The answer is virtually anyone. From the elderly to the infant, Osteopathy is well suited to help anyone with their injuries or dysfunctions.  Its not commonly known, but even infants suffer from injuries as a result of the birthing process.  Osteopathic treatments and techniques are perfectly suited for infants because they imply a relaxed passive treatment to the delicate infant.  

Osteopaths consider the entire body when dealing with an injury.  This means that the practitioner may not only consider the bony or muscular structure when evaluating an injury, they may also consider treating the patients organs.  Organs can play a role in many injuries, because, just as muscles and ligaments are suspended from the bony structure of the body, so too are the organs. 

How do osteopaths differ from other health care providers?

Who can see an osteopath?

what should I expect from a treatment?

Are treatments painful?

An initial appointment is conducted in an hour session. In this time, the therapist will conduct an assessment.  This will involve gathering health history information, as well as a physical assessment of your body based on the complaints presented.  Finally, the patient can expect some treatment on the initial consult, based on time requirements.

All subsequent  appointments will typically be an hour in length, based on the discretion of the therapist.

Not at all.  An Osteopathic treatment is a very passive and soft manual therapy.  Osteopathy works with your available movements and body type to help restore your available motion and body's well being.
