Osteopathy is a modern form of healthcare, involving highly skilled diagnosis and treatment. Osteopathy recognises the importance of the link between the structure of the human body and the way it functions. Osteopaths focus on the bodyâ€™s skeleton and joint function along with the underlying muscles, soft tissue and internal organs.
Treatment usually consists of a combination of soft-tissue releasing techniques, and some specific adjustments affecting joints and soft-tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments). Advice can also be given on self-help treatments and exercises to maintain the effectiveness of your treatments. Patients of all ages can benefit and the treatment is tailored to the individual. All osteopaths are registered with the General Osteopathic Council.
The majority of patients that consult our clinic are suffering from back or neck pain. However, at OiA we have a specialist interest in sports injuries, gait analysis and rehabilitation. We have gym equipment and treadmill on-site so we can provide the most up to date exmaination and treatment techniques, including 'Kinesiology Taping'. In addition, we specialise in 'bespoke' orthotic casting, prescription and fitting.
