How Does Osteopathy Work?
Osteopaths use a variety of techniques to help improve the body's structure and function, including:
Soft tissue massage: This involves applying pressure to the muscles and soft tissues to relieve tension and improve circulation.
Joint mobilization: This involves gently moving the joints to improve their range of motion and reduce pain.
Manipulation: This involves applying a more forceful, brief force to the joints to improve their alignment and function.
Myofascial release: This involves applying pressure to the fascia, which is the connective tissue that surrounds muscles and organs.
Exercise and postural advice: Osteopaths can also provide advice on exercises and stretches that can help to improve your posture and reduce pain.
