Osteopathy for Adults

Osteopathy focusses on the musculoskeletal system with the aim to diagnose, treat and rehabilitate structural imbalances in the body without using medication.

Osteopathy can be used to treat a broad range of people from office workers, horse riders and runners to pregnant women and the elderly. We use a range of techniques including physical manipulation, stretching and massage to rebalance the body’s structure and improve day-to-day functioning. This may help to relieve pain in the back, neck, shoulders, knees and some arthritic pain.

Our work is based on the principal that symptoms may be caused by several contributing factors. Using this idea, we evaluate areas of the body, your medical history and environmental factors in order to produce a personal treatment plan to help alleviate your symptoms.

Active Life

There are major benefits for keeping active – if during the course of your activity you become injured or experience pain, Osteopathy can help identify and treat the root cause of the problem. We can use treatment and advice to find a solution. In the case of an injury such as a sprain, we can aid recovery, helping prevent a reoccurrence with proprioceptive rehabilitation.

Later Life

Osteopathy may help relieve pain caused by arthritis, aching joints and general ageing. Osteopaths are trained to screen for underlying medical conditions and refer patients if appropriate.

Desk Ergonomics

The way your desk is set up impacts your posture. Factors such as monitor height, the position of your keyboard and mouse, how your chair is set up and whether you have wrist supports can all contribute to physical issues related to your desk work.

Common symptoms can include pain, tingling or stiffness in the shoulder, elbow or hand, neck tension and headaches. Osteopathic treatment may provide relief for these symptoms and help you manage them, but without addressing the cause it is difficult to maintain improvements

Stefan can provide desk assessments at your place of work or home office to identify areas that may be causing problems. Often, he can suggest inexpensive solutions to improve your desk set up and reduce the chance of physical tension related to desk-based work.

The principle of osteopathy is that the wellbeing of an individual relies on the way that bones, muscles, ligaments, connective tissue and internal structures work with each other.
