Elemental Health - Osteopathy
What Is Osteopathy & How Does It Work?
Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine, which recognises the important link between the structure of the body and the way it functions.
Osteopaths focus on how the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulation, connective tissue and internal organs function as a holistic unit.
Conditions That Can Be Treated
The most common complaints for which patients consult Osteopaths include:
- Back and neck pain
- Pains in peripheral joints (such as shoulders, knees and ankles)
- Tendinitis and muscle strains
- Work-related and repetitive strain injuries
- Sports-related injuries
- Arthritic conditions
Osteopathy can also can be of value in reducing the severity of symptoms in conditions such as asthma, gynaecological dysfunction and chronic fatigue. Many mothers-to-be also find Osteopathic treatment very beneficial both to reduce back pain during pregnancy and also to help prepare the body for birth.

What To Expect During a Treatment
During an Osteopathic treatment, our team uses a range of techniques, such as stretching and massage for general treatment of the soft tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments). Mobilisation of specific joints and soft tissues is yet another technique that can be used by our practitioners. In addition, there is a wide variety of gentle non-manipulative techniques for use on infants, small children and the elderly, so feel free to contact us today to discuss the best techniques for your needs.
