Upon consent you will be asked to undress so that the relevant area is visible and a series of orthopaedic, neurologic and osteopathic tests will be undertaken. At all times during the examination and subsequent treatment if required patient modesty and concerns will be catered for.
Using a highly developed sense of touch called ‘palpation’, any points of dysfunction or excessive strain throughout the body will be identified.
This can help to reduce muscular spasm, improve circulation, reduce swelling and improve mobility, helping to promote a healthier state in which damaged tissue can heal. Osteopathy’s main strength lies in the unique way the patient is assessed holistically from a mechanical, functional and postural viewpoint.
