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 your back went as you were bending down to put on your sock but on examination and history the osteopath may find that it was a combination of the poor posture, poor muscle tone, and a car accident that happened years ago. The act of putting on a sock was enough to overload your body’s compensatory mechanism.
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.
