Osteopathic healthcare in the heart of Leigh on Sea
At BB Osteopathy we understand the negative impact musculoskeletal pain can have on both physical & mental wellbeing. That is why we pride ourselves on the delivery of exceptional osteopathic treatment & aftercare to keep you feeling & moving at your optimum.
WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?
Osteopathy is a holistic system of diagnosis and hands on treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. Osteopaths work with the structure & function of the body, and treatment is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together.
Osteopathic treatment involves soft tissue massage techniques in combination with stretching, mobilising and manipulations of the spine and the peripheral joints in the body.
Osteopathy is a regulated by the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) and osteopaths are recognised as allied health professionals by the NHS.
WHAT CAN OSTEOPATHY HELP WITH?
Back & neck pain
Generalised aches & pains
Headache arising from the neck
Minor sports injuries
Neuralgia (nerve pain)
Tension & inability to relax
WHAT TO EXPECT?
During your first consultation you will be asked a series of questions regarding your reason for visiting, medical history, lifestyle and occupation. This will be followed by a physical examination and testing, you may be required to remove certain items of clothing at this stage of the consultation, in order to expose the symptomatic area so please bring some shorts or loose clothing to change into.
Once the examination is complete you will be given a diagnosis and a proposed treatment plan, which is tailored specifically to you. This will be followed by osteopathic treatment, or referral for further medical investigations if required. Following treatment, it is common to feel some mild discomfort of the affected area for up to 72 hours.
