Osteopathy in Dunstable - Leighton Buzzard 

What is osteopathy? 

Osteopathy helps to restore the body’s normal movement and capability when impaired by injury, illness or disability. 
 
Osteopaths consider the body as a whole, believing it can only work at its best in good structural balance. For instance, pain and stiffness in one area may be caused by having to compensate for an undetected problem in another. 
 
Seeking to enable the body to use its own self-healing systems osteopathy is suitable for all ages from the newborn (click here more info) to the elderly.

Depending on your age, fitness and diagnosis, osteopaths use a wide range of gentle manipulation with a practised and highly developed sense of touch to relieve muscle tension and pain. This could include deep tissue massage, joint articulation, and stretching. 
 
You might also be given advice on posture and exercises to do at home, which will be designed to improve the healing process and prevent the condition’s return.

You’ll be asked about your symptoms, medical history as well as your day-to-day routine, diet and exercise. Our osteopaths will also look at your posture and flexibility, gently moving your body to assess more accurately where the pain or sensitivity is. If necessary, your blood pressure might be taken or you could be referred for an x-ray to confirm any findings. 
 
Maintaining high standards of ethics and professionalism we will always tell you if your condition is not suitable for osteopathy in which case we can refer you to your GP or an orthopaedic surgeon. 
 
Before any treatment your osteopath will explain what improvements you’re likely to see and the length of time it could take.
