Q: How does Osteopathy compare with Chiropractics and Physiotherapy?

A: Osteopaths and Chiropractors treat similar conditions and both view the patient from a holistic perspective.
In treatment terms Chiropractors often only require short sessions focusing on specific manipulation of the spine whereas Osteopaths typically prefer longer treatments with more work on muscles and, perhaps, a more gentle manipulation. Physiotherapists tend to have a less philosophical, more medical approach. In treatment terms, Physiotherapist will tend to use more equipment and perhaps rely more on remedial exercises. Osteopaths are more likely to spend longer massaging muscles and are more likely to perform manipulation if required.

Q: What conditions can an Osteopath treat?

A: Osteopathic treatment is appropriate for a wide range of musculoskeletal disorders including: back pain, neck pain and shoulder pain, headaches, arthritic pain.

Q: What should I expect when visiting an Osteopath?

A: When you visit an osteopath for the first time, a full medical history will be taken and you will be given an examination. You may be asked to remove some of your clothing and to perform a simple series of movements so that the mobility of your body can be evaluated. Any points of weakness, excessive strain or specific injury will be identified. This musculo-skeletal assessment will be considered alongside lifestyle factors such as work and leisure activities, to enable a full diagnosis and suitable treatment plan to be determined. Treatment is aimed at reducing pain, discomfort and allowing relief from your symptoms. There are times when it is wise for you to take medication as well as receiving osteopathic treatment. Osteopaths frequently work in close co-operation with your doctor. You do not need to consult your GP before you visit an osteopath although you may choose to do so. The skilled techniques of osteopathy can allow you a speedy return to work.

Q: Do you work with any insurance companies?

A: Yes we work with AXA PPP Healthcare, BUPA and Standard Life.  You can find out what AXA PPP Healthcare, Standard Life and BUPA can offer you from their site.

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.
