How does osteopathy help?
Osteopaths look at the whole body and take a very extensive medical history to understand how your body is working. It may be that you suffer recurrent headaches but on examination and history the osteopath may find that it was a combination of an old whiplash injury, poor posture and the stress of a new job that is overloading your body’s compensatory mechanism.
The osteopath will help your body re-adapt by releasing the tensions in the neck and middle back.
How many sessions?
This is very individual and depends on factors such as your age and the condition of your body. Some people only need one or two sessions whereas others need many more over a longer period of time.
Will it hurt?
Some of the techniques used may be uncomfortable.
