Osteopathy can provide natural pain relief for back, neck or arthritis pain whether it is caused by injury or medical condition. Osteopathy restores muscle elasticity and enhances blood supply which in turn relieves pain.
Osteopathy is an established, recognised system of diagnosis and treatment which can be used to treat back pain, neck pain and arthritis pain. It is an effective, natural treatment of stiffness in the back, neck and joints.
In order to practice osteopathy in the UK, you must be registered with The General Osteopathic Council. This ensures all Osteopaths are all knowledgeable of the latest standards, regulations and their skills are kept up to date.
Mark Walsh has been a qualified Osteopath for over 25 years. He is fully accredited by the Institute of Osteopathy and General Osteopathic Council (GosC) which is the professional body which governs Osteopathy in Great Britain. Osteopathy is a fairly gentle treatment which includes manual techniques such as manipulation, stretching and soft tissue. It aims to relieve tension, increase mobility and enhance blood supply to the affected area. This all works to reduce the body's inflammatory responses and reduce pain. Treatment should not be painful! It may involve some clicking but only if you are comfortable with this.
Your initial consultation should last approximately 30 minutes. During this time we will discuss your medical history, symptoms and general health. From this information we can deduce whether a GP referral is necessary. Then all relevant joints will be examined and treatment is included.
Treatment aims to reduce inflammation, muscle spasms and provide pain relief. Our most commonly used techniques include:
Articulation - A series of gentle joint movements
Soft tissue - Applying light to firm pressure on relevant muscle tissues
Manipulation - This could be accompanied by a clicking sound and will only be used if the patient is comfortable
Your first consultation is just £49 (including treatment) and thereafter is £46 per treatment.
