What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is an established, recognised system of diagnosis and treatment that lays its main emphasis on the structural integrity of the body. Osteopathy is distinctive in that its approach recognises much of the pain and disability that we suffer stems from abnormalities in the functioning of the body's framework - as well as damage caused by disease and injury.

Osteopaths use many of the diagnostic procedures used in conventional medical assessment and diagnosis. Osteopathy's main strength, however, lies in the unique way the patient is assessed from a mechanical, functional and postural standpoint, and the manual methods of treatment applied to suit the needs of the individual patient. Close attention is applied to the effects of the patient's lifestyle, taking into account stress, posture and occupation, to name but a few.

At our St Albans practice, we apply this when treating and managing the following :

Low back pain 
Neck pain
Slipped disc
Sciatica
Headaches & migraine
Sports injuries
Postural problems
Repetitive strain injuries
Frozen shoulder
Tendininits / tendinopathy

Problems associated with arthritis
Hip / knee / ankle injuries

Pregnancy related problems
Chronic & longterm aches & pains

…and many more. Should you require further advice on the above, or if we have not included your complaint on the list, then please contact us 01727-832359 or info@coeassociates.co.uk, and we will be happy to help.
