Osteopathy in Alderley Edge and Heaton Moor
Osteopathy is a preventative and corrective therapy focusing on disorders of the musculo-skeletal system. Osteopaths use a highly developed sense of touch to identify areas of weakness or strain throughout the body. Treating these restores the body's natural ability to heal itself.
Osteopathic treatment is suitable for all ages. It compromises a number of different techniques including the trademark manipulation, soft tissue stretching and joint articulation. Remedial exercise and postural advice routinely given. Chronic problems may require ongoing treatment but most acute problems are corrected in 4-6 treatments or less.
Osteopathy is very effective in treating a variety of conditions listed below:
. Joint and muscle aches- Poor posture puts strain on joints and muscles and the effects of this are accumulative leading to impaired movement and eventually pain and injury. Osteopathic palpation and techniques reverse this process.
. Headaches- Cervicogenic or Tension headaches are the commonest form of headache and often mistaken for migraine. These are successfully treated using Osteopathy.
. Symptoms of minor Disc injuries and appropriate referral for scans/ Orthopaedic consult when needed.
. Symptoms caused by road traffic accidents.
. Peripheral Joints incl Shoulder problems, Knees, Elbows and Ankles.
