Osteopaths use a variety of manual techniques which include soft tissue massage, fascial release, joint articulation, and manipulation.
These techniques assist in reducing muscle spasm, and increasing mobility and circulation, thereby helping to re-establish a normal anatomical environment - in which damaged tissues can heal.
Much long-term, chronic pain is caused by degenerative changes to the body's framework. Whilst degenerative changes cannot be reversed, improvements in function can still be achieved. Osteopathic treatment uses gentle, manual techniques on joints, muscles and ligaments, and may often ease pain, reduce swelling and improve the mobility and range of joint movement - restoring quality of life.
Approximately 30,000 patients attend Britain’s 5,100 Osteopaths each day. Pain control is an important part of treatment, and as well as providing manual treatment, osteopaths give guidance on simple self-help methods to use at home.
