What is an Osteopath?
An N1, N17, N4, N5, E8, & E5 Osteopath uses their clinical knowledge together with their highly skilled sense of touch, known as palpation, to diagnose and treat people. Osteopaths are primary health care practitioners and recognised as Allied Health Professionals by Public Health England with a statutory regulatory body, The General Osteopathic Council. All Osteopaths practising in the UK have undergone rigorous clinical training for 4 to 5 years.
The aim of osteopathic treatment is to optimise a person’s ability to express health and osteopaths will use many techniques and approaches in their treatments. At N1, N17, N4, N5, E8, & E5 Butterfield Osteopathy specialise in the osteopathic techniques that are characterised by the use of ‘gentle touch’ more popularly known as ‘cranial osteopathy’.
Massage therapy dates back thousands of years to ancient cultures that believed in its medical benefits: aiding recovery from injuries, relieving pain, reducing stress and producing a deep relaxation. Massage is a combination of various movements used to manipulate tissues for both local and overall effects and benefits. The movements range from gentle strokes to invigorating friction depending on the desired effect.
First Time Appointments
The first appointment with an osteopath involves taking a thorough medical history followed by a physical examination and treatment, if appropriate. The osteopath will make a diagnosis and discuss a treatment plan with you. Occasionally the osteopath might need to refer you to your medical practitioner or another treatment.
