About Atlas Osteopathy Chiswell Street
As osteopaths, we treat each person as an individual. Utilising a variety of techniques, we work with your body to create the perfect conditions to encourage the healing process. We assess and treat people of any age and condition, from pregnant women to sports people.
Some of the common complaints that patients consult us for include back and neck pain, sciatica, headaches caused by tension in the neck muscles, joint aches and pain (including frozen shoulder and tennis elbow), pain from arthritis and sports injuries.
Osteopathy is a holistic approach to the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of medical conditions.
It works with the structure and function of the body, based on the principle of the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning properly.
Techniques range from gentle stretching techniques to deeper soft tissue work and gentle joint mobilisation through to direct joint manipulation. The treatment style will vary depending on your individual needs, with supplementary advice given to patients on lifestyle, exercise, ergonomics and dietary issues.
Osteopathy can help with the assessment and treatment of people of any age from the elderly to the newborn and from pregnant women to sports people. The British Medical Associations guidance for general practitioners states that doctors can safely refer patients to osteopaths.
