Using established methods of examination and diagnosis the osteopath detects damaged parts of the body such as muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints.
These structures when damaged can effect physiological function by inhibiting our vascular and nervous systems.
Your first appointment for your atlas assessment will include an assessment of your full medical history.
Atlas Zone treatment is targeted vibro-pressure massage of the neck’s short muscles and fascia to mitigate existing contractures, allowing for the natural realignment of your Atlas.
The treatment is performed in one session, with a simple follow up appointment a few weeks later.
The Atlas Zone vibro-pressure equipment used is safe, non-invasive and non-manipulative which is free from abrupt or aggressive tractions
Osteopaths use their hands to employ treatment modalities which involve techniques that stretch, massage and mobilise damaged structures.
The aim of this treatment is to restore normal structure and function to the mechanical body enabling a free circulation and a mobile nervous system thus creating the optimal environment for self healing.
When the body is balanced and efficient, just like a well tuned engine, it will function with minimal wear and tear, leaving more energy for living.
One of the main purposes of osteopathy is pain relief.
Osteopathy helps people of all ages who suffer from pain, tackling complaints ranging from sports and work-related injuries to arthritis and sciatica.
The osteopath’s role is to alleviate pain and improve the patient’s mobility in order to make life more comfortable.
Much long-term, recurrent pain is caused by degenerative changes to the body’s framework.
Nobody can reverse this process of ageing, but osteopathic treatment may still ease pain. The skilled techniques of osteopathy can often allow you a speedy return to normal activity.
If you have had pain for a long time, and other forms of treatment have not helped, osteopathic treatment can be beneficial, although it may require time and patience.
Some conditions commonly treated:
– Back and neck pain
– Sports injuries
– Repetitive strain injury
– Tennis and Golfer’s elbow
The title ‘osteopath’ became protected by law from 9 May 2000 and as such osteopathy is recognised as a primary healthcare profession, so you do not need to be referred by your doctor.
An osteopath is trained to diagnose your problem and will refer you to another health-care practitioner if necessary.
