What does osteopathic treatment involve?
We require our patients to come in for an initial consultation with our osteopath at our osteopath clinic London W1. This appointment is to conduct a full physical examination as well as to gather pertinent information regarding the patient’s full case history. Only once the osteopath has all the relevant information can a diagnosis be made.
Our osteopath will also spend time observing posture and the patient’s movements. Also important is examining muscles and joints to identify any abnormalities within the musculoskeletal structures.
What treatments are used in osteopathic care?
For many patients, a combination of treatment techniques is used to restore balance in the body and provide relief from symptoms. Osteopathy is concerned with enhancing the health and function of the musculoskeletal system. Osteopathy is a holistic approach based on the main principle that no system in the body works in isolation – all structures are interconnected.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to osteopathic care. Which treatment techniques are used will depend mainly on the type of condition each individual patient has. Treatment plans are tailored to ensure patients benefit from an improved quality of life.
Our osteopathic treatment plans can include:
Muscle and connective tissue stretching
Deep tissue massage
Gentle traction and manipulation
Our osteopath is also well-experienced in using the Perrin technique. This technique is highly effective in treating patients experiencing symptoms of fatigue-related conditions. These conditions include myalgic encephalitis (ME), long COVID, chronic fatigue (CFS) and fibromyalgia.
We offer the following treatments too; specific adjusting technique (SAT) and visceral osteopathy.
What can osteopathy do for you?
Osteopathic treatment can provide numerous sought-after benefits.
It eases symptoms caused by tension in the body. The build-up of tension in the body can result in pain in the structure as well as headaches.
It improves mobility in the joints. Often in old age, joint mobility can be a problem. Movement can be painful which means freedom of movement can be a challenge.
It provides support for the spine. Not many people realise that bad posture placing unwanted pressure on the spine can lead to other health complications. In order to avoid these problems it is worthwhile to seek ways to support the spine.
It also encourages faster healing. Can manipulating musculoskeletal structures really help in getting the body to heal more quickly? Yes, because the techniques also help improve blood supply in the body. Better blood flow will mean better delivery of oxygen and nutrients in the body.
