What is Osteopathy?


Osteopathy is a method of manual treatment in which the trained and experienced osteopath uses his/her hands to investigate the underlying causes of pain. Allowing them to carry out treatment using a variety of manipulative techniques.

It is likely that these treatments will include muscle and connective tissue techniques, rhythmic joint movements or thrust techniques to improve the range of movement in a joint, thus reducing pain. Our Osteopathy clinic may use gentle releasing techniques, particularly when treating children & elderly patients. If you think you may benefit from treatment why not visit us at our Bournemouth Osteopath clinic today?

What do Osteopaths treat

At our Osteopath clinic in Bournemouth we treat a wide range of physical conditions such as : Slipped disc, Arthritis, Low back pain, Sciatica, Neck pain, Frozen shoulder, Tension Headaches , Hip, Knee, Ankle, Foot pain, Sports Injuries, Tennis Elbow & Migraines.

An osteopath’s aim is to treat the cause of the problem and not just the symptoms. For example, someone who has pain in the neck may have an imbalance in the pelvis that would alter spinal curvature and cause spinal muscle spasm. This could then manifest as neck pain, headaches or pins and needles down the arm. Without addressing the cause the symptoms may not improve.


Can Osteopathy help me?

Why not contact our Bournemouth clinic, even if you are based in Christchurch or Poole? The answer will most likely be Yes. After a full examination our trained and experienced osteopath will know whether you are suitable for treatment or need referring for further investigation.

Length of Treatments

The number of treatments required varies from patient to patient. For example, some low back conditions need only one or two treatments while others may take four or more. Degenerative conditions such as osteo-arthritis or repetitive strain problems may require regular treatment at monthly or quarterly intervals. Some patients may require appropriate exercise therapy. In other cases x-ray examination may be arranged.
