Adults: back and neck pain, joint, nerve and muscle pain - hips, knees, ankles and feet, shoulders, elbow, wrists and hands. Pregnancy and post partum complaints, TMJ dysfunction, headaches, digestive issues, pain and mobility issues arising from arthritic changes or injuries and much more.
What should patients wear
Generally it is requested that patients wear loose fitting clothes such as shorts, leggings or tracksuit bottoms, with T-shirt or loose fitting top. Gym gear is also suitable.
Tight fitting clothes, dresses or skirts, and clothes with thick seams, buttons and zips can make it difficult to assess the patient.
Occasionally it might be necessary to ask a patient to remove an item of clothing to assist in examination i.e. shoulder, hip or back exam. Only if the patient is comfortable with this and with the patients full consent.
Techniques - Structural, Cranial and Visceral Osteopathic techniques are used in isolation or combination during your osteopathic treatment depending on the needs of the patient.
