Osteopathy Techniques and Treatments
Osteopathy uses hands-on techniques to restore the body to health. It is a well established health care profession recognised by Government and the General Medical Council. It is a system of diagnosis and treatment focusing on the whole body, which works by restoring the bodys structural and functional balance.
Osteopaths treat problems of the musculoskeletal system, mostly pain and disability arising from the joints and muscles of the body. This can be as the result of injuries or disease, but more often as the result of the day to day stress on our bodies derived from the things we do.
Osteopaths use their hands to decrease muscle tension and, stretch out joint restrictions, so that the patient’s body moves better and without pain. Not all bodies can be made perfect, but nearly everyone gains ease of pain and improvement in physical ability as a result of treatment.
Martin Matthews treats people of all ages and fitness levels from the newborn to the elderly, manual workers, office professionals, pregnant women, children, babies and sports people. He uses a wide range of gentle techniques including physical manipulation, stretching, soft tissue release, joint mobilization and cranial techniques to increase the mobility of joints, to relieve muscle tension and ease pain.
Conditions treated include:
All osteopaths in the UK are regulated by the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). It is against the law for anyone to call themselves an osteopath unless they are registered with the General Osteopathic Council.
