Osteo, is that bone?

If you have never heard of an Osteopath, then you’re in luck, because it’s a modern approach to healthcare..

 

Perhaps you have been feeling out of whack lately? Maybe your neck is aching or your back is giving you grief? Well an Osteopath can help you feel better and function at your best.

 

Let’s break it down: Osteopathy is all about treating your body as a whole, rather than just focusing on the symptoms. By using hands-on techniques, an osteopath can help improve your body's function, reduce pain, and increase your overall sense of well-being.

 

And the best part? Osteopathy is totally natural, so you don't have to worry about any weird chemicals and their side effects. It's like giving your body a tune-up, so you can feel like your best self again.

 

So, if you're ready to kick that pain to the curb and start feeling like great again, give Osteopathy a try. Your body (and your future self) will thank you!

Your Osteopath, Daniel

Has pain been getting you down?

Maybe your...

  • Muscles are sore, tight or achy from lifting weights 

  • Neck or back is in pain from sitting for too long

  • Shoulders are painful, restricted or pinching when reaching up

  • Hands feels weak or numb from a loss of strength

stuff that.

A quick check in with an Osteo will help..

Get that blood flowing:
Osteopaths can use hands-on techniques to help improve blood flow to areas of the body that are causing pain. More blood flow means more oxygen and nutrients, which can help reduce inflammation and pain.

 

Release that tension:

Tight muscles and joints can be a major source of pain. Osteopaths can use gentle pressure and stretching to help release tension and improve flexibility.
 

Ease that inflammation:
Inflammation can be a major contributor to pain. Osteopaths can help reduce inflammation through hands-on techniques that promote circulation and lymphatic drainage.

 

Find the root cause:
Sometimes, pain is a symptom of an underlying issue. Osteopaths are trained to look at the body as a whole and can help identify any structural or functional issues that may be causing your pain.

Your Osteo will always assess first, treat second..

So, you're looking to book your first osteopathy appointment? that's awesome! You're probably wondering what to expect, right? Well, let me break it down for you.

 

First things first, your osteopath will want to get to know you a bit. They'll ask you about your medical history, lifestyle, and any concerns you might have. Don't worry, though, it's all pretty chill and low-key.

 

After that, it's time for the hands-on stuff. Your osteopath will use their hands to assess your body and find any areas that might be causing issues. Again, it's all pretty relaxed - no weird machines or anything like that.

 

Once your osteopath has identified any problem areas, they'll use gentle techniques to help improve your body's function and reduce any pain or discomfort. It's like a massage, but with a purpose.

 

Overall, your initial osteopathy consultation is all about getting to know you and your body, and working out a plan to help you feel your best. So, throw on some shorts and a singlet, put on some zen tunes, and roll on in for your first appointment.

Have you heard Osteos use manipulation?
aka HVLA 

Osteopathic manipulation is termed HVLA, which stands for high-velocity, low-amplitude, and it's a hands-on technique that helps improve your body's function and reduce pain or discomfort.

In simple terms, It’s like a quick adjustment, with a pop. But don’t worry we are not cracking any bones, just letting out some gas..

 

The good thing is that HVLA helps to ease tension and improve range of motion where joints are restricted - so in short, it is just good old-fashioned manual therapy.

So dry needling, what’s up with that? 

Dry needling is a therapy that involves using thin, clean needles to target tight spots or knots in your muscles. A skilled practitioner will insert the needles into your skin and muscles, then usually wiggle them around a bit to help release tension and alleviate any pain.
 

Dry needling is different from acupuncture, which is based on traditional Chinese medicine and focuses on specific points along the body's energy pathways. 

 

Dry needling, on the other hand, directly targets your muscles and bones. It’s used for treating all kinds of issues, from back pain and neck pain to headaches and sports injuries.

If it's not your thing, no big deal, your Osteo will make other treatment options available to you!
