Osteopaths treat men and women of all ages for a variety of different complaints. The osteopaths at Aim Osteopathy will take a detailed case history and perform a thorough examination in order to make a careful diagnosis. If appropriate, they will then use a variety of carefully applied techniques to help release areas of mechanical stress and tension. Our patient's describe the techniques used as extremely gentle and rarely painful.
Osteopaths are concerned about the function of your whole body, assessing each joint in relation to its motion and in relation to the motion of the rest of the body. The human body has a remarkable compensatory mechanism, and because of this, the location of your pain may not be the source of the problem.
The osteopaths at Aim Osteopathy endeavour to locate the primary source of the pain in order to facilitate positive changes as quickly as possible. Our osteopaths use all of the osteopathic treatment techniques available. Treatment is respectful and tailored to each patient, with a treatment and care plan formed during the initial appointment.
While osteopaths are known to treat adults for conditions such as headaches, neck and back pain, people of all ages also seek osteopathic care for a variety of conditions, such as muscular aches and pains, sports injuries, repetitive strain, carpal tunnel, hip pain, knee pain, ankle and foot pain, shoulder pain, elbow pain wrist hand and finger pain. Osteopaths also like to consider the impact of mechanical restrictions on your general health.
