Osteopaths treat holistically, meaning they treat the whole person, recognizing that there is an important link between the structure of the body and how it functions. Your osteopath may look at other areas of your body that may be contributing to your symptoms. For example, if you have a sore knee, your osteopath may assess how this pain relates to other areas of your body and may, therefore, also treat your ankle, hip, pelvis or lower back.
Osteopaths can treat any musculoskeletal injury, from neck and lower back pain, acute injuries such as an acute ankle sprain, or more chronic injuries such as shoulder pain, or postural and repetitive strain. Osteopaths employ a wide range of treatment techniques, which can include massage, stretching, myofascial trigger point dry needling, mobilization and/or manipulation.
Each injury is unique so after a thorough assessment, your osteopath will work out which treatment approach is appropriate for you.
