Osteopathy is not directed towards treating or curing specific conditions but to treating the whole person, to ensure optimal mechanical function. The mechanical integrity of the body is fundamental to good health and when healthy function is restored symptoms usually reduce.
This is the area in which osteopathy can excel, as Osteopathic treatment can benefit patients with a wide variety of symptoms and conditions by attempting to correct the causes of their particular problems.
Osteopaths are known for treating musculoskeletal problems such as low back pain, neck pain and other joint pain, so Osteopathy has been recommended as a treatment of choice for low back pain by NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) guidelines. In addition to musculoskeletal problems osteopathy can also play an important role in helping to improve and optimise general health. Patients have also found that many other symptoms can benefit from osteopathic treatment which can include sciatica, migraines, headaches, colic, reflux, anterior tongue tie and posterior tongue tie (Ankyloglossia), Frenulectomy and more
Due to the diversity of Osteopathic approaches, Osteopaths are trained to adapt their techniques to provide effective treatment to patients of all ages. Thus all patients requiring treatment can be helped regardless of age or constitution. Nobody is too young, too old, too fragile or too robust to benefit from Osteopathy.
