Osteopathy is a form of physical therapy that specialises in the diagnosis, management, treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal and other related disorders.
Osteopathy recognises pain and disability often stems from abnormalities in our body’s structure and function. Osteopaths diagnose and treat problems with muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints to help the body’s natural healing ability. The general principle is that if the muscles, ligaments and bones are in balance then the body will function with ease. When there is imbalance in the structure of our body it leads to dysfunction, which we commonly feel as pain, stiffness, swelling and weakness.
Osteopathy uses a range of techniques including massage, stretching and manipulation to help restore the body back to optimum function.
- Increase joint mobility
- Relief of muscle tension
- Enhance blood supply to tissues
- Help the body to heal naturally
Our resident Osteopath is Louise Rhys-Davies who graduated from the British School of Osteopathic Medicine in 2006. Since qualifying Louise has worked in private clinics in Herts, Bucks and Essex and has completed further training in Pilates which gives her an added tool to help patients with their recovery. You don't need to be referred by your GP to see an osteopath privately.
