What sort of problems can osteopathy treat?

Osteopathy can treat a range of problems caused by restrictions in the mobility of the joints, muscles, fascia (soft-tissues) and even the organs of the body. Typically people who have suffered accidents or have repetitive strain related injuries with joint and muscle pain seek treatment. Birth injures torticolis as well as a range of paediatric problems can also be treated, as well as expectant mothers, during pregnancy and after birth. Chronic pain can be addressed by re-aligning posture, promoting better circulation and nerve function thus soliciting and strengthening the body’s natural healing capacities.

How long does a osteopathic treatment last?

Typically a consultation lasts about 45 minutes which includes taking a history, treatment (about 35 minutes) and recommendations.

How many treatments will I need?

That all depends on your condition, how serious the problem is, and how long the problem has existed.  Generally, you should appreciably improve after 2 to 4 treatments. Often sooner, however, chronic problems can require more than 4 treatments.
