What attracts many to Osteopathy, apart from its effectiveness, is that it does not include the use of any drugs, and also because it is a manual therapy that can improve the overall health of an individual over time. Osteo achieves this by manipulating and strengthening the whole musculoskeletal system with a focus on the whole body, not just the area that is painful.
Your Osteopath uses what is termed ‘manual medicine’ meaning that he or she will use their hands to diagnose and treat you with the aim of balancing your body’s nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems. It is often used together with conventional medical treatments, which is why it is classed as a complementary therapy.
Your Osteopath will spend a lot of time and expertise assessing the mobility of your muscles and joints and your problem areas. Your Osteo will test the way body functions as a whole, checking your joints, tendons and ligaments and muscles as well as the function of your nervous system, your circulation, and internal organs. Your Osteo will also ask you questions about your health and lifestyle and take a detailed history of your health and the condition that brought you to the consultation, and then a personalised treatment plan will be devised.
