Osteopathy - Sutton Coldfield

Osteopathic Treatment at Exhale Sutton Coldfield​​

Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine that focuses primarily on diagnosing and treating problems with the musculoskeletal system.

The diagnosis and treatment of conditions are achieved through non-invasive means – so no surgery or medication. Instead an osteopathic practitioner will detect the cause of your problem by analysing the way your body moves, by both a visual assessment and by touch. 

Utilising techniques including joint mobilisations, manipulations, stretching, and massage, Osteopaths aim to enhance joint mobility and alleviate muscle and joint discomfort. Additionally, they may employ supplementary methods such as gentle cranial techniques, rehabilitative exercises, and guidance on self-management strategies tailored to your condition.

Common questions​

Osteopaths’ patients include the young, the more mature person, manual workers, office professionals, pregnant women, children and sports people. Patients seek treatment for a wide variety of conditions, including back pain, shoulder/neck pain, knee, ankle pain, repetitive strain injuries, changes to posture in pregnancy, postural problems caused by driving or work strain, the pain of arthritis and most sports injuries.

The number of sessions you need depends on the condition and person we are treating. The aim is to keep your appointments to a minimum. Your osteopath will usually be able to tell you by the second treatment the number of treatments that are likely to be required and this will be discussed with you after the diagnosis has been explained at your initial assessment.

Your initial consultation with the Osteopath will include a detailed case history taking as well as careful observation and examination using highly developed skills of palpation (feel through touch), to find areas of restriction, strain, and weakness in the body.
A movement and postural analysis will then be completed along side special diagnostic tests to diagnosis your symptoms. After making a diagnosis, your Osteopath will explain their findings and discuss their diagnosis and treatment plan with you so you can understand what’s causing the problem. Treatment will the be provided to relieve your symptoms, improve function and promote healing. Through treatment and advice, we also seek to help reduce the chances of the problem recurring.

There is the possibility of feeling a little sore/achy for up to 48 hours after a treatment. Most people will usually start feeling better after this.
