Initial Consultation – FAQ

FAQ
1. What is the difference between Osteo and Myotherapy?

Osteopathy is:  Osteopathy is a gentle, safe and effective hands on therapy for the treatment of the musculoskeletal system. The aim of Osteopathy is to restore function to the affected area in order to relieve your pain, discomfort and restricted movement. Osteopaths do this using a range of techniques including soft tissue massage and stretching, joint mobilisation, spinal mobilisation and trigger point release. Osteopaths not only look at the symptoms but seek out the source of your problem.

Myotherapy is: The assessment, treatment and management of musculoskeletal conditions, which may cause muscular dysfunction and pain thus affecting movement and mobility. Myotherapists utilise a range of treatment techniques to restore and maintain the normal integrity of the soft tissue structures (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia).

2. Do you treat Children? Is it safe?

Osteopathic care is safe, gentle and effective without the use of drugs or surgery. It can assist the young body to adapt to growth-related changes which can prevent other health problems. It can help your baby grow into a healthy child and, ultimately, a healthy young adult.

Osteopaths treat babies, children and teenagers for a range of conditions. Effective, early treatment can prevent other problems from occurring.
