Frequently asked questions
Am I too old or my baby too young for osteopathy?
Age is not a barrier to receiving osteopathic treatment as treatment is specifically adapted to the individual needs of the person.
Is it safe?
Osteopathy is actually a very safe form of treatment. All treatment carries the possibility of worsening symptoms in the short term. This is usually a result of tight muscles being released which leaves them aching for a while just as they do after exercise. Occasionally release of one area of the body places more strain upon another leading it to complain, this is again a positive response and shows treatment is working but is not yet complete. A few techniques carry a larger risk, if these are applicable to you then you will be informed beforehand.
