Osteopathy

You shouldn’t have to put up with pain – let us help you feel better

“Osteopathy is a gentle and effective hands-on approach to healthcare, based on the principle that the way your body moves influences how it functions.  Osteopaths are highly competent healthcare professionals, recognised by the NHS as fully qualified to diagnose and treat independently.” Institute of Osteopathy

What makes osteopathy different from other treatments?

 

Our patient centred approach to health and wellbeing means we consider symptoms in the context of your full medical history, as well as your lifestyle and personal circumstances. We do not simply concentrate on treating the problem you have identified, but look to address the underlying cause of your presenting condition and work with you to devise a tailored treatment plan to get you better and keep you better. We do this in many ways, including:

Identifying causative factors of your symptoms, such as driving position or workstation set-up, and helping you eliminate them

Providing you with an individually tailored exercise programme to aid rehabilitation and to prevent further injury

Addressing any areas of your body which are compensating for the original injury

Supporting you in achieving your health goals such as becoming more active or losing weight

Teaching you stress management techniques

Working with other practitioners such as your GP, consultants, dieticians, acupuncturists etc, where appropriate

Cranial Osteopathy

Are you ready for something a little bit different?

You may find cranial osteopathy very relaxing and, despite the fact that it is so subtle, you may experience changes throughout your body.

What is cranial osteopathy and how does it work?

Cranial osteopathy is a very gentle and subtle type of osteopathic treatment.

We use refined touch and gentle pressure to encourage the release of general tension.

Who is cranial osteopathy suitable for?

As it is so gentle, cranial osteopathy is suitable for use in patients of all ages, including babies and children and pregnant women. During treatment, some patients may experience sensations of warmth or fluid movement, whereas others may simply experience deep relaxation.

All of the osteopaths here at Wimborne Osteopathic Clinic are trained in cranial osteopathy.

 

Osteopathy for babies and children

All of the osteopaths here at Wimborne Osteopathic Clinic treat children over 4 and Rona also treats babies and younger children. We also treat mums during pregnancy and after delivery.

We love this short film in which actress Meera Syal tells how osteopathy helped her family to get some sleep after 2 years of disturbed nights.

Special Offer – half price treatment

We love to see both mums and babies in clinic and think that treatment at this time is particularly important for both of you. So much so that if we have seen mum in clinic when pregnant, then baby’s first appointment is half price. Likewise, if we have seen baby, then mum’s post-natal check is half price. Visit our appointments page to book an appointment.

Osteopathy for expectant mothers

During pregnancy, your body changes A LOT!

It is unsurprising that an expectant mum may feel all sorts of aches and pains, including back and pelvic pain, as her body struggles to adapt. Would you like to feel more comfortable and better prepared for your baby’s birth?

Osteopathic treatment during and after pregnancy can help to:

  • ease some of the physical discomforts of pregnancy such as low back pain and headaches arising from the neck
  • help recovery after birth

Treatment post-pregnancy

After having your baby, your body may return to normal quickly – but not necessarily. Carrying a baby (even a small one!) around can take its toll on your body as can feeding, whether by breast or bottle.

In addition to treating you, we can advise you on feeding postures (don’t forget to swap sides if you are bottle feeding) and ways to carry your baby to reduce the strain.

With so much focus on your baby, why not let us look after you at this special time?
