How does osteopathy work?

Osteopaths work with their hands using a wide range of manual techniques according to the individual's age, physique and particular problem. Techniques range from:

  • Soft-tissue stretching techniques to release muscle tension
  • Gentle articulations to realign and improve joint mobility
  • Mobilisations and gentle manipulation to increase the range of movement of a joint
  • Cranial treatment, which given its gentle nature is very suitable for babies but can benefit anyone
  • Neuromuscular release techniques, which allow a contracted muscle to release and free a restricted nerve supply
  • Lymphatic drainage techniques to improve circulation throughout your body and enhance your immune system

Health advice and exercises may also be given to help to reduce your symptoms and improve your health and quality of life
