With a holistic approach to patient care, encompassing the integration of structure and function, emotional and social aspects of health and healing, and a more investigative biopsychosocial approach to pain assessment and management. Osteopaths are uniquely positioned to manage patients with chronic pain.
The key tools for Osteopathic diagnosis include listening to the patient’s history, examining muscles and joints and observing movements. X-rays, scans and other clinical investigations are also used if required. A wide range of gentle, non-invasive manual techniques such as deep tissue massage, joint articulation and manipulation are applied therapeutically.
A core principle behind Osteopathy is the idea that the body is an integrated and indivisible whole, and contains self-healing mechanisms that can be utilised as part of the treatment. No part of the body works, or can be considered, in isolation. Relevant psychological and social factors also form part of the process of patient diagnosis.
Osteopathic treatment is for everyone from young to old, to all family members and can help with a wide and varied range of conditions including:
