As you can imagine this is one of the questions we are asked most when people first get in touch with us. Although people have often heard of the term osteopathy they often don’t know what it really entails and the range of treatments that it can include. Whilst osteopathy is most commonly linked to back pain treatment not many people know that it can also treat headaches, sports injuries and even poor sleep.
Osteopathy for everyone
You might have heard about osteopathy and be wondering what it actually involves. At the Three Valleys Osteopathic Clinic I provide structural osteopathy that works through the neuro-muscuo-skeletal system, which focuses mostly on muscles and joints. I pay special attention to how the internal organs affect and are affected by that system. Osteopaths use gentle massage and manipulation to help bring your body gently back to health. I can also provide lifestyle, specific exercises and guidance on posture too.
Osteopathy is complementary to other medical practices and can be used to treat a wide range of conditions from chronic back pain to pregnancy related joint issues. There is no age limit on who can benefit from osteopathy and I have worked with clients of all ages.
