Osteopathy is a patient-centered system of
healthcare. A first appointment generally lasts longer that subsequent
appointments, to allow the osteopath adequate time to Listen and ask questions
about your problem, your general health, other medical care you are receiving
or medication you are taking, and record this in your case notes. Osteopathy specializes in the diagnosis, management, treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal and other related disorders.
Sports massage is
an advanced treatment that loosens up tight muscles, breaks down
lactic acid and adhesions in muscle fibers and generally focuses on restoring
and/or maintaining the full flexibility of your muscles. It can be
used to aid recovery from training or an event or as part of a long term
training program. Sports massage is effective in speeding up the recovery
time and helps you to get back to your sport quicker.
Medical Acupuncture provides a fast effective route to pain relief, through the use of fine needles inserted into trigger points in muscles. The needles penetrate deep into knots of muscles, to relieve tension and increase blood flow to the region. They can hit stubborn knots with precision, even when the source of pain seems to be buried so deep as to be inaccessible to massage. Relaxing these trigger points can release long held pain.
