What does an Osteopath do?

What does an Osteopath do?

Osteopaths and what they do.

osteopathy what 300x300 - What does an Osteopath do?

I have been answering this question over the last seventeen years in a number of ways.

The most simplistic answer is that an Osteopath will help to heal a hurting human (like the alliteration?).
This involves asking questions about someone’s problem, listening to the answers and physically examining people to discover what the root cause is. Then I use my hands to help the body heal.

I aim to explore what is and is not working properly in the body, make adjustments to reduce any barriers to health and find ways to assist the body’s natural healing.

Sometimes your pain is a symptom of the problem, not the centre of it. Many times, pain can be a distraction from what is actually going on, but I always do what I can to reduce the pain first of all.

Some of the ways I can help include various massage techniques to increase blood flow and relax muscles, stretching of the joints and tissues in the area to improve range of movement. I also perform ‘adjustments’ or ‘manipulation’; the cracking or clicking sound that can be achieved by moving joints in a specific way. This also increases blood circulation, causes reflex relaxation of the surrounding area and improves mobility. At times, I will recommend certain stretches or exercises to assist recovery.

My aim is always to reduce your pain as fast as possible, improve your body function over the medium term and give you the tools to keep yourself in good shape over the long term. Treatments often start close together and gradually spread out as the condition improves. The goal for me is to make you independent of treatment, not reliant on regular visits. If I can get you well enough to only drop in once or twice a year for your service and tune-up; I will have done my job right.
