osteopathy - Allan Mitchell

BSc  (Hons) Ost

Benefits of therapy:    

Osteopaths use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, to relieve muscle tension, to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and to help your body’s own healing mechanisms. They may also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.    

What happens in a session?    

When you have your first consultation, a confidential detailed case history will be taken which will include questions about you current symptoms and your past medical history. This information helps the practitioner understand the background to your problem and enables a diagnosis to be formed.
A musculoskeletal examination will be conducted that will involve an assessment of your posture and movements. The practitioner may take your blood pressure and may test reflexes, joint mobility and muscle strength. The practitioner will then discuss the findings of the assessment and decide on a treatment plan, with your consent, that will suit you and your complaint best.

Length of session:  Typically 1 hour

Days/Times available:  Tuesday and Saturday mornings.

Prices per session:  £40
