Forest Hill Osteopaths

Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a distinct hands-on treatment which is complementary to orthodox medicine.

It is safe and natural, and based on each patient’s individual needs, age and healthcare.

Four out of five people suffer with back pain at some point in their lives. Many others suffer with spine or joint problems, and these may be felt as headaches, neck and shoulder tensions and other aches and pains.

We can identify and treat problems occurring through injury, faulty posture and occupational stresses.

The condition of your bones, joints, muscles and soft connective tissue affect your body as a whole, so on your first visit we will ask you to describe all of your problem areas in full.

Your practitioner will then examine and discuss how osteopathy can help you.

We will advise on what level of activity in the home, garden, sports arena or work place is right for you, and explain how to perform tasks safely and efficiently.

You may also need postural advice, individual exercises or temporary support to relieve pain, and you may be shown how to protect yourself from future injury such as lifting and carrying techniques.

The treatment you receive will range from a very gentle massage to stronger stretching and manipulation techniques which help your body to restore normal function. This may include short sharp movements to free restricted joints and give you more rapid pain relief.
