Osteopathic treatment

osteopathy holistic approachAn osteopath will assess the patient’s specific needs and symptoms and create a treatment plan that suits the individual. This will very often take into consideration the person’s normal, mechanical and working patterns and how their skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulatory system, connective tissue and internal organs function as a whole body unit. Treatment will then aim to restore the body to normal function, rather than providing a quick localised fix, which may only provide a temporary solution or could in fact make the problem worse.

Treatment can include cranial osteopathy, soft tissue stretching and massage, mobilisation of specific joints and myo-fascial needling. Each patient and their injury is different, so osteopathic treatment will vary.

Osteopaths are well known for treating back-related injuries, but there are a whole host of injuries and conditions that osteopathic treatment may help to remedy, including arthritic pain, shoulder and neck pain, sciatica, repetitive strain injuries, tennis elbow and more.

Pregnancy

The dramatic changes and adaptations to a woman’s body during pregnancy and the birth often lead to aches and pains or may serve to increase underlying issues such as back pain which were already present. Osteopathic treatment at the Willow Clinic will be carefully selected and tailored to each patient and will take great care to maximise the comfort and safety of the developing baby.

Babies and Children

The stresses and strains of a natural birth can place the baby under enormous pressure, particularly the skull. 

There are also stresses and strains on a child as it develops from a baby to a teenager. Some of the issues that arise at this age include:

  • growth related bone pain
  • postural issues
  • back pain
  • headaches
  • spinal asymmetry
  • sporting injuries

You can be assured that Vanessa Fisher, our osteopath at the Willow Clinic, will take a full medical history of the child and be careful to ask both the parent and child questions to fully explore the cause of any presenting issues, before determining the most suitable treatment approach.
