A fully confidential history is taken on your first visit. If appropriate, questions on lifestyle, work or relevant medical history may be discussed.
A standing postural assessment is carried out. It is preferable to wear light clothing to help observation and aid your clinical diagnosis.
We assess, diagnose and treat conditions of the whole body using our hands. This may include massage to tight muscles, mobilisation to stiff or misaligned joints, cranial Osteopathy or Western Acupuncture. It may be necessary to liaise further with your GP or Consultant but we will always request your consent first.
Treatment is then specifically tailored to improve the FUNCTION of the structures in question. Promoting your body's natural healing potentiol without painkillers.
Patients typically present with pain, usually from:
1. An accident ie. Falling over or lifting an object.
2.Due to the silent, gradual build up of tension that they did not know was 'brewing' then becoming a sudden, significant pain triggered by an everyday action.
By identifying and preventing the silent, slow build up of gradual tension in muscles and joints, it allows you to keep control your health.
THE ABSENCE OF PAIN DOES NOT
MEAN YOU ARE HEALTHY!!
Consider Dental checkups:
We all accept the dentist or hygienist can monitor your oral health and detect early signs of decay or disease. Treatment is therefore preventative.
