Osteopathy is a form of alternative medicine which involves the use of manual therapy to treat musculoskeletal disorders. It works by stimulating specific muscles and joints through gentle manipulation, which can help you to improve your overall health and wellbeing.

An osteopath will offer you treatment for a wide range of common ailments and conditions. The goal of the osteopath is to find the underlying cause of your pain or discomfort and not just treat the symptoms. This means that they’ll look at what’s going on with your body, including any physical injuries or injuries that have happened in the past, as well as emotional issues that may be contributing to what’s causing your problem.
Osteopaths are trained to treat their patients using gentle manual manipulation techniques that mimic how our bodies naturally work when we’re healthy (and when we’re not). They use this knowledge about how our bodies work together to help us feel better faster than usual medical care could provide alone—and without resorting to drugs or surgery downgrades into pseudoscientific quackery like reflexology (which involves tapping acupressure points) because it doesn’t actually address any underlying issues
The most common conditions treated are headaches and back pain and other spinal problems,
The most common conditions treated are headaches and back pain and other spinal problems, but extensive training led by a thorough knowledge of physiology, anatomy and pathology enables osteopaths to treat a wide range of diseases and illnesses affecting the musculoskeletal system. Osteopathy is also used for injuries such as fractures, sprains or strains; soft tissue injuries such as tennis elbow; chronic low back pain; whiplash (cervical spine); carpal tunnel syndrome; sciatica; rotator cuff tendinitis/gastrocnemius tendonitis/tennis elbow etc., along with many others.
At Croydon Osteopathic practice we also use dry needling or western acupuncture to help with our patients condition.
Dry needling is a technique used in osteopathy and it’s also known as western acupuncture. It uses needles to stimulate the deep connective tissue of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and other soft tissues.
The aim of dry needling is to mobilize trapped energy so that it can be released from injury sites and return into the body where it belongs. When there’s been damage to the muscle or tendon due to overuse or injury this can result in pain that may not go away despite treatment by a physiotherapist or chiropractor.

Osteopathy is a great way to deal with chronic pain in the muscles and bones.
Osteopathy is a holistic treatment that treats the body as a whole. It’s focused on treating the musculoskeletal system, which includes bones, muscles and joints—the area where our pain originates. Osteopaths use gentle manipulation of your spine to relieve tension or pressure in these areas by realigning your skeleton so it can function properly again.
Osteopathy has been shown to be effective in treating many common ailments including:
- Back pain (including sciatica)
Osteopathy has been around for more than 100 years, and it’s still one of the most effective treatments available today. An osteopath will work with you to find out what is causing your pain, then create an individualized treatment plan that includes dry needling or acupuncture if necessary. At Osteopath in Croydon, we also use dry needling or western acupuncture to help with our patient’s condition.
