Techniques

Droitwich Spa Osteopaths employ a wide range of proven techniques for each individual case.

 

We offer;

  • Osteopathy
  • Soft Tissue Massage
  • Acupuncture - Research shows that when acupuncture needles are inserted into the skin the body releases endorphins. Endorphins are the natural pain relieving chemicals stored in the brain. These chemicals not only provide pain relief but also assist the body in its healing process. When acupuncture is used it may be combined with a range of other treatment techniques such as exercise and manual therapy.
  • Between 5 to 10 needles may be inserted surrounding the area of pain and left for up to 30 minutes. Acupuncture does not work for all patients and response rates vary, but most patients experience pain relief when conventional medical treatment has not worked.
  • Acupuncture can be used in a wide range of conditions including:

  • Arthritis Management, Headaches, Low Back Pain, Neck Pain, Soft Tissue Injuries, Stress, Temporo –mandibular joint dysfunction

  • UltrasoundUltrasound can be used on both chronic and acute conditions and is commonly used in the treatment of muscle, tendon and ligament injuries. High frequency sound waves are focused around the site of an injury by gently moving an ultrasonic head over the affected area. These sound waves perform a ‘micro-massage’ deep inside the injured tissues speeding up the healing process.
  • Sports Massage
  • Cranial Osteopathy
  • Exercise Regimes
