What Is An Osteopath?
Osteopaths are primary health care practitioners who are trained to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal disorders. The philosophy of Osteopathy is to treat the whole person and not just the symptoms. As a result of this, our Osteopaths here at AMC focus on the relationship between the body's structure and function, whilst also recognising the body's ability to heal itself.
Conditions An Osteopath Can Help You With
Osteopaths are commonly recognised for their treatment of musculoskeletal disorders; however they also have a role to play in the management of a number of other conditions. Osteopathy is suitable for almost anyone and can contribute to alleviating an enormous range of conditions including:
- Neck and back pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Joint pain
- Sports injuries
- Arthritic conditions
- Muscle strains and tendonitis
- Work-related and Repetitive strain injuries
- Spinal Pain and 'Sciatica'
Osteopaths can also contribute towards the management of pain due to arthritic conditions, and when used in conjunction with medical treatment, can reduce the severity of many other painful conditions.
Who Can Benefit From An Osteopathy Treatment?
Osteopathy is suited for people of all ages from the very young through to the elderly. Osteopathy benefits all, as it is a way of assisting in keeping healthy and managing conditions that cause muscle and joint pain. Osteopathy may also be beneficial for:
- Better sports or Work Performance
- Improved flexibility
- Better posture
Expecting mothers may also find Osteopathic treatment very beneficial and may help in the reduction of back pain during pregnancy and may also to help prepare the body for birth.
What Makes a Treatment With Us Different?
It is AMC’s osteopaths’ comprehensive approach to healthcare that makes osteopathic treatment unique. Our osteopaths do not look on patients as numbers or complaints, but as individuals. Treatment is designed to correct each individual's mechanical problems and to help to stimulate their own natural healing processes.
We are also pleased to be able to offer Therapeutic Ultrasound and Laser Therapy, which can be particularly useful for treating acute pain that may be associated with acute sprains and strains, sports injuries and their subsequent rehabilitation.
What To Expect During a Treatment?
Your first consultation with our osteopaths will normally include a full assessment and also osteopathic treatment. Our osteopaths will first investigate the underlying cause of your pain and then aim to provide appropriate treatment for you using a variety of hands-on therapeutic techniques tailored to your individual needs.
