Welcome to Alison Simmons Osteopathy
What is Osteopathy? Why visit an Osteopath?
Osteopathy is an established, recognised system of diagnosis and treatment that lays its main emphasis on the structural integrity of the body. It is distinctive in the fact that it recognises much of the pain and disability we suffer stems from abnormalities in the function of the body structure as well as damage caused to it by disease.
Osteopathy uses many of the diagnostic procedures used in conventional medical assessment and diagnosis. Its main strength, however, lies in the unique way the patient is assessed from a mechanical, functional and postural standpoint and the manual methods of treatment applied to suit the needs of the individual patient.
Osteopathic treatment helps to reduce tissue inflammation by a number of methods, ranging from massage of muscles and connective tissues to manipulation and stretching of joints. This helps to reduce muscle spasm and increase mobility, helping to create a healthier state in which damaged tissues can heal.
