Welcome to Oban Osteopathy
Osteopathy is a gentle and effective method of assessing, treating and preventing a wide range of health problems and musculoskeletal conditions. It uses a combination of movement, stretching, targeted deep tissue massage and manipulation of a person’s muscles and joints to improve function, relieve pain and aid recovery.
Osteopathy is suitable for:
- Back pain
- Neck and shoulder pain
- Sports injuries
- Joint problems
- Elderly people
- Pregnant women
- Office professionals
- Sports players
Osteopathy works well to complement other medical interventions including surgery and prescribed medication, and osteopaths frequently work alongside other health professionals, such as GPs, nurses and midwives.
Osteopathic treatment can be beneficial for expectant mothers, helping the body cope with strains associated with pregnancy and childbirth. Cranial Osteopathy is a gentle, non-invasive treatment which is widely used in treatment of babies and children.
The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) advises that GPs can safely refer patients to an osteopath for treatment and Osteopaths are recognised by the NHS as fully qualified to diagnose and treat independently.
Amy has recently moved to Oban and is a qualified and registered osteopath. She brings a wealth and variety of osteopathic experience with her.
