Abi Shrapnell – one of 21st Century Clinic’s resident osteopaths. Read about Abi.

Osteopathy is a process of diagnosis and treatment to alleviate the symptoms of a wide range of medical conditions. Osteopathy targets the structure and function of the body, and considers  the muscles, skeleton, ligaments and connective tissues to be vitally important to an individual’s well being.

How osteopathy treatment works

Osteopathy involves producing a detailed case history for each patient to help identify the possible underlying health problems contributing to a presenting health problem. The osteopath assesses your posture and the area of pain to produce a diagnosis. Once this initial stage has been completed and explained to the patient, osteopathic treatment can then commence.
