What do osteopaths treat?
Osteopaths are often associated with bad backs, and this is for good reason. It is very much our speciality and we see and treat all types of back pain ranging from muscular aches and strains, to prolapsed and herniated discs.
However there is more to the human body than just backs, and osteopaths treat a variety of common conditions including:
Low Back Pain- Lumbago
Tennis & Golfers Elbow
RSI & Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Arthritic change to hips & Knees
Changes in posture and pain related to pregnancy
Osteopathy is a profession dedicated to assessing, treating and rehabilitating dysfunctional parts of the human body. These include muscles, joints, nerves and ligaments. Osteopathy is particularly concerned with restoring efficiency to the musculo-skeletal system. When the body runs smoothly there is less strain on its moving parts. Just like a car! Osteopathy is a physical, manual therapy that uses hands-on treatment such as soft-tissue massage, joint mobilisation and manipulation, stretching, exercises and much more.
Osteopathy has lots of similarities to Physiotherapy and Chiropractic, but also a few differences. The difference between Osteopathy, Physiotherapy and Chiropractic are often based on the individual practitioner.
Your Osteopath will take a detailed and thorough case history of your presenting complaint. They will then perform a physical examination of the injured area/s.
This will consist of observation, palpation, active and passive movements and any special clinical tests deemed relevant.
A treatment plan will be developed and explained to you. Any rehabilitation or exercises will be prescribed and demonstrated.
Any questions that you have regarding your injury can be discussed throughout the consultation.
“I’m suffering from back pain for a number of years and more recently from tendonitis in both shoulders. A friend of mine recommended to see Soraya working as osteopath at Cambridge Complementary Health. Soraya helped me reducing the pain significantly by using manual treatment and gave helpful advice about how to stretch and loosen muscles. I would recommend her to other people with back and neck problems. She’s taken the time to listen to your problems carefully to get an idea about the whole picture of the problem. If I will need osteopathic help again I’d contact her.”
“I went to Cambridge Complementary Health for osteopathy for my neck and back. Service and treatment were both excellent. I saw Soriah the osteopath and she was very understanding and experienced. I had already tried chiropractic and physiotherapy, neither of which did the trick. She also gave great advice on continuing to build my fitness to avoid future problems. Thoroughly recommend!”
“First class treatment by all staff, admin and treatment alike. I recommended husband to Jack who has done a wonderful job. Definitely keep going for maintenance treatments as the original problem has completely cleared up thanks to not only the treatment but advice for how to keep it from not coming back in the form of exercises and posture. Many many thanks.”
