Patients will typically see an osteopath when they are feeling restricted in their movement, they are experiencing pain/discomfort or wish to remain balanced and feel the benefit of regular adjustments (or a combination of all three).

An Osteopath can also help prevent problems by pinpointing potential sources of pain before they develop further. Osteopaths are used to seeing people with pain in a wide variety of areas, and in some cases treatment can be focused away from the problem area as it may be that the underlying cause is located at a different point on the body.

This helps to treat the underlying cause as well as the presenting symptoms.

What is Osteopathy? Looking for an Osteopath in Littlehampton?

Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment aimed at restoring and maintaining balance to the entire body, promoting overall health and wellbeing. It looks to treat the individual as a whole and is not isolated to the specific symptoms. Osteopathy uses a combination of touch, physical manipulation, massage and stretching to help improve the mobility of joints, relieve muscle tension and promote blood and nerve supply to connective tissues which in turn will help your body to return to a good state of health.

 What is a treatment like?

Treatment is gentle and effective, being tailored to each specific patient and using precision and minimum force. As well as hands on treatment you may also be provided with advice on how to maintain the benefits of the session going forwards. This can include stretches and lifestyle advice to help you stay in good health.
 
As a new patient, your Osteopath will spend time understanding your problem, your medical history and any previous treatments you have had as well as conducting clinical testing where necessary. A full consultation allows the treatment to be given in a way that is unique to you, as no two bodies are the same. They will also assess the balance and integrity of your whole musculo-skeletal system to fully comprehend where underlying causes may lie.
 
With this information, the Osteopath forms a considered plan for treatment and can apply it with gentle precision. Their extensive training combined with the information gained following a consultation makes it possible to encourage your body’s healing faculties to overcome the problem.

Our main aim at the Littlehampton Natural Health Centre is to improve your quality of life. Whether this is through reducing your pain, increasing flexibility, improving posture, maintaining a healthy body or increasing your performance. We help people manage life in a more positive manner.
 
Before we can perform any adjustments we need to find out some details about you. Your Osteopath will run through a detailed personal history including details on your symptoms, any medications, operations or past treatments you have had. We will then run through a physical examination to get a good overview of how your body is functioning. This physical assessment will include assessing your joint range of motion, muscle strength, gait, skin sensations and neurological function. We will also perform some specific orthopaedic tests. If necessary we will also run through a cardiovascular, respiratory and abdominal screening.
 
At the end of the examination, we will explain any findings and our treatment plan. If you are happy to proceed then your Osteopath can carry out any necessary adjustments.
