Osteopathy clinic based in Uphill, Weston-super-Mare.
Osteopathy is a manual medicine focusing on total body health by treating and strengthening the musculo-skeletal system. It is a whole body approach to healthcare. Osteopaths do not focus on the ‘problem’ but instead use manual techniques to balance the whole body, enhancing and promoting good health and wellbeing.
Osteopaths use a wide variety of hands on techniques which include soft tissue massage and stretching, traction and mobilisation and/or manipulation of specific joints. Each treatment is tailor made to the individual and will depend upon the presentation, health, history, age, occupation and a variety of other factors of a particular patient. Most importantly osteopathic treatment gives the body the opportunity to heal itself by diminishing pain and increasing movement. When this happens all our body systems operate better leading to improved health and a better quality of life.
