Cranial Osteopathy for adults can be a very deep influence on tension states and hormonally irritated problems. Period problems in particular can be assisted. Please speak to our cranial Osteopath, Tom Conba, for further information.

Other areas of management include the formulation of an individual exercise program, with emphasis on breathing exercises and the avoidance of aggravating factors. The osteopath also provides advice on diet, posture, lifestyle and first aid measures during an attack.

What will happen?

Before any treatment, an osteopath always conducts a full examination, using conventional medical tests where necessary. A full medical case history will be taken, including any accidents, illnesses, operations and any other factors which may contribute to reduced health.

As part of this process, the osteopath will assess whether osteopathic treatment is the best option, or whether the patient should be referred to another practitioner. Occasionally a combination of osteopathy and other treatment may be the most appropriate approach for the patient.

What kind of treatment does an osteopath provide?

During the physical examination, the osteopath uses sensitive palpatory skills, to identify where a patient’s structure has been disturbed. Osteopathic treatment involves soft tissue techniques, along with articulation and mobilisation of the joints. The treatment is gentle and conducted with the patient’s assistance.
