What is Osteopathy?

Welcome to Glasgow Osteopaths

Osteopathy is a well-established approach to health care, which is based on a unique system of clinical diagnosis and manual treatment. A caring approach and attention to the individual are particularly important.

Osteopathy is a very safe form of treatment. Instead of drugs, osteopaths use their hands both to discover the underlying causes of pain and to carry out treatment using a variety of techniques from massage of soft tissues to manipulation and movement of joints.

The cranial approach uses very gentle techniques in which the osteopath's highly trained sense of touch is used to identify and correct disturbances and limitations of tissue mobility, not only in and around the joints of the skull, but throughout the body.

What Can It Help?

Osteopathy is clinically proven to be one of the best ways of relieving back pain, as well as many other conditions. Some conditions treatable by Osteopathy are:

  • Back Pain
  • Sports Injuries
  • Work Strain
  • Pregnancy
  • Headaches
  • Neck Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Arthritic pain
  • Poor Circulation
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Jaw Problems

The Facts - Back Pain

The Facts - Back PainResearch shows that 60% of the UK population will suffer from back pain at some stage during their lifetimes. A recent Health Dept report recommends physical therapy such as osteopathy as early as possible after on-set. Osteopathic treatment is particularly successful in this area and can be more effective than the old painkillers & bed rest approach.

The Facts - The Elderly

Painkillers are not the only solution for aches and pains associated with ageing. For more permanent relief it is necessary to eliminate the underlying causes of pain, a job for which the osteopath is specifically trained.
