Traditionally known for the treatment of back pain, osteopathy is an established system of diagnosis and treatment for mechanical problems affecting any part of the body - including neck pain and headaches, shoulder and wrist injuries, foot and ankle complaints, as well as overuse and sports injuries and the pain and stiffness of arthritis. Techniques range from gentle releasing techniques to joint manipulation, in order to ease stiffness and improve joint movement. The high velocity thrusts (the manipulation that can produce the well known 'cracking' of joints), may be used if clinically appropriate. The techniques used will depend on what is appropriate for each individual case.> Osteopathy is governed and regulated by the General Osteopathic Council and is recognised by the British Medical Association. All registered Osteopaths must have insurance and follow a strict code of conduct.
Sports Physiotherapy requires specialist in-depth knowledge of the stresses that sport(s) place on the body. Pilates is for everyone - from new mums to professional athletes. It promotes flexibility, strength, muscle endurance and can reduce the risk of injury. Focusing on the development of the deep postural muscles which stabilise the spine and torso, Pilates works the body from the inside out, addressing muscle imbalances and postural faults to help create a leaner, stronger body.
Rediscovered by physiotherapists, Pilates can be individually modified. It is therefore a safe and invigorating exercise for the general population and those with a history of back pain and sporting injuries.
