Osteopathy at Knead to Relax in Stirling
At Knead to Relax, we believe that many conditions causing pain in the body can be resolved through osteopathy - a gentle treatment which can be used to address structural misalignments and postural imbalances. Osteopaths assess and treat people of any age from the elderly to the newborn and the treatment will be tailored around each persons needs and abilities. Marta Porrini, our Osteopath, is a key part of the team at Knead to Relax in Stirling and is a talented and experienced osteopath.
What is Osteopathy?
Although osteopaths treat many conditions, most people think of us as 'back specialists'. Back pain is what many osteopaths deal with a lot of the time but we also treat other joints in the body - neck, pelvis, hips, knees, shoulders etc., and many varied conditions and injuries from headaches, to muscle strains, from arthritis to sciatic pain, and everything else in between.
Osteopathic treatment does not target only the symptoms but treats the parts of the body that have caused the symptoms. Osteopaths have a holistic approach and believe that your whole body will work well if your body is in good structural balance. We use a wide range of techniques, including spinal manipulation, massage, and joint mobilization and this breadth of approach allows us to focus on every patient's precise needs.
What conditions can osteopathy treat?
Osteopathy can be helpful with various conditions, from back pain to headaches and much more. Here is an example of what can be approached during your treatment:
- Pregnancy and post – partum: constipation, joint swelling, back ache, postural changes, urinary incontinence, strain from breast feeding;
- Babies and children: colic, constipation, feeding difficulties, growing pains, recurrent ear infections, secondary plagiocephaly;
- Everyday problems: Neck pain, back pain, headaches, gastro esophageal reflux;
- Later years: osteoarthritis, joint stiffness, muscle fatigue.
If your condition is not listed, get in touch with our osteopath who will be able to advise you further.
