Manual therapy to enhance and restore health...

Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a musculoskeletal manual therapy that is designed to enhance and restore health and musculoskeletal function.  It is a unique ‘hands-on’ approach for the diagnosis and treatment of all kinds of foot and ankle pain, discomfort, as well as immobility. It reduces the stress on your body and also prevents issues from re-occurring. Osteopathy’s main strength lies in the unique way the patient is assessed from a mechanical, functional, and postural standpoint with the manual methods of treatment applied to suit the needs of the individual patient. 

 It involves massage, repetitive movements, stretching, manipulation and/or mobilisation. Usually, most of the osteopathic treatments are soft, gentle and also relaxing. Osteopathic treatment uses techniques for general treatment of the soft tissues (connective tissue, muscles, tendons, and ligaments) along with mobilisation of specific joints as well as soft tissues.  

Osteopathy is not only effective to relieve pain locally, but it also helps to identify the true cause behind the sharp pain or discomfort in your feet and ankles. In this way, the patient can enjoy the long-lasting effects of osteopathic treatment.

Osteopathy can then help with conditions such as  sciatica, arthritis, joint pain, sports injuries, and other knee, ankle, and foot problems.

Also, osteopathic treatments may vary from person to person, depending on the condition or injury of each individual patient.

At the Chelsea clinic we assess each patient on an individual basis, and only after a thorough assessment, will we decide together, on whether osteopathic treatment is suitable for you, and your presenting condition.
