Osteopathic treatment is based on the principle that the body has the natural ability to heal itself. Osteopaths work to identify and remove any barriers to this natural healing process through various techniques, including manipulation of the spine, joints, and muscles; mobilisation of the joints; stretching and massage. This approach can help to reduce pain, improve range of motion, and improve overall health and well-being.
OT&P's Osteopaths treat people of all ages, with each treatment being tailored to meet the patient's specific needs. OT&P's osteopaths can manage a range of conditions.
Both chiropractors and osteopaths focus on treating musculoskeletal conditions, but the key difference is that Osteopaths take a more holistic approach to treatment. Osteopaths look at how each body part works together rather than just focusing on the individual bones and joints. Osteopaths use various techniques, such as massage, stretching, and manipulation, to treat the whole body.
OT&P Osteopath specialises in treating your physical complaints. We work closely with our patients to develop individualised treatment plans to address their condition's underlying cause and find health.
“To find health should be the object…anyone can find disease.”
Andrew Taylor Still, Founder, Osteopathic Medicine
During the first few sessions of your osteopathy treatment, we will evaluate your state of being with detailed case history taking and examination, trying to understand how you got here and provide help where needed. We look to discover the underlying problem of your complaint. Various disorders can develop in the body due to compensation for old injuries, operations, infections, accidents, childbirth, scars, and more. OT&P’s osteopaths will gain a comprehensive understanding of your medical history and current physical stressors to get to the root cause of the issue and personalise your treatment. By understanding the nature of the imbalance we can one take appropriate actions to improve your wellbeing and find health.
A personal approach is central here since everybody has a different history and a different way of compensating. OT&P’s Osteopaths develop treatment plans specific to your individual needs and may involve a combination of techniques. The aim of treatment is to relieve pain, restore function and improve your overall long-term well-being. With regular treatments, you can expect long-term improvements in your health and quality of life.
