Osteopathy is a form of treatment, which recognises the importance of the link between the structure of the human body and the way it functions. Osteopaths focus on the body’s skeleton and joint function, along with the underlying muscles, soft tissues and internal organs.
There may be slight pain experienced during certain treatment techniques but it is important to remember you are in charge, if it is too painful please tell your osteopath and a different approach may be used.
This will be discussed and agreed as part of the treatment plan during your first consultation. It is dependent on many factors, including the condition, how long you have been suffering and your body’s response to treatment.
