Osteopathy is a medical speciality with a primary focus on the management of musculoskeletal pain and injury. Osteopathy is a suitable treatment modality for
- Whiplash, spinal pain and "trapped nerves"
- Sports injuries
- Tendon injuries such as tennis elbow and golfers elbow, and Achilles pain.
- Post-surgical pain
- Rheumatic and arthritic conditions
Osteopaths believe that effective management must also recognise the multitude of factors which have an impact on an individual’s unique experience of pain and health. They will also assess such factors as how we sleep, what we eat, and how we train and recover, can impact an individual’s unique experience of pain and health.
What makes our Osteopathy service different at Bodybalance?
Our Osteopathy service at Bodybalance is one of a select number of services in the country to recognise and embrace the latest principles of Applied Functional Science (AFS). AFS was developed by Physical Therapists – Dr Gary Gray and Dr Dave Tiberio. Their work has helped to pioneer the practice of physical therapy, injury prevention, rehabilitation, and Strength and Conditioning across the world. The focus of AFS is on helping individuals to find unique movement strategies based on their intrinsic movement repertoire. In this sense, Physical rehabilitation is simply an extension of the movements that define our life and sporting repertoire. This approach is a time effective and efficient way to prevent and rehabilitate injury, and improve performance.
Our clinicians also have post graduate qualifications in Strength & Conditioning and Sports Medicine, and are well placed to work in collaboration with the Physiotherapy and Sports Massage therapists to provide the most effective treatment for each individual.

The Treatment Process
Just like any health care consultation, an initial appointment with an Osteopath will involve a subjective case history and a detailed examination. Following this the Osteopath will provide you with a diagnosis that you can understand, and one that gives you the confidence to stay active, and reach your goals. They will also explain how long it will take to get better and what additional factors will assist your recovery.
