Osteopathic treatment can be very beneficial in the management of osteoarthritis and in the treatment of sporting injuries. If you are unsure whether we can assist with your injury, call us today to discuss it with an expert.
When you first arrive, you will be asked to fill in a personal information sheet which includes questions relating to your past medical history and your presenting complaint. You will then move to the consulting room where your osteopath will take a detailed history. It is important to give as much information as possible to derive the most accurate diagnosis.
Once this has been done, your osteopath will perform an examination relating to your injury. This will involve palpating (examining by touch) and moving your limbs and torso in multiple directions in an attempt to reproduce your familiar pain. You may be required to partially disrobe during the examination.
By now, your osteopath should have a working diagnosis and will treat you based on what they have found in the examination. At this point, they will also give you a detailed prognosis and recommend any stretches/exercises which they feel will assist your recovery. Read More

Pilates is a form of exercise which aims to improve posture, build strength and gain flexibility. By making you more aware of how you use your body it gives you greater insight into the subtle (or not so subtle!) ways you mistreat your body on a daily basis. By correcting these problems, it is often possible to alleviate pain and unlock a freedom of movement which you never thought possible.
Pilates involves moving your body through different positions whilst focusing on correct pelvis, neck and shoulder alignment, and maintaining proper breathing. These positions and movements are designed to challenge your strength, flexibility, coordination, and stability. Read More
A pre-pointe assessment will indicate when a dancer’s body is ready to begin pointe work. Beginning pointe work before one’s body is ready can lead to injuries later on in a dancer’s career, so care is required in the younger years to build up strength.
Steph has had extensive training in classical ballet and has previously taught ballet for younger students. Steph uses her skills now to treat dancers and conduct pre-pointe assessments. She understands the demands of dancing and pointe work both as a dancer and as a health professional. Read More
