Osteopathy Treatments by Liz Walker 

Osteopaths are trained to recognise and treat many causes of pain and disability. This can stem from abnormalities in the body's structure (bones, Ligaments and connective tissue) and from symptoms associated with a variety of health problems. 
 
It is the Osteopath's comprehensive approach to healthcare that makes this treatment unique. 
 

Common reasons to see an Osteopath include... 

Back pain 
Neck pain 
Joint pain 
Sciatica 
Slipped disc 
Rheumatic pain 
Arthritic pain 
Leg pain 
Postural problems caused by driving or work strain 
Headaches and migraines arising from the neck 
Back pain during and after pregnancy 
Shoulder pain 
Repetitive strain injury 
Sports injury 
Tennis Elbow 
Muscle spasms 
Colic, sickness and wind in babies 
 
Patients are assessed from a mechanical, functional and postural standpoint and then treatment is given using gentle manual techniques suited to the individual needs of the patient. 
 
Treatments are designed to stimulate the body's own natural healing processes. 
 

Specialist Treatments 

Liz often finds that people are unaware of how Osteopathy can help in a wide variety of health situations. Liz specialises in a number of areas including strains caused from simple working activity through to Cranial Osteopathy. 
 
Cranial Osteopathy 
 
Cranial Osteopathy is a refined and subtle type of Osteopathy that uses very gentle manipulative pressure to encourage the release of stresses throughout the body, including the head. It can be effective in treating a wide range of conditions in people of all ages, from birth to old age. 
 
Work related conditions 
 
What is less recognised is the use of Osteopathy to relieve the symptoms of less obvious stresses and strains often found in the work place such as... 
 
Repetitive strain injury 
Tension caused by limited activity (sitting at a computer) 
Postural issues 
 
The fact is that early treatment of these stresses and strains will be quicker and easier than if you leave it too long, plus, Liz can help you with your posture and give you advice on how to avoid any re-occurance in the future.
