Massage – from gentle stretching and easing techniques for sensitive tissues, through to stronger myofascial release and deep friction for chronic fibrous tissue and some sports injuries.
Articulation and stretching – to improve flexibility and restore a better physiological function to the joints and spine.
Traction – to stretch and decompress the neck and lumbar spine.
Mobilisation techniques – these range from specific localised repeated gentle toggling to the high velocity, low amplitude manipulations which give the distinctive ‘clicking’ or ‘popping’ sound when the joint releases.
Exercises, postural advice and self-help information – so that you can maintain improved mobility between treatments and prevent further problems.
Osteopaths are trained to check for signs of serious conditions – if this is the case, we’ll tell you what we believe to be the problem and refer you to your GP for further investigation.
The Osteopathic Practice is easily accessible from Warwick, Coventry, Rugby and Kenilworth, so call us on 01926 335932. You don’t need to be referred by your GP unless you’re claiming back your costs under a private health scheme.
