Osteopathy

 

Osteopathy

Andy Hodgson has practiced Traditional and Cranial Osteopathy for the Bodylab team for over 4 years. He is an ex runner and swimmer and now competes in Pentathlon.
Osteopathy views the body as a whole and attempts to
address the underlying causes of physical problems and pain.
An osteopath investigates why you are experiencing pain and prescribes treatment to encourage the body to use its own healing mechanisms. Osteopathy is a manual therapy – osteopaths have a highly developed sense of touch and incorporate a wide variety of movements such as massage techniques, stretches, articulations and manipulations to treat muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, the nervous system etc.
At your first session, you will be taken through a series of movements to assess movement quality and joint mobility, identifying possible sources of your condition. Andy’s treatment then integrates traditional Osteopathy with Cranial Sacral techniques to nuture you back to normality.
