Osteopaths believe that a person's health is dependent upon the correct structure of their body. An Osteopath's work is to correct the structure to improve health and relieve pain. We treat all muscular-skeletal discomfort, including back pain & joint pains of all kinds, headaches (cervicogenic) and migraines; muscle spasms, Sciatica, Neuralgias, Fibromyalgia, sports injuries, circulatory problems, cramps, digestive problems and many others; and have the training to be able to accurately assess and diagnose your discomfort as well as screen for potential health problems. We are also happy to look at your physical structure in relation to your general health or health problem from which you may suffer.
Osteopaths restore the natural function of the body through manipulation, mobilization, exercise and more gentle forms of rebalancing known as 'Cranial Osteopathy'. With Cranial Osteopathy we can treat the same problems as through manipulation but there is an emphasis put on the overall health of the structure and the work is especially gentle.
People find that the relaxing nature of this work helps with stress and therefore helps with many related health issues. We also see a lot of children and babies with a variety of problems. Please feel free to contact us to discuss whether Osteopathy may be of help to you.
