What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a system of health care used at thorne road therapy centre doncaster for relieving pain and boosting health by helping the whole body work at its best. It can aid recovery from many different conditions including headaches, migraines, sports injuries, strains and sprains, back and neck pains, sciatica and trapped nerves, frozen shoulder, muscle and joint pains, arthtritis and much more. A patient is seen as a complete person, not just a collection of parts. Osteopaths think in terms of patterns rather than pieces, checking how problems in one place can have a knock on effect elsewhere. It is distinctive in the fact that it recognises much of the pain and disabilities we suffer stems from abnormalities in the function of the body structure as well as damage caused to it by trauma.
Osteopathy uses many of the diagnostic procedures used in conventional medical assessments and diagnosis. Its main strength, however, lies in the unique way the patient is assessed from a mechanical, functional and postural standpoint and the manual methods of treatment applied to suit the individual needs of the patient.
