Osteopathy’s main emphasis is the structural and functional integrity of the whole body. Osteopaths focus on the body’s skeleton and joint function along with the underlying muscles, soft tissue and internal organs. When you see one of our osteopaths here in Bath, they will consider the possibility that pain and disability may stem from an area of imbalance in another body region, as well as the area of injury itself.
Osteopathy is much more than just treating back pain by the ‘clicking’ of joints.
Osteopaths diagnose and treat their patients using mainly their hands. On your first visit to the clinic in Bath you will have ample opportunity to express your expectations and raise any concerns you have about osteopathic treatment. The osteopath will ask you many questions to build up an idea of your specific complaint and to assess your general health. A treatment plan will then be discussed and agreed on before any treatment is started as every patient is individual in their requirements. Further information can be found here if you are a GP wishing to refer a patient to The London Road Clinic, Bath. We have parking available at the clinic for patients as parking in central Bath can be difficult, especially when suffering from pain.
