What Do We Treat

Osteopathy

It’s a common misconception that osteopaths only treat back pain but we treat a wide range of conditions. At Wisbey Osteopathy we have got more than just your back.

Areas of the body we treat:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Shoulder, elbow and arm pain
  • Hand and wrist pain
  • Hip, knee and leg pain, including groin pain
  • Ankle and foot pain

Some examples of specific conditions we treat:

  • Arthritic pain
  • Circulatory problems
  • Digestion problems
  • Fibromyalgia and chronic pain conditions
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Headaches
  • Generalised aches and pains
  • Plantarfasciitus
  • Sciatica
  • Sports injuries including sprains and strains
  • Tennis elbow and Golfers elbow
  • Muscle spasms
  • Neuralgia (pain from injured/damaged nerve)
  • Tension and inability to relax
  • Rheumatic pain

This is not an exhaustive list so if you aren’t sure whether osteopathy is suitable you can contact us; we’re more that happy to discuss your needs and answer your questions!

We also offer:

  • Pre-habilitation – because prevention is better than cure, we can help you to decrease your risk of injury whether than be due to the demands of sport, work or life in general.
  • Rehabilitation – rehabilitation post-injury or post-surgery won’t just stop when your osteopathic treatment sessions finish. We will be able to provide you with tools and advice to continue gaining strength and confidence in your body again. Sam works closely with Sean Lowes an established Personal Trainer based in Hertfordshire who can take you on the next part of your recovery journey should you wish to do so.

Sports Massage

“Sports massage” is a misleading name because it’s not just for the people doing major physical activity. Everyone can benefit from sports massage no matter their level of daily exercise.

Some of these benefits include:

  • Enhancing circulation
  • Increasing tissue elasticity and therefore flexibility
  • Reducing muscle tension
  • Relieving painful muscles as a result of tension or posture-related pain
  • Reducing risk of injuries in the future
  • Recovering from intensive physical activity

Deep Tissue & Relaxation Massage

Rather than being driven by injury or pain, relaxation massage is for exactly what it says on the tin: relaxation. It’s great for unwinding and treating yourself to some important ‘me-time’. You shouldn’t have to wait until you’re in pain before you have a massage.
