Conditions Treated

Osteopathy will assess the whole body, not just the back. It treats people in mild or acute pain and with severe or chronic problems.

Osteopathy uses manual methods of treatment consisting of soft tissue massage, passive movements of the joints and if appropriate gentle manipulations. It is effective for many muscular-skeletal problems such as:

  • Back Pain
  • The pain of arthritis
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Pain associated with change in posture during pregnancy
  • Sports injuries such as joint and muscle strains
  • Occupational injuries or strains releated to work posture
  • Headaches caused by tension, posture or whiplash

Mother & Baby

Osteopaths are highly skilled and undergo a minimum of 4 years training. Gentle osteopathic techniques are perfectly safe at most stages of pregnancy. The Cranial Osteopathic approach is a particular gentle way of working with the body’s own natural mechanism for releasing and rebalancing tensions, without force. Osteopathy can help with easing some of the physical discomforts of pregnancy and preparing for the demands of labour.

The emotional strain of pregnancy followed by the physical stress of the birth often leaves the body with a feeling of being "pushed down" and "collapsed". Postural problems that develop at this time can cause problems later in life.

Frequently the mother suffers back and neck pain in the weeks and months following the birth, and is too busy to seek help. Freeing and balancing the body as soon as possible after the birth helps the mother cope with the new demands of her baby.

Compression of the baby's cranium at birth can lead to developmental problems. Injury to the neck during birth can cause distress which disturbs sleep and pregnant_tummydigestion. Birth trauma can be treated all through life but the sooner it is addressed, the faster and more complete the response.

If you require Cranial Osteopathy please book an appointment with Ella Martin.
