Osteopathy & Chiropractic

Osteopathy & Chiropractic 

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a ‘whole body’ treatment that centres around the principle that to achieve general wellbeing, all the bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue in our bodies must work harmoniously together. 

Osteopathy is a manual treatment, meaning a practitioner will use their hands to stretch and massage the body to increase mobility and relieve muscle tension. It is an effective treatment for several conditions including lower back pain, neck pain, arthritis, sports injuries and pain associated with bad posture.

Visceral osteopathy is concentrated on the body’s organs and central cavities and involves the Osteopath gradually manipulating the viscera and connective tissue surrounding internal organs to increase pliability and improve general movement..

Cranial osteopathy focuses on lightly manipulating the skull to identify the pulse surrounding the brain. It is used to treat a wide range of problems across the entire body, not just the head. Cranial osteopathy is particularly gentle, which is why many practitioners use it to treat babies and children.

What is Chiropractic Treatment?

Chiropractic treatment is another non-surgical treatment option that focuses on the relationship between the nerves, muscles and skeleton. Chiropractic treatment typically focuses on the patient’s spine and most people will seek out a Chiropractor for problems with their lower back.

The philosophy of Chiropractic treatment is that joint misalignment causes back pain as it compromises the body’s central nervous system. Treatment involves spinal manipulation, and a Chiropractor will often make small ‘adjustments’ to the position of the lumbar vertebrae to relieve pressure and alleviate pain. These adjustments are what causes the familiar cracking or popping noise associated with Chiropractic treatment. The cracking noises are caused by small pockets of gas in your joint fluid, and although they can be noisy, treatment should never be painful.
