James Arnold - Osteopathy is an alternative medical manual therapy
My name is James, I qualified from the European School of Osteopathy in 2012 obtaining a masters degree in osteopathy and immediately set up my own practice in Alcester. As well as operating within a clinical environment I lecture at the ESO teaching students the fundamental and advanced osteopathic techniques.
Osteopathy is an alternative medical manual therapy that uses a variety of techniques to address a wide variety of musculoskeletal problems.
Osteopathic treatment utilises biomechanical theory and physical techniques to detect the current primary issue and any previous problems that have helped contribute to the presenting problems. When diagnosing, the entire body is assessed and taken into account as it is common place for several problem areas to amount into the presenting complaint.
It is possible for osteopathy to address physical problems that are both long standing and recently occurring, however as with all manual therapies, for maximum effectiveness, the sooner a problem is addressed then the better the overall outcome will be.
The physical problems that osteopathy can help with are quite numerous and thanks to a wide variety of techniques it is possible to cater to a wide variety of ages and people allowing treatment from newborn to old age and everything in between.
Physical problems that are typically helped are: -
- Low back pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Knee Pain
- Associated symptoms of Intervertebral disk injury
During the first visit a full case history about the current issues is taken as well as past medical history, which is then followed by examination and treatment as well as any help and advice to be done between session. The first session takes an hour with subsequent sessions being 45 minutes.
