We are pleased to announce that Joseph Robinson DO BSc (Hons) Ost. , an Osteopath based in Cambridgeshire, has joined Salus Wellness, the complementary health centre which recently opened in Cambridge.
Joseph specialises in chronic pain and sports osteopathy. A primary healthcare for all ages Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. Osteopathy treats the structural and functional mechanics of the body i.e. the muscles, joints, ligaments and nerves thus relieving pain, discomfort and immobility. Osteopathy seeks to find and treat the root cause of the injury. Invariably we find that a problem or previous injury elsewhere is predisposing a current injury, for example, a knee or ankle injury can cause low back pain as the body compensates for these problems through the spine.
Osteopaths use hands-on techniques to manipulate and improve blood and nerve supply thus allowing the repair of damaged tissues and eliminating pain. Osteopaths use a wide range of orthopaedic tests and hands on palpation to diagnose musculo-skeletal injuries. Following an in depth case history to get an understanding of the problem at hand, the osteopath will examine the patient using the tests mentioned above and at each step of the way relate to the patient what they are assessing. Once a diagnosis has been formed the osteopath will explain to the patient what injury has happened, how it happened and how they intend to treat it.
Osteopathic treatment uses a wide range of soft tissue techniques as well as joint mobilisation, manipulation, exercises and postural advice to help relieve the following and more:
