Osteopathic treatment aims to manipulate joint range of movement and balance tissue and muscle mechanics in order to relieve pain. All our Osteopaths at Parkview Clinic are GOsC & BOA registered so they are able to complete a full examination and treat effectively a wide range of muscular-skeletal problems.
Osteopaths approach to treatment involves assessing the whole body. An osteopath will look beyond pain in one certain area and take into account other dysfunctions and compensations from other areas contributing to the issue. The key principles are based on all part of the body functioning together smoothly. If one part of the body is restricted, the rest of the body must adapt and compensate, leading to inflammation and pain to a certain area. Osteopath treatment assists the body with pain minimisation, reduced stress and improved mobility.
An osteopath's treatment may include a wide range of techniques depending on your age and fitness. These might be gentle manipulations, soft tissue massage, joint articulation, muscle stretching and HVT manipulation where the joint can produce a cracking / popping sounds. These treatments help relieve muscle tension, enhance the blood supply and stimulate the body's own healing mechanisms. The benefits of osteopathic treatments are a general improvement in mobility and structural stability of the whole body. Osteopath treatments are also beneficial for the circulatory, nervous and lymphatic systems to promote a more balanced body and better health throughout the body. Our osteopaths can also provide advice on posture, exercise and how to prevent symptoms from reoccurring.
