Osteopathy Brighton

Osteopathy works on the core principle that the body functions as one integrated and inseparable unit, which can be treated through utilising its own self-healing mechanisms. The body must be seen and treated as a whole.

An initial consultation typically consists of:

  • Explanation (what Osteopathy is and how treatment can help)
  • Taking a case history
  • Examination and assessment
  • Treatment

Osteopaths use physical manipulation, stretching and mobilisation, to:

  • increase joints’ range of motion
  • relieve muscle tension
  • enhance tissue blood supply
  • trigger the body’s self-healing mechanisms

Osteopathy can be used on its own or in conjunction with other treatments. It can be used to treat and manage a wide range of conditions, and is suitable for almost anyone. Osteopaths primarily focus on the neuro-musculoskeletal system, using holistic and patient-centred approaches to aid the correct functioning of the body.
