Once the treatment plan has been agreed with the patient, Fiona will start treating using the treatments already mentioned – a combination of gentle massage, stretching and joint articulation and mobilisation as appropriate. Mobilisation may involve the use of a technique called high velocity low amplitude thrust (HVT). The aim of this treatment is to improve range of movement in a joint and reduce muscular tension surrounding that joint. With the consent of the patient, dry-needling ('modern acupuncture') may also be used to release muscle tension by treating specific trigger points. This alleviates nerve tissue irritation by reducing the nerve impulse, or stimulating local blood supply where it may be naturally poor. Cranial Osteopathy may also be used as appropriate (click here for more information).
The Osteopath will get a brief update from the patient as to their symptoms and how they are progressing after which they will continue treating as agreed in the initial appointment. Additional exercises and advice will be given as appropriate.
Combined Osteopathic 1 hour appointment (£55)
In some cases, it is recommended that patients come back for one or more combined 1 hour long Osteopathic treatments - particularly when acupuncture and/or Cranial Osteopathy is combined with structural Osteopathic treatment.
