Many mothers-to-be find osteopathic treatment very beneficial both to reduce back pain during pregnancy and also to help prepare the body for birth and to help re-align the body post birth. In addition, there is a wide variety of gentle non-manipulative techniques for use on infants and small children.
Although there are several techniques Andrew uses to treat sufferers, they all involve the release of stress and tension throughout the body to improve the movement of the bones and muscles in unison. Andrew strongly believes in the importance of finding the core cause of the problem rather then simply addressing the symptomatic area.
Patients generally consult Andrew for:
- Stress related pain
- Back and neck pain
- Pains in peripheral joints such as shoulders, knees and ankles, tendonitis and muscle strains
- Work-related and repetitive strain injuries
- Sports-related injuries.
