I take an evidence-informed approach to treatment and aim to support patients beyond illness recovery through to dynamic health and high-level fitness if that’s your goal.
Treatment involves manual techniques including soft tissue stretching and massage, resisted muscle contractions, patient-inherent (instinctive) movements, nerve mobilisation, joint articulation and manipulation, therapeutic needling (acupuncture) and shockwave therapy. The treatment is usually quite gentle and conducted with your consent and assistance. Because osteopaths look at the ‘whole’ picture of human functioning, they also use a variety of approaches which acknowledge the many factors contributing to balance and health. I may, therefore, provide advice on diet, exercise, posture, and other aspects of health behaviour. This comprehensive approach to management will help you to achieve a high level of wellness.
