Why Osteopathy

Back pain

Back pain isn’t the only reason why 30,000++ people every day in the UK visit their osteopath… 6 reasons why below.

(i) What’s the difference between an osteopath, a chiropractor and a physiotherapist?
(ii) Do I need to have back pain to book an appointment with my osteopath?
(iii) Do I need a referral to see my osteopath? (The answer is no!)

So let’s start at the very beginning! WHY OSTEOPATHY then WHEN OSTEOPATHY.

6 reasons why osteopathy works:

  1. You’ve had a minor injury but it’s now several days later and it isn’t improving
  2. You have ongoing pain and know you’re popping too many pills in order to cope with it
  3. After pregnancy your body is struggling to return to normal and baby is terribly unsettled too

             5. You’ve got a debilitating condition which can’t be cured but is causing you great discomfort
6. You suffer with regular headaches and migraine which makes your life a misery

How does osteopathy work?

To an osteopath, for our body to work well, its structure must also work well. So osteopaths work to restore our body to a state of balance, where possible without the use of drugs or surgery.
Why osteopathy? Osteopaths use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, to relieve muscle tension, to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and to help your body’s own healing mechanisms.
Your osteopath may also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.

So, why osteopathy? Osteopaths are like ‘Pain Detectives’. Highly skilled at working out where the main problem or issue is happening. Osteopaths trace back to the actual cause of the pain and deal with that too.

Why osteopathy at Susannah Makram Clinics ? It’s SAFE. CLINICAL. PRACTICAL. EFFECTIVE. What are Susannah’s colleagues and clients saying about her?
