The downside of not having your supervision for your exercise is you may be more likely to experience an injury. Our job is to educate you and ensure you know when to seek help.

Assessment: Your osteopath will look at your gait cycle and will perform testing to come up with a diagnosis. Your osteopath will also look at the mobility in the whole lower limb from your ankles all the way up to your back.
Treatment: Treatment will be personalised to your case and may involve some or all of massage, stretching techniques, joint movement and manipulation of the joints. We often use dry needling in the lower limb as well.
Advice: Again this will be individual on a case by case basis and will involve some exercises for strengthening and flexibility in the lower limb. You will also be given guidance on what to avoid and how long for.
