Osteopathy in Hertfordshire for all the family
Osteopathy, physiotherapy and chiropractic are all manual therapies which deal with pain and problems with the musculo-skeletal system.
They may all use similar techniques, but what makes each profession different is the underlying philosophy and principles which will guide the practitioner in diagnosis and treatment. All osteopaths are registered and regulated by the General Osteopathic Council.
Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. It works with the structure and function of the body, and is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together.
This is achieved using hands on techniques including soft tissue manipulation, articulation and/or high velocity thrusts. The techniques used will depend entirely on the presenting condition and will be discussed with the patient as a part of the management plan.
The benefits of osteopathic treatment include:
- Pain reduction
- Easing of symptoms
- Improved range of motion
- Improved circulation
- Improved posture
