Osteopathy

Services at Omphysio

Omphysio provides a friendly and professional osteopathic healthcare service, giving relief from pain and debilitation. We provide tailor-made treatment programmes in order to get you back to being fully functional and pain-free as quickly as possible.

Our Osteopaths work with their hands to improve the health and function of the body’s musculo-skeletal system - the joints, muscles and ligaments. Rather than just treating the area that is symptomatic, we search for the underlying cause of the problem. This may be well away from the area giving pain, and once addressed will reduce the chance of the condition recurring.

We use specific joint manipulations, gentle articulation & soft-tissue massage to improve mobility and relieve pain. Conditions which can be treated by an Osteopath are:

  • Low back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Neck pain / tension
  • Sports injuries
  • Joint pain / stiffness
  • Repetitive strain injury
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Tennis / golfer’s elbow
  • Foot & ankle conditions
  • Symptoms of arthritis

In addition, osteopathy is a successful form of treatment for some more constitutional problems such as headaches, asthma and digestive complaints, the underlying cause of which often lies in the posture and mechanics of the body’s framework.
