What is Osteopathy/Cranial Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a safe and natural treatment for gentle, effective recovery from injuries and strains. Osteopaths use a range of gentle and traditional techniques to realign the body. Good health is dependent upon the correct alignment of the spine, head and limbs. Osteopathy can be used to treat health problems and to enhance well-being. It is suitable for all ages.  

Cranial Osteopathy uses a highly developed sense of touch to feel subtle changes of tension and tissue quality in the living anatomy of the whole body, and to diagnose areas of strain or dysfunction. 

The osteopath is often drawn to areas in the body that have been affected by past events, such as old accidents and injuries. The body may have learned to compensate for a traumatic event or injury and the patient may be unaware that there is anything wrong, but the effects may still be present and relevant to current symptoms. Cranial osteopathy is a gentle, safe and effective approach to treatment of a wide range of problems in the whole body.

About the Treatment

Our Osteopaths will take a full history of the presenting complaint and will ask about other areas of dysfunction as well as gathering relevant medical history. The patient will then be asked to perform a range of movements so that the Osteopath can see where the restrictions are located, certain tests may be carried out (i.e. reflexes, blood pressure) in order to help them understand and assess your condition. 

They know many different treatment techniques and we will tailor make each treatment for you. These can include; soft tissue massage, joint manipulation, stretching, joint articulation, and gentle cranial manipulation. 

As treatment is hands-on they are effectively getting your body to move differently, you may experience some aches, stiffness and feeling a bit “bruised” afterwards. This is completely normal, but if you are concerned, please do not hesitate to call us so that we can reassure you. 

Advice may be given to you to support the treatment. Prevention may also be discussed relating to posture and lifestyle.
