The benefits of visiting your osteopath in Chalfont


osteopath in Chalfont


Osteopathy is involved in addressing and treating musculoskeletal disorders using a holistic approach. Rakhee Osteopathy are registered osteopaths in Chalfont and we have over 14 years of experience in excellent osteopathic techniques. Our osteopaths will assess not only the area of the body that may be in pain but the entire body to try and find the cause of your symptoms and pave the way to a better and full recovery. For example, if you present with lower back pain, we will assess the entirety of the spine, hips, pelvis, knees, ankles and feet to determine where the problem could be coming from and aid in the early detection and prevention of further complications.


Musculoskeletal disorders can occur as a result of poor posture, standing or sitting for long periods of time, repetitive strain on a specific area and many other reasons. Sometimes, problems can even arise due to seemingly harmless activities that you may be doing on a regular basis. Our osteopaths in Chalfont use a problem-solving approach to help understand and accurately diagnose the source or cause of your pain. Furthermore, this also helps us to put together an effective treatment plan that you can easily and successfully adhere to allowing for a complete recovery.


What our osteopaths do and how do they help?


A course of treatment with our osteopaths in Chalfont begins with an initial consultation, during which we will find out everything that we need to know in regards to your daily activities, your general overall health, any underlying issues you may have or any medication that you may be on. We are also interested in looking at your history to see if you have had any past trauma or been involved in any accidents that may have had an impact on your musculoskeletal system.


Osteopaths use their hands as diagnostic tools for examining the patient’s muscles and joints to help detect any abnormalities that may be the cause of the pain or discomfort. Visual examination is also very important to make sure that your posture is correct and all your bones are aligned neatly and symmetrically as they should be. This is because musculoskeletal problems can present themselves in many ways, and the knowledge and experience that an osteopath has can make it easy for them to detect certain abnormalities very easily.


They use specialised massage techniques and muscle stretching that help alleviate the symptoms of many musculoskeletal disorders including disc injuries, hypermobility, rheumatism and arthritis. If you are suffering from general aches and pains, then you may also want to consider visiting our osteopath. A combination of gentle manipulation and deep tissue massage alongside professional advice may help you combat the aches and pains of daily life.
