Initial Osteopathic Consultation

At Body & Health Creation. we use skilled assessment, diagnosis and hands-on techniques to treat common musculoskeletal conditions and injuries.

Our osteopaths treat the body as a whole with a focus on providing both immediate symptomatic relief and achieving long lasting outcomes.

THE OSTEOPATHIC TREATMENT

The treatment itself can vary practitioner to practitioner, but all will involve a hands on approach. Osteopaths have a wide variety of manual techniques they use to treat various complaints.

They include:

  • Soft tissue Massage
  • Stretching
  • Articulation (joints are passively taken through their range of motion by the practitioner)
  • Muscle Energy Techniques (used to lengthen tight, contracted muscles)
  • Counterstrain (releases tight muscles by positioning the affected muscle in a shortened position to stretch the opposing muscles)
  • Manipulations (short, quick movements used to unlock joints and get them moving better)
  • Functional Techniques (gentle mobilisation of joints by easing patterns of stress)
  • Visceral Techniques (used to influence the function of organs)
  • Dry Needling
