When looking for an Osteopath it is very important to find the right osteopath for you. Osteopaths take a holistic approach to health and we consider all factors involved in a person’s life in order to identify health issues and resolve them. We as osteopaths undergo extensive training, which gives us a high level of expertise in issues relating to the body’s balance and overall health. Osteopathic studies are extensive and in some countries studies are the equivalent of a medical degree. In United Kingdom our profession is highly regarded and an osteopath in London will normally have completed a bachelor degree followed by masters and some professionals will have doctor degrees in osteopathy. The study is normally anywhere between five to six years and sometimes more.
Osteopathic professionals use many manipulative techniques to bring the body to its optimal function. If the joints of the body are out, pain can be produced and cause unnecessary stress on the mind, and cause illness. The exact cause of the pain in the joints misalignments are hypothesised as many things. Some believe the pain stems from the ligaments of the joint experiencing stress as a safety reflex mechanism stimulated by the body. It is also believed the pain my come from pressure changes happening in the body due to the joint’s subluxation. These are issues myself and osteopathic colleagues aim to resolve while treating patients.
One technique we use to treat patients is cranial osteopathy. A cranial osteopath in London is not hard to find. We normally work along side other health professionals such as massage therapists to bring the body back to full health. Cranial Osteopathy involves sensitive monitoring for a cranial rhythm that only a highly experienced osteopath can perform. That experience acquires the touch to monitor rhythmic changes on the patient’s cranial rhythm and so they can achieve a rhythm they feel is optimal. The treatment is relatively gentle and becomes pleasant for those with experience with receiving the treatment. One of our osteopaths has been regarded by many of his patients as “the best osteopath in London. We have highly qualified professional with elite training in providing treatment is beneficial for people of all ages and including children and the elderly.
