Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. It works with the structure and function of the body, and is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together.
For your body to function well, it's structure must also work well. Osteopaths work to restore your body to a state of balance, where possible without the use of drugs or surgery. They use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, to relieve muscle tension, to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and to help your body's own healing mechanisms. They may also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.
Osteopaths' patients include the young, older people, manual workers, office professionals, pregnant women, children and sports people. Patients seek treatment for a wide variety of conditions, including back pain, changes to posture in pregnancy, postural problems caused by driving or work strain, the pain of arthritis and minor sports injuries.
Registered with the GOsC, I have worked in Edinburgh since 2003 and help people recover from pain, discomfort or injury, quickly and naturally, I have a specialist training in treating babies and children from the OCC in London. Experience working with elite athletes, professional footballers and performing artists.
