Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a gentle, safe and non-invasive hands on approach to healthcare that has been practised for nearly 150 years.

It recognises that the body has its own self-regulating, self-healing mechanism that is constantly acting to try to maintain our bodies’ health. 

When something goes wrong and the body experiences dysfunction such as pain, osteopathy acts to help the body to return to self-healing by removing the obstacles to health.

  • Osteopathy is a hands on treatment which treats the whole body with the philosophy of structure governs function ie. If a joint in the spine is misaligned and not moving, causing nerve pressure that joint will not function properly and cause pain and stiffness.
  • Osteopathy is one of the most effective treatments for back and neck pain. It is also good for shoulder, knee and ankle problems.
  • The treatment consists of soft tissue massage to relax affected muscles plus ultra-sonic therapy to help pain and inflammation plus Osteopathic manipulation to realign the spine.
  • The treatment is relaxing and with a good experienced Osteopath, the pain level can be improved quite quickly, often in one session.
  • Osteopathic treatment can treat all parts of the spine and musculature and all other joints, from wrists to ankles and knees.
  • Commonly helped problems are low back pain, sciatica, nerve pain into the arm and shoulder , muscle injuries and mid back problems.
  • Mr Peter Arnold has been successfully  practising for over 30 years in Hitchin.
