Osteopathy is a primary care profession, focusing on the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and rehabilitation of bone, ligament, muscle, nerves, organs and other tissue disorders of your body, and the effects of these conditions on your general health. Osteopathy is a natural and holistic healing art that seeks to address misalignments in the spine and joints of the body. These misalignments can interfere with normal blood flow, cause pressure on nerves, in which may result in a wide array of symptoms, ranging from pain, headaches, numbness and disease or dysfunction in your body. Which in turn affects your health. Using many of the diagnostic procedures applied in conventional medical assessment, osteopaths seek to restore the optimal functioning of your body, where possible without the use of drugs or surgery. Osteopathy is based on the principle that your body has the ability to heal, and osteopathic care focuses on strengthening the musculoskeletal systems to treat existing conditions and to prevent illness. Osteopaths’ patient-centred approach to health and well-being means they consider your symptoms in the context of your full medical history, as well as your lifestyle and personal circumstances. This holistic approach ensures that all treatment is tailored to you, the individual patient.
At the first consultation, Victor will compile a full case history of your symptoms, as well as asking for information about your lifestyle and diet. The osteopath may also observe you making some simple movements to help them make a diagnosis. You will usually be asked to remove some clothing near the area of the body to be examined. Osteopaths are trained to examine areas of the body using a highly-developed sense of touch, known as palpation, to determine conditions and identify the body’s points of weakness or excessive strain. Osteopathy is a ‘package’ of care that includes skilled mobilising and manipulative techniques, reinforced by guidance on diet and exercise. The osteopath will discuss with you the most appropriate treatment plan, estimating the likely number of sessions needed to treat your condition effectively. If the osteopath thinks that your condition is unlikely to respond to osteopathic treatment, you will be advised about how to seek further care. Osteopaths are skilled in diagnostic techniques and trained to identify when a patient needs to be referred to a GP.
