I live in Brighton and if you are looking for an then this short article will help you understand what can be done for you… As I know there is nothing like pain to make life almost unbearable. Finding the right osteopath to provide the right treatment is of paramount importance. Many people think that an Osteopath is just a back specialist, and although they do always look at the spine, they treat far more than just backs. Their main areas of expertise are the muscles, joints and nerves of the body and their associated problems.

An Osteopath looks at the body as a whole, and aims to place it in a position where it can heal itself. An Osteopath is trained to diagnose the cause of pain or dysfunction, taking a very detailed case history to make sure they have a full picture of a patients’ presenting complaint as well as their past history.

An Osteopath aims to restore the body to its optimum health with a variety of techniques ranging from massage, mobilisations and manipulations, depending on the patient’s age, fitness and diagnosis. As health care professionals they look out for more serious complaints or symptoms and refer patients to specialists where necessary.

In a typical treatment, the osteopath applies innocuous forces to the right parts of the body to release the strain and stress and also to make the body’s self healing forces work in the right direction in addressing the problem area… The different types of forces that are used for the treatments are of variable pressure, balanced tension, augmentation and muscle energy. Osteopathic therapy can be directed against any part of the body including bones, muscles, ligaments, connective tissue etc…

Osteopathy can be for everyone, patients varying from the newborn baby to the elderly, from pregnant women to sports people.
