Osteopathy is a hands-on system of health care that acknowledges the body’s ability to heal itself. A thorough knowledge of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics is essential in understanding how the body structure can affect its function. If the structure is perfect, it will function. Once there is asymmetry, there will be either pain or disfunction. Our goal is to help your body to be in alignment so you can function as efficiently and comfortably as possible.
At Coast Osteopathy, we want to find the cause or “WHY?” you are experiencing pain or problems. In order to provide you with an accurate diagnosis, we often require detailed information about your ailment and aspects of your lifestyle, so we can treat your body as a ‘whole’.
Treatment may involve techniques to bones and muscles, but also fascia and connective tissue, ligaments and membranes all of which affect the circulatory, digestive and nervous systems. We love to address the cause of the problem and not just treat the symptoms.
In an effort to stop problems returning, you may be given advice on exercises, posture, diet/nutrition and your work station setup. The more involved you can be in your recovery and healing, the more likely you will maintain your new, more comfortable body.
The most common complaints for which patients consult Osteopaths include back and neck pain, sciatica, headaches, pains in peripheral joints such as shoulders, knees and ankles, tendinitis and muscle strains, work-related and repetitive strain injuries, and sports-related injuries. Other conditions for which Osteopathy can play a significant role in reducing the severity of symptoms include asthma, gynaecological dysfunction and pregnancy related postural pain, arthritic conditions and chronic fatigue.
