What is osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment that lays its main emphasis on the structural integrity of the body. It is distinctive in the way that it recognises that much of the pain and disability we suffer stems from abnormalities in the function and mobility of the body structure. Osteopaths work with their hands using a wide variety of treatment techniques. These may include soft tissue techniques, passive joint mobilisation, or manipulative techniques employed to improve joint mobility. We also utilise a range of gentle release techniques which are used for treatment of children and the elderly.
What can I expect when I visit the teaching clinic?
When you visit the teaching clinic for the first time your student practitioner will ask detailed questions regarding your presenting complaint and general health, prior to a thorough examination. You will normally be asked to remove some of your clothing before being asked to perform some simple movements. You may request to be treated by a practitioner of the same sex.
The student osteopath will use many of the diagnostic procedures used in conventional medicine. The body’s tissues will also be assessed with the use of a highly developed sense of touch (palpation). These procedures will identify and points of weakness or excessive strain in the tissues of the body. If necessary the treatment team may request further diagnostic tests, e.g. X-rays or MRIs prior to making their diagnosis.
Following this thorough structural evaluation, a holistic treatment plan will be developed and discussed with you, according to your individual needs. Finally, if appropriate, treatment will commence. If you are currently taking any medication or have in your possession recent medical images, please bring these with you to the consultation.
