What is an Osteopath?

Here at Bradley Stoke Physio & Health, our Osteopath, Hannah, uses a 'whole-person' approach to help you recover from pain and injury, and to keep you active and doing the things you need and love to do. This means Hannah is mindful of the physical and emotional elements of pain, and of the impact of the problem in the context of your life. Hannah is committed to working with you to help you feel better.

What conditions can Osteopathy treat?

Osteopathy can treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions including neck and back pain, headaches, or other joint, muscle and tendon pain.

Interestingly, Hannah’s experience shows that people with long-term, persistent pain, can also benefit from Osteopathic input. Persistent pain is often defined as pain that last more than 12 weeks. It can be difficult to manage, perhaps not even responding to usual medical treatment, and can also affect the relationships people have with their friends and family.

Arthritis is another example of pain that can be helped by Osteopathy. By looking at the way you move your body, and using hands-on osteopathic treatment, as well as exercises, we can help ease pain and improve function.

How does Osteopathy work?

Treatment aims to help ease pain, and restore movement and function of injured or problem areas. Hannah’s osteopathic treatment is hands-on yet comfortable and may include massage, stretching, and movement of the joints and muscles. You may also be given self-care advice and exercises to practice outside of your appointments.
