Osteopath Ipswich

Updated on May 25, 2015

Find an Osteopath In Ipswich

When I first move to Ipswich from London finding an Osteopath in Ipswich area of the UK was a top priority for me.

It was very important to me to find the right Ipswich Osteopath to treat my back problems and also someone I would be happy with. I had been receiving treatment in London and was very happy and comfortable with the lovely lady osteopath that treated me there, but finding someone new was a daunting task.

When you need to use someone for hands-on treatment it can make you can feel very vulnerable, so finding an ethical qualified practitioner is a must.

Osteopathic Treatment

Is Osteopathic Treatment Right For Me

If you are looking for an osteopath but are a bit uncertain, remember that to qualify, an osteopath must study for four to five years for an undergraduate degree. This is similar to a medical degree, with more emphasis on anatomy and musculoskeletal medicine. By law, osteopaths in Ipswich must register with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). It is an offence for anyone to call themselves an osteopath if they are not registered.

Initially the Osteopath will ask you about the pain you have been suffering and then do a physical examination of the area in question. After the examination the Osteopath will create the correct treatment plan that is right for you.

There are many ways in which pain in the joints can begin. Your joint pain may be arthritic pain or be caused by sports injuries or simply from wear and tear. Once it has been established where your joint pain is coming from, then you can begin your treatment plan.

There are different treatments such as soft tissue, joint articulation, mobilisation and manipulation which can be used to improve the range of motion in the joints and help to decrease pain.

An osteopath has different techniques they can use to help your body's healing system. They will want to make sure the musculoskeletal system is in balance. They will also try to help the body's overall ability to heal itself through stretching, massage and manipulation. Depending on your complaint, your osteopath may also recommend changes in your lifestyle and diet.

Initially you may have to see the osteopath every week and after a few treatments your condition should be greatly improved.
