Osteopathy focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of musculo-skeletal problems. A detailed knowledge of the structure and function of the body enables the osteopath to diagnose and identify any underlying causes of injury or mechanical stress.
Osteopathy focuses mainly on the diagnosis, management, treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal and other related disorders. Commonly treated conditions include:
An accurate diagnosis is the prerequisite of successful treatment, and is reached by taking a detailed medical history and completing a physical examination of the area – using medical, orthopaedic and neurological tests where appropriate. Diagnosis and proposed treatment will then be discussed and carried out straight away if you are in agreement.
Treatment aims to gently restore function using a wide variety of techniques, possibly including massage, mobilisation and manipulation. Exercise, ergonomic and lifestyle advice may be given.
The initial consultation and appointment typically takes 1 hour minutes with follow-up sessions lasting about 30 minutes.
Osteopaths complete a four or five year degree course combining academic and clinical work. They are required to update their training throughout their working lives.
Most insurers cover osteopathic treatment but it is best to check first. Andrew is fully covered by all insurers including BUPA and AXA PPP.
