What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a hands-on approach to healthcare recognising the important link between the structures of your body and the way it functions. It acknowledges that the health and well-being of a person is dependent on each individual aspect of the body functioning in balance as a unit.

An osteopath uses anatomical and physiological knowledge, along with skilled clinical evaluation to assess and diagnose. They look at the whole body for causes of injury as well as barriers to recovery.

Osteopaths use a wide range of techniques to improve the relationship between the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves and circulation, all with the aim of enhancing the body’s own healing mechanisms.

 

How can Osteopathy help me?

At Camlough Osteopathy we treat people, not conditions. You are unique and so is your story, that is why no two patients are treated the same. We do not believe that one size fits all, that is why our consultations are specifically tailored to you as an individual. Our specialist training and extensive experience allow us to identify the root of the problem as well as any contributing factors that may have accumulated rather than just treating the symptoms.

Osteopaths use a wide variety of techniques including joint mobilisation, manipulation, stretching, myofascial release, soft tissue treatment and craniosacral manipulation to relieve pain and tension. Treatment will focus on the areas of pain but also incorporate a total body approach.
