osteopaths believe that maintenance of good mechanical function is essential to good health and that problems in the framework of the body can disturb the circulatory system or nerves to any part of the body, and affect any aspect of health. Osteopaths work to restore the structure and function of the body to a state of balance and harmony, so helping the whole person. Osteopathy is also a preventative therapy. A regular service session two to four times a year helps keep your body stress free and in good working order.

What should I expect from my visit to an osteopath?
Osteopaths consider each person as an individual : On arrival for your first visit you will be asked to fill out a form with your relevant details., then your osteopath will spend time taking a detailed medical history including important information about your lifestyle and diet. You will normally be asked to undress to your underwear or similar and perform a series of simple movements to assess which joints are restricted and what to what extent.
With their hands osteopaths identify abnormalities within the human structure and function.
This will help your osteopath reaching a full diagnosis and treatment plan tailored to your needs.
They then facilitate the body's ability to heal itself through a variety of stretching, mobilizing and manipulative techniques.
With added exercises and health advice, osteopaths help reducing the symptoms and improve your health and quality of life. Osteopathy is also a preventative therapy. A regular service session two to four times a year helps keep your body stress free and in good working order.

Osteopathy and the treatment of painful conditions:
Osteopaths can diagnose the cause of pain and help to ease it by reducing tissue inflammation. The osteopaths treatment methods range from massage of muscles and connective tissues to manipulation and stretching of joints.
This helps to reduce muscle spasm, to increase mobility and to create a healthier state in which damaged tissues can heal. Much long-term, recurrent pain is caused by degenerative changes to the body's framework. Nobody can reverse this process of ageing, but your osteopaths treatment may still ease pain. Pain control is an important part of our treatment in the Central London Osteopathy and Sports Injury Clinics and our osteopaths give guidance on simple self-help methods to use at home.
The skilled techniques of osteopathy can often allow you a speedy return to normal activity.
If you have had a pain for a long time, and other forms of treatment have not helped, osteopathic treatment can be beneficial, although it may require time and patience.
