WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY
Our Job Is To Make You Better
Here at Reading Osteopaths we provide natural healthcare that is suitable for newborns right through to the elderly. We also offer osteopathy in pregnancy for pregnancy related aches and pains and cranial osteopathy. Please contact us for more information if you are pregnant and would like an appointment as we prefer not to treat during week 10-14 of pregnancy.
What is osteopathy ?
Osteopathy is a form of hands on therapy that is used to diagnose, treat and prevent problems with an individual's musculoskeletal system. If joints, ligaments or muscles are not functioning correctly, pain can be the result.
Osteopaths use a range of techniques that are tailored to you as an individual depending on your age and level of fitness. These include joint manipulations (the "pops & clicks"), soft tissue massage, stretching and cranial techniques (also known as cranial osteopathy). Osteopaths also give advice on exercise and lifestyle issues as part of your treatment management plan.
