Osteopathy is the process of restoring muscle elasticity, enhancing blood supply to the affected areas and relieving tension in affected muscles. Whether your pain has been caused by injury or another medical condition, we will help provide long-lasting pain relief.
If you are suffering with any back pain, neck pain or arthritis pain - osteopathy is an effective treatment which may provide significant relief. It is an established, popular system of diagnosis and treatment which has to be undertaken by qualified professionals.
In order to practise professional osteopathy in the UK, you must be registered with The General Osteopathic Council. This is a governing body which ensures all Osteopaths are well-informed of the latest regulations and standards. It also means Osteopaths have to partake in regular assessments to ensure their skills are up to date.
If you are looking for an experienced Osteopath - Mark Walsh has been qualified for over 25 years. He is fully accredited by the General Osteopathic Council (GosC) and the Institute of Osteopathy. Osteopathy is a relatively gentle treatment which includes manual techniques such as stretching, manipulation and soft tissue techniques. Osteopathy aims to increase mobility, relieve tension and enhance blood supply to the affected area. It works to reduce the body's inflammatory responses and ultimately reduce pain. The treatment itself should not be painful. It may involve clicking if you are happy with this.
Your first consultation will last around 30 minutes. In your first appointment, we will discuss your medical history, symptoms and general health. This is necessary to determine whether a GP referral is necessary. Then all relevant joints and muscles will be examined and you will be treated.
The treatment aims to reduce muscle spasms, inflammation and provide pain relief. We use a range of the following techniques:
Manipulation - If you are comfortable, you may hear and feel some clicking.
Articulation - A range of gentle joint movements.
Soft tissue - Light to firm pressure applied to relevant muscle tissues.
Your first consultation is just £49 (including treatment) and thereafter is £46 per treatment.
