Osteopathy/Podiatry

 

Osteopathy or Osteopathic Medicine is a drug-free, non-invasive form of manual therapy that is holistic in nature. Osteopaths focus on musculoskeletal framework to improve patient’s health via strengthening and mobilisation techniques.

Osteopathic Principles are what sets Osteopathic treatment apart from all other modalities. Osteopaths treat with the idea in mind that all body parts function in an integrated manner and that if one body part is restricted, others will compensate leading to inflammation and pain.

By targeting treatment to a number of restricted areas, patients can fully recover and being to strengthen and prevent further illness or injury.

Improvements from Osteopathic Treatment include improved mobility and stability in the structural framework of the body. This then leads to decreased pain, improved mobility, improved performance or systems (circulatory, nervous and lymphatic) and a better way of life.

Podiatry

 

Podiatry, still sometimes called by its old name, Chiropody, is an allied health profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and management of medical conditions and injuries of the foot, ankle and lower limb.

The scope of podiatry ranges from the treatment of minor problems, like corns and calluses, to more serious problems, like complex structural foot problems.
