Osteopathy is a way of detecting, treating, and preventing health problems by moving, stretching, and massaging a person’s muscles and joints. By positively affecting and balancing the nervous system, which is in close relationship with all of the other systems of the body, manual osteopathy is very helpful in the resolution of many health conditions.
Osteopaths use physical manipulation, stretching, and massage with the aim of:
‣ Increasing the mobility of joints
‣ Relieving muscle tension
‣ Enhancing the blood supply to tissues
‣ Helping the body to heal
‣ They use a range of techniques, but not drugs or surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions
No, Osteopathy is generally regarded as a safe treatment, although the patient may experience side effects such as mild to moderate soreness or pain in the treatment area.
Osteopathy is a way of detecting, treating, and preventing health problems by moving, stretching, and massaging a person’s muscles and joints. Osteopathy is based on the principle that the wellbeing of an individual depends on their bones, muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue functioning smoothly together.
Most patients need 3 to 5 treatment sessions to re-establish normal mobility in their body (although symptom reduction happens more quickly) and some complex cases may need more sessions.
Following factors help in faster recovery :
‣ Try to rest, especially after treatment.
‣ Ice the affected areas to reduce localized inflammation.
‣ Reduce stress – in 90% of my cases, emotional stress and strain, if not the primary cause of a patient’s symptoms, will make them worse.
‣ Do the exercises.
