Our Osteopaths are experienced with and sympathetic to children in pain. Children often respond very quickly to gentle treatment for anything from wry neck to muscular aches and pains that result from 'growth spurts'. Children under 16 usually prefer to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Pain killers are not the only solution for the aches and pains associated with growing old. For more permanent relief it is necessary to eliminate the underlying causes of pain. Osteopathy can also help in reducing pain and stiffness in osteo-arthritis. Treatment is very safe, gentle and relaxing. Over 20% of our patients are elderly and some are even in their 90s.
All our osteopaths are qualified to treat women in various stages of pregnancy. Treatment is obviously very gentle and again safety is a priority.
Periodic treatment during pregnancy can help the body adjust to the increasing weight and changing posture. This can help prevent pain or stiffness occuring and may also lead to an easier delivery. Similarly, after birth a check up is useful to see if the stresses of the delivery and the changes of the body back to normal have disturbed the functioning of the pelvis or lower back. Advice can be given on general posture with particular attention to your spine on handling the new born.
The Osteopaths are experienced in dealing with sports related injuries.
An ultra-sound machine is available for certain conditions.
In addition to looking at the injured part, we also take into account all the factors which may have contributed to the injury, therefore improving the rate of recovery and preventing further episodes.
