Maybe you have tried podiatry, which can be helpful, but now you are looking for lasting changes and a deeper understanding of what is wrong. Osteopathy is a hands-on, holistic treatment which looks at the entire body including the hips and spine, as many foot and ankle problems have their root in other places in the body – for example your foot pain could be a result of your body trying to compensate for an uneven pelvis. We often work in conjunction with experienced and well-qualified podiatrists to achieve greater levels of pain-free wellbeing.
How Osteopathy Can Help You
Osteopathy is a comprehensive system of diagnosis and treatment encompassing a thorough assessment of musculoskeletal function, and treatment including joint manipulation, spinal manipulation and massage. Osteopaths treat many common musculoskeletal problems such as aches and pains, back or neck aches, joint pains and sports injuries.
One of the biggest advantages of osteopathy is its comprehensive diagnosis, including spinal and postural assessment as well as examining the problem itself. Pain or injury in one part of the body is often the result of a problem somewhere else, and osteopathy allows us to get to the real root of the problem and treat not just where it hurts but why it hurts. We can then use the appropriate techniques to treat the problem, whether it be joint manipulation, postural realignment or muscle work and massage.
Osteopaths are qualified to a minimum of degree level and regulated by the GOsC. We are one of the 14 allied health professions and primary care practitioners, meaning we are trained to be people’s first port of call for healthcare and to refer them to more appropriate services if appropriate.
We have many years experience treating patients across Maidenhead and Berkshire. Your health is important to us, as is ensuring you feel comfortable at all times during your treatment, from understanding what to expect at your first appointment through to listening to your feedback and continually improving our service.
